This picture shows me teeing off at the 1st hole at the Emerald Golf Course in Greenbrier in January,(notice the colors).

In 1989 this lovely tract was designed by world-renowned golf architect, Rees Jones. The year The Emerald was opened it was named one of the top 50 new courses in the South by Golf Weekly. 

In addition to a championship golf course Emerald has a great practice range so you can loosen up before you play. Emerald also has Har-Tru tennis courts and one of the areas finest swimming pools.

 From 1990 to 2000, The Curtis Strange Shrine Classic was held at the Emerald. Just a few of the notable golfers that played in the fundraiser were, Arnold Palmer, Jay Haas, Tom Kite, Fred Couples, Nancy Lopez, Stewart Cink, and Fuzzy Zeller.

Tiger Woods played the Emerld Golf course in 2000.

Tiger Woods  played the last year the fundraiser. He shot a little 63 the first time he saw the course.

 From the back 2 tee boxes Greenbrier is long, but the large soft greens are receptive to longer approach shots and they . Make sure to keep it in the fairway as the rough has an abundance of trees making recovery shots very difficult. Number 18 is the signature hole, and believe me its all you want and then some. Into the wind it is a long hole, and even the power players will be hitting a long iron for their second shots. Left of the fairway is OB and water runs all the way down the right side. Number 5 is one of my favorite holes. It is a par 5 and although I have never hit the green in two, I try every time I play. A double dogleg makes it a 3 shot hole for all but the best golfers. Play smart and you should get your par. A very challenging golf course to play, just make sure you keep it in the fairway.

Pay off your loan quicker. Check out this calculator

Here's how it works: You input your original mortgage balance, the original term and interest rate. Then figure out how many month's of payments you've already made. Finally, decide how soon you'd like to have your mortgage paid off. For example, a couple in their 40's may decide that they'd like to pay off the 30-year loan they took out last year in 20 years. They input the particulars of their current loan, put in a new term of 20 years, and the Early Payoff Calculator determines how much extra they need to pay each month to make that happen.
