5 Things You Need to Know About the Safeway Open

5 Things You Need to Know About the Safeway Open

August 05, 2019

The Safeway Open 2019 PGA Tour swings into Silverado Resort and Spa September 23-29, where you can watch the pros play championship golf at our very own Silverado Golf Course. From tee time until well-past sunset, you'll have plenty to do in the beautiful rolling fairways of Napa Valley's prized links. Voted the “Most Fan-First Event” in 2017, this annual PGA tour invites the whole family to indulge in music, food, and kid-friendly fun.

Wake early and secure a spot to watch the pros on the front nine. Most spectators head to the back nine, so why not trade the crowds for a better view? Gates open at 6:30 am but tee time isn't until 7:20 am, so be sure to make a quick stop at Silverado's Market & Bakery first. Then, be in-the-know by grabbing a "Daily Pairing Sheet" when you enter the course. This sheet tells you which players tee off at what time and where, and includes a map of the course. Can't spot a particular golfer? Try looking for his caddie. Caddies' bright colors are indicated on the pairing sheet. If it's an autograph you're after, ask golfers at the practice area. Most players return there upon finishing tournament play.

Refuel at the Safeway Food and Wine Pavilion, set smack in the middle of the course. The 20,000 square foot tent features scrumptious gourmet eats from restaurant greats Thomas Keller, Masaharu Morimoto, and Charlie Palmer as well as a sports bar, wine, spirits, and craft beer stations. Then, shake it out to the likes of Jake Owens, Bad Company, and Rob Thomas. The country, rock, and pop stars play Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings respectively, leaving enough time to take a dip in one of our 10 swimming pools or sip cocktails behind Silverado's mansion on the Terrace Deck overlooking the course. Last but not least, buy your ticket today. It's the best way to avoid the lines and whet your appetite for the Pavilion.
