White Sulphur SpringsWest Virginia. Like neighboring Lewisburg, it's known mainly for its status as a luxury resort town, with lots of leisurely activities and the impressive five-star Greenbrier Resort. White Sulphur Springs was incorporated in 1909, and the large clear spring that inspired its name is now housed in a domed spring house on the grounds of the Greenbrier. The Civil War battle of Dry Creek was fought here in 1862.

phone: +1 304-536-1884address: One Montague DriveThe first golf course in the USA, established in 1884. 9 holes, par 37. Games are played today in the same way as when the course was first opened; with replica 19th century long nose hickory shafted clubs made in St Andrews, Scotland, and "guttie" balls hit from sand tees. Many guests choose not only to play 1884 style, but to dress 1884 style as well; knicker rentals are available for $15. In keeping with the traditional spirit, players walk the course rather than using carts, carry only four clubs (no bag), and must avoid the roaming flocks of sheep. Complimentary gingersnaps and lemonade are available after your game.
