Silverado Resort & Spa (North course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1955

Silverado Resort & Spa (North course): Set among the gently rolling hills of Napa Valley's wine country, Silverado comprises two excellent, parkland style, championship courses - the North and South. Both make use of occasional elevation changes, although they mainly occupy flatter terrain where there is a pleasant mix of more open and at other times distinctly more tree-lined holes. Houses unobtrusively flank one or two of the holes, although not to obscure the picturesque views onto the surrounding Napa Valley hills.

The North course's two out-and-back nine-hole loops, much utltised by the PGA Tour, present several tightish holes, where your tee shots will need to safely find the fairways if you are to score well. The rough beyond the fairways is not overly penal, but many varieties of trees may block your line to the green if tee shots are hit too far offline. Stylish though relatively shallow bunkering threatens on several holes, especially around the greens, while your course management and shot-making will need to factor-in ponds protecting the par-3 11th and par-3 15th holes.

With one or two vineyards to be glimpsed along the way, the North course at Silverado provides a pleasant parkland setting in which to enjoy a relaxed round of golf. On a layout where many of the game's greatest golfing legends scooped the prizes in the 1970s, you can set your own level of difficulty, easier-going from the front tees, considerably more "interesting" from the tips.

Did you know?

Silverado has hosted many top level golf events, not least the PGA Tour's Kaiser International/Anheuser-Busch Classic between 1968 and 1980, the Champion's Tour Transamerica tournament (1989 - 2002), and more recently the PGA Tour's Safeway Open. The PGA Tour are generally hosted on the North course, the Champions Tour on the South course. (See our Tournaments section > by venue > Silverado).

Standing at the centre of the Silverado Resort is the original stately, white-pillared mansion built in the early 1870s and originally home to General John Franklin Miller. Born in 1831, Miller was a lawyer, businessman, and a general in the Union Army during the American Civil War. He represented California in the United States Senate from 1881 until his death in 1886.

Silverado is a hybrid Spanish-English word, formerly used to indicate a place where silver is found, a similar concept to El Dorado, which came to mean any place where gold, jewels and great wealth could be rapidly acquired.
