HistoryGreenbrier Golf and Country Club was founded in 1971 to uphold the traditions, serenity and excellence of exclusive private golf and country club living. Originated and developed by William Morris Hart Sr. and Watts & Call, Inc., Greenbrier provides an environment unmatched in Lexington. From its inception in 1971 Greenbrier has remained true to Mr. Hart's vision of an upscale, uncrowded, family-oriented country club. Today, Greenbrier is owned and operated by Mr. Hart's two sons - William M. Hart Jr. and Larry Hart.
Greenbrier has hosted three Kentucky State Open Championships and since 1981 has been the annual site of the Children's Charity Classic, a nationally recognized celebrity-amateur golf fundraiser. Greenbrier Golf & Country Club has a 6,754-yard, par-72 course with Zoysiagrass fairways that is as beautiful as it is sophisticated. Continually setting standards of excellence and forward thinking, Greenbrier was the first course in the state with GPS on its golf carts in 2002, and in 2017 made a significant upgrade to the GPS units!
True to its family form, the Club also renovated the junior olympic size and toddler swimming pools in 2011 to have the largest pool deck in the area. In 2015 a $1.2M golf course irrigation renovation was completed, and our most exciting news to-date is the $800,000 clubhouse renovation we just finished up in 2018. All of these upgrades are assessment free to our members! One other amenity that no other Club in Lexington enjoys is a 19-acre fishing lake that is reserved for Greenbrier members only. Greenbrier Golf & Country Club is, and always has been, the place where Lexington's families come to play!
