Golf Course Review Silverado Resort & Spa NORTH COURSE Napa California
Reviewed by: BSF, Novato, CA
Played in a tournament on 6/1. Beautiful sunny day with a Pace of Play (PoP) of 5+ hours. Very traditional course with no tricked-up holes, very little water and only slight elevation changes. Sounds a bit boring, but it’s not. The placement of trees/bunkers, the rough & smallish, undulating greens make it interesting & a very good test of golf.
After the copious amounts of rain this winter/spring, the course is in great shape: Very green & lush. Being a high-end resort course, you expect stellar conditions & this course delivers. Fairways, rough, bunkers, tee boxes & greens are all in great to excellent condition. The rough was the biggest surprise. It is fairly short & seems benign, but turned out to be very penal. Super thick & snarly, it would just grab your club & send the ball in all kinds of directions & much shorter than you intended. The greens firmed up as the day progressed & were rolling medium/Fast and true.
The service was great from check-in to the end & the Cart-person was out all round.
On a side note – they have the Hot Dog Bill’s famous “BurgerDog” at the snack shack between Holes 7 & 8.
Currently, it is the only other place besides Olympic Club you can get one. Simple, yet delicious! Great course & definitely in prime shape right now.
