...organized for the purpose of offering real estate and resident memberships at The Greenbrier Sporting Club. The community, which spans all 11,000 acres of The Greenbrier resort's property, is the setting for this modern sporting club: an abundance of private, world-class amenities and pursuits, including hiking, biking, and golf - on a private 18-hole course designed by Tom Fazio named The Snead - as well as executive-level sports such as fly fishing, European sporting clays, equestrian center and more than 55 amenities of The Greenbrier. The combination of historical significance, architectural integrity, long-standing sporting tradition, and an abiding respect for the environment make The Greenbrier Sporting Club a sought-after setting for the entire family.
With all proposed private amenities completed in 2007, Sporting Club Members are actively enjoying the bounty of their resident membership, which offers full use and access to the facilities and services of the resort's amenities in addition to their own private amenities and activities.
In the summer of 2009, businessman Jim Justice of the Justice Family Group, LLC acquired both The Greenbrier resort and The Greenbrier Sporting Club, and has since infused both with his energy, enthusiasm and vision for the future. The Greenbrier Sporting Club, under the direction of the new ownership, is developed by The Greenbrier Hotel Corporation.

“The new astronomy program has held three events so far and each has been very well attended by members of all ages, from 4 and 5 year olds and up. Definitely the most interesting part is when Dave (Buhrman) hooks up the big telescope to the TV…it’s like watching a National Geographic special.” - Jacob Ott, Director of Outdoor Pursuits – Re: Astronomy Program (1.30.2007)
