Posted: Updated:
America's resort is celebrating an important birthday.
The Greenbrier Resort's famous golf course, the Old White TPC turned 100 years old today.
To commemorate the event Jim Justice, Owner of The Greenbrier, and Jeff Kmiec, the resort's President along with several other representatives of the resort gathered Saturday to remember the course's long history.
Guests were in attendance to watch as Justice hit the ceremonial first ball from the first tee.
Even recent Masters winner Bubba Watson made a surprise appearance.

"Just think of what's gone on this hallowed ground that this over the last 100 years of our country. And everything that's happened and all the fabulous players and dignitaries that have been here. This is really history," said Justice.
"You know everything that they're doing here is family oriented but brings sports to West Virginia. Jim is big on bringing sports back and bringing the football team here, the Saints, who I grew up watching because that's the closest one to my house in Pensacola... so for that it's pretty good," said Watson.

Justice says he was surprised but happy to see Watson, who will be returning again in the Summer for the Greenbrier Classic.
