A History Rich in Memory & Tradition

Fabled Home of the Bruno's Memorial Classic
1992-2005

 

1991
Greystone Golf & Country Club founded by Daniel Corporation

On September 29, 1991, the first tee shots were played at Greystone.  The membership was made up of 150 Charter Members and the Course was set for the Club.

 

1992
First Bruno's Memorial Classic

In 1992, George Archer won the inaugural playing of what would eventually become the Regions Charity Classic, named by Sports Illustrated as the best run tournament on the Champions Tour and rated the #1 Stop on the Champions Tour.

 
 

 

1998
Club continues to grow

The Club was quickly approaching 600 equity members, the development was nearing capacity, and rumors were running hot about a "Second 18 Holes" at Greystone.  In October of 1998, the membership approved a proposal to build a second course and hired Rees Jones to design our second Championship course.

 

2000
The Legacy Course is founded

Exactly nine years after the first tee shot was played at the Founders Course, Rees Jones would hit the first tee shot at the Legacy Course.  On September 29, 2000, Greystone Golf & Country Club became the first and only 36-hole equity club in the state of Alabama.  Two months later, the Legacy Clubhouse would open to the same rave reviews.

 
 

 

2001
Expansion to amenities

The new Champions Pool opened to the membership on Saturday, May 26, 2001.  The tennis facility also hosted its grand opening that month. 

 

2004
Club continues to flourish

The Club opened a Fitness Center and added a Toddler Pool to the Aquatics Center - greatly enhancing the golf, swim and tennis programs already in place at Greystone.  The Greystone Gators Swim Team had an undefeated season in 2004 and the Greystone Tennis Team proudly claimed the title of State Champions.

 
 

2008

2011
20th Anniversary of the Club

The Grand Opening of the TaylorMade Performance Lab at Greystone brings critical acclaim and world-class golfers to the Stone.  The Facilities Master Plan is created as the wheels move forward with future plans for improvement and expansion to the Club.  In September 2011, the 20th Anniversary of the Club is celebrated. 

 
 

2012 – Addition of Two Tennis Hard Courts & Walking Path

In the summer of 2011, the Swim, Tennis & Fitness Committee led the tennis advocates of Greystone in a fundraiser for two additional hard courts to the Tennis Complex.  Through the tremendous support of the membership, the project was completed in late 2012 and a walking path was paved surrounded by beautiful landscaping leading to the Founders Clubhouse patio.  A celebratory ceremony was held to unveil the two new courts and walking path and the lasting tributes of bricks and pavers displaying the names of Greystone’s honorary families.  

2013 – Sec Women’s Championship Comes to Greystone

Greystone welcomes Golf Fans from the SEC region to converge and enjoy the spirit of competition and camaraderie while viewing the showcase of the SEC Women’s Golf Championship in April 2013 through 2016.  The Founders Course hosted the event in 2013 & 2014.  The Legacy Course awaits the 14 SEC teams in 2015 & 2016.  We are excited to share in the history of this prestigious event and for the chance to witness each year as the tournament brings forth its well-deserving champion.   
 
 

2013 – Founders Patio, Interior Remodel & Men's Lounge Addition

The Facilities Master Plan brought forth three exciting additions to the Founders Clubhouse.  First, the patio located at the rear of the clubhouse overlooking signature hole 18.  The multi-use patio is for the enjoyment of Members and their guests, brides and grooms, their families and friends, and tournament players and spectators.  The second project created a tasteful modernization and enhanced the Founders Clubhouse foyer, restrooms, Main Dining Room and Trophy Room. Third, KFP Inc. Construction worked diligently to renovate the Founders Men's Locker Room and create a Men's Lounge with televisions and pub style tables.
 

2014 - Greystone Golf & Country Club announced as Home of the Regions Tradition 

The Champions Tour will return to the Founders Course in 2016, 2017, and 2018!  With the return of the Regions Tradition combined with our Strategic Plan to become a Club of Excellence, the membership approved funding three building projects that will enhance and benefit the Club long-term:
1) Adding a Golf Operations Center & Plaza at Founders.
2) Renovating the Lower Level of the Founders Clubhouse adding a state-of-the-art Fitness Center, Childcare Facility, contemporary kitchen and bar area, modernized Women’s Locker Room, and more.
3) Adding a Golf Performance Center at Legacy.
The projects will begin in Spring 2014 with a completion date of Spring 2016.  In addition to these three projects, the Founders Course will receive modifications by the Champions Tour that will begin in July 2014.
