The billionaire owner of The Greenbrier resort says Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus and Lee Trevino will design a nearby mountaintop golf course.

Jim Justice announced plans for the new golf course, ski slopes and housing development in a news release Monday.

The release says the golf resort will break ground within 30 days and is expected to open in fall 2016. Justice says he hopes to attract the U.S. Open to the course someday.

The Greenbrier currently hosts The Greenbrier Classic, a PGA Tour event coming up over the July 4 weekend.

The resort also hosts the New Orleans Saints football training camp part-time.

Justice is running for West Virginia governor as a Democrat. The primary election is in May 2016, followed by the general election that November.
