One of the cornerstones of a luxury vacation is great food. Once a great vacation ends, you return home wishing that you could somehow re-create the culinary magic that you tasted while on your trip.
If you head to this unique resort in West Virginia, not only will you enjoy great food, golf, and relaxing spa treatments, but you will be able to take some of it home with you. Not the golf or the spa, but at least the great food.

Great golf awaits at the Greenbrier, a full-service resort located in the Allegheny Mountains in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. The resort's three championship golf courses will be more than a match for golf enthusiasts. After you've had your fill of golf, sit back and enjoy the views of the surrounding Allegheny Mountains, head to the spa, or take a day off and relax by the pool.
The resort's first 18-hole golf course was the Old White Course, which opened in 1913. One of the first golfers to play the course was president Woodrow Wilson in 1914. Originally constructed in 1924, the Greenbrier Course was redesigned by Jack Nicklaus for the 1979 Ryder Cup.
Originally a 9-hole course back in 1910, the Meadows Course was enlarged to 18 holes in 1962. Then in 1999 the course was redesigned by Robert Cupp. The course has great views of the surrounding mountains.
