“Wonderful Layouts, Differing Conditions, Go North If You Can”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

Both the North and South courses are well worth playing. Both provide broad vistas, mature trees, challenging golf and helpful staff. Most would say that the North course is the one to prefer and that is quite right, but the South course has much to offer. Unfortunately, the condition of the courses is not equal. The South course seems like the poor sister, particularly as to the condition of the bunkers. Greenside bunkers had little/no sand, were seldom raked and offered hardpan like conditions on many holes. Just not good. Otherwise, things were much better, though perhaps just a bit below the conditions on the North. So, go North if you can, but you'll have a good day either way.

“Great place for an early July 4th celebration”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

Only July 3rd, Silverado hosts Napa's Independence Day celebration with great fireworks. It is an amazing display for a country club to host the activities modest size town.

“Golf could have been great but couldn't find out”
Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Traveling with groups to Napa usually entails two things, great food and great wine. As the only golfer in the group and to avoid impacting everyone else's day, jumping out ahead of the first tee time at 6:30-6:45am and playing in 2.5 hours is the only way to play ( something done at many courses ).

The response I get from the pro shop is the most unhelpful, unwilling to work with, and disrespectful response I have ever dealt with. This is a destination. It isn't a place you can just try again next week. Moreover, challenging them on that stance should never lead to them hanging up on you, ever. Having played several world class courses this year, I would love to be able compare them in this review, but bad customer service has stopped that.

“Excellent food, service, room”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

I am here with a group, and I understand that not every unit has been updated, but my unit is just lovely, perfect in terms of new furnishings, spotless, good bed+linen scene. We ate the Grille after arriving hungry and I had dungenes crab salad (out of season) and it was delicious- and I am from crab-country and have sent back more than my share of crab. Room service is quick for little things like toothbrushes, and this am, ordered breakfast delivered and it was a choice that is hard to deliver hot and properly prepAred (eggs Benedict) and everything was perfect. I do NOT like that there isn't a little on-property store for medicine, magazines, toiletries. Also. There is no mini-bar, or even vending machine so if you want a bottle of water, it's room service and that is annoying. I sound like a baby, but everything else was so perfect, I want to let mgmt know what this picky traveler loved and didn't love. Overall though, very nice touches. Cheese and fruit tray came garnished with lavender and rosemary, and was quite artful. Nice job. staff very friendly.

“Resort Destination”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

Liked: Huge plantation style resort, rented bikes to ride around the property, delicious tea/coffee/lemon water in the lobby daily, friendly staff, and great location.
Disliked: The pool area is looking a little run down and wasn't picked up (towels, drink cups everywhere). Also, the spa in the pool area had green water and stains so we didn't get in. Some of the apartments are not re-finished.
