The Original 18
In October 1953, the first heavy equipment moved onto the grounds to start construction on the 18 hole course on approximately 160 acres under the supervision of Ben Harmon, who designed the course layout to course to satisfy the average golfer but long enough to test the abilities of the better golfer. In May 1955, the Silverado Golf Course opened for play with Gene Littler, Johnny Dawson, Joe Spinola, and Tony Celak in the first foursome to play on the course.
Robert Trent Jones, Jr.
In 1966, the original 18-hole course was redesigned into two 18-hole courses with the young Robert Trent Jones, Jr. providing the expertise. The official opening of the Silverado Country Club & Resort was in April 1967.
In November of 2010, the North Course was renovated by World Golf Hall of Famer and new resort owner, Johnny Miller. The renovation included a complete bunker renovation, the addition of 21 new tees (both championship and forward) and the beginning of a turf renovation program on the fairways of the North Course.
Wine Tasting & Dinner
After golf, we will travel up the road to the beautiful Luna Vineyards for a wine tasting and buffet dinner. Wine tasting & dinner will include both Luna wines and Arnold Palmer signature wines. Wine will be available for purchase at a special discounted rate just for us.
Luna has passion for making great wines, made truly great by the exceptional vineyard sites, their natural fermentation methods, and a minimum of intervention in the cellar. It’s all contributed to the critical acclaim they continue to receive for their artisanal family of wines. And to years of enjoyment—past, present, future.
In 2003, Palmer and Luna Vineyards founder Mike Moone, golf buddies who share a long-standing friendship, chose to develop Arnold Palmer Wines. And while the Arnold Palmer Wines combine high-quality, super premium wines with a legendary name and global icon, they are offered at an honest, approachable price, reflecting Palmer’s personality and regular-guy persona.
