Cart crews were deceptive
Great golfing day until the end. On our way to the parking lot, we were stopped by the cart crew and informed they were not letting golfers take the carts to the parking lot to unload their bags. I did not think of it because some courses don’t allow carts to the parking lot. They cleaned our clubs without asking us if they could, but I tipped him anyway. It wouldn’t have been a problem if I didn’t see all the carts from the event I was in being allowed to drop their bags at the parking lot. I specifically felt sorry for my buddy who was 80 and had to carry his bag all the way to his car. He just had a stroke and he is still limping on his left leg. I think it was a bad tip day for the cart crew when we went by and decided to make a quick buck by being deceptive. As an FYI, never had this problem before when I’ve played this course.
South might be my favorite
I've played the North 4-5 times now, including that same morning, so what a pleasant surprise the South turned out to be on a hot 36-hole afternoon.
The land was more inspiring than the North. More hills equals more vistas, more interesting lies and all around more fun. To be honest, it's also a little easier than the North, so that gets a few bonus points in my book.
I wish I had played it prior to Johnny Miller's renovation. Whatever he did, it makes sense. Just like the North course, the burger dogs never disappoint.
Silverado resort is a great spot. The South course is a bit more user-friendly track than the North course. South course is a bit more “rolling,” so uphill, downhill and sidehill lies are very common. Conditions were good, staff is friendly and great amenities on property and in surrounding area.
Great course, needs to improve resources for golfers
You're paying for playing in Napa County, but one would think that for that kind of money, there would be more consistent resources for golfers to play well in the 21st century. You would think a resort course would have updated resources, but here's what I encountered: 1) The course map they hand out shows bunkers on #2, #9, #10, #13, #16, & #18 that don't exist; 2) the green layout on the course map are impossible to read and you have no idea whether you're hitting into a flat green or a three-tier green 3) The online course fly-over videos show the same information in the course map; 4) The android app has removed the bunkers, but the descriptions still mention them, and they really don't provide a lot of info; 5) the golf carts don't provide GPS yardage info.
Club selection off the tee and into the greens was challenging. When I did hit greens I was often above the hole with slippery downhill putts because there are a lot of multi-tiered greens from left to right.
The course was in great condition, which it should be for $149 and for the PGA Tour to stop here. The pace of play was great and the amenities around the course were great. The staff was incredibly friendly and provided helpful advice while I was warming up about several tricky holes.
