What’s green, is located along Midland Trail and witnesses regular sighting of eagles and birdies?
The Greenbrier Hills Golf Club!
An aspiring golfer in his own right, Terry McClung is resident manager, superintendent, groundskeeper and “chef” at the Greenbrier Hills Golf Club. He takes great personal ownership in the success of his home “turf.”
Open since 1933, Rainelle’s municipal course has a regular following of local golfers and out-of-town guests.
When asked what people like most, Terry comments, “The course isn’t easy, but not so hard players don’t have fun with it. It’s a par 70 course (played twice) with well-defined fairways and beautifully groomed greens. Although carts are available, it’s 90% level, making it super easy to walk.”
The course features 11 total greens and a putting green. It’s set up to play 18 holes, but golfers can choose to play 9. As a par 35, it offers 2,631 yards of golf from the longest tees.
Reasonable green fees is an understatement. You can get by on $7 for a round of golf if you prefer to walk; $22 if you want a cart and play the course twice. The pro shop is equipped with last-minute items and features a lunch counter with homemade daily specials and tried-and-true favorites like burgers and BLT’s, sloppy joe’s and hot dogs.
Open April – October, 8 am to 8 pm
