In just 11 days, we have the pleasure of welcoming back the Frys.com Open PGA TOUR tournament to Silverado. Being the second consecutive year, we expect the tournament to be even better than last year’s success. As many of you have surely heard, Rory McIlroy, one of the top golfers in the world (and #1 for 95 weeks) will be attending the tournament. His formal commitment (in May of this year) was met with stellar excitement and we couldn’t be more thrilled to show him our Napa Valley hospitality. In addition to McIlroy will be many other notable PGA professionals including Justin Rose, Hunter Mahan, Hideki Matsuyama, Brooks Koepka and Daniel Berger.
Basketball all-stars Stephen Curry and Andre Iguodala, of the Golden State Warriors, will kick off the early part of the tournament at the Johnny Miller Pro-Am on October 14th. We’ve seen the magic they bring to the court, so we’re anxious to see their performance on the greens (no pressure, guys!)
But it’s not all about golf at the Frys.com Open. After all, we are in Napa Valley, where food is at the heart of many endeavors. Renowned Chef Thomas Keller, will be continuing his existing pop-up restaurant, Ad Lib, at Silverado through the duration of the Frys.com Open on Oct. 19th. Normally, the restaurant is only open for dinner on select nights of the week, but during the week of Oct. 12-19, Ad Lib will be open nightly for dinner and open for brunch Oct. 15-18. (more info HERE). In addition to his pop-up restaurant, Keller will be hosting a ‘Cuisine by the Green’ near the 18th hole, featuring select coveted items from Ad Hoc + Addendum and Bouchon Bakery.
And wine…there’s always wine. The official wine sponsor of the PGA Tour, William Hill Estates, happens to live right across the street from Silverado. Among other places at the tournament, you’ll find them at the ‘Wine Experience’ at the 17th hole on the North Course. We won’t spoil any surprises but just a hint- this will be a hot spot for those looking for the full Napa Valley experience.
One last tip for now- follow us on our social media accounts for daily contests and prizes during the Frys.com Open Oct. 15-18. We’ll be giving away free golf rounds, merchandise, overnight stays at Silverado, and an array of other valuable prizes!
See you there!
