Choosing the right location—particularly a special one—can be the difference between an “OK” event and an event that all participants remember for a long time to come. Ensure your company is remembered by holding your event at the right spot.

Golf courses are perfect venues, but choosing which of the many Bay Area resorts can take time and research. One thing to consider is the breadth of amenities available, not to mention dining options, meeting space, quality of suites and living areas, and other crucial factors to ensure maximum enjoyment.

At the stylish Silverado Resort—a Napa Valley landmark for over 140 years—the rolling, vineyardcovered scenery matches with incomparable facilities to make an ideal location. The resort boasts two championship golf courses, three innovative dining options, the area’s largest luxury spa and a host of recreational activities. A stately main mansion is the gateway to Silverado’s 280 private cottage rooms and suites, which are clustered about garden courtyards, tranquil swimming pools and manicured fairways. Inspired by the simple elegance of wine country living, all rooms feature classic design and custom furnishings.

Guests may choose their own lodging configuration, ranging from oversized king rooms to one-, two-, and three-bedroom suites that all offer full kitchens and dining rooms. In addition, each suite has a wood-burning fireplace and opens to a private patio or balcony.

Set upon 360 scenic acres at the heart of Silverado Resort are two 18-hole, par-72 golf courses. The oak-shaded fairways are renowned for their Napa Valley vistas; a driving range, renovated clubhouse, pro shop and friendly staff of professionals serve golfers at all skill levels. Designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., the prestigious courses have hosted several PGA Mens’ Tour and Champions’ Tour events. Guests who prefer rackets to clubs will find 17 tennis courts, and athletes also enjoy a network of landscaped jogging trails. Ten swimming pools dot the resort grounds, affording both lap and lounging opportunities.

For a more serene experience, The Spa at Silverado merges bliss and well-being. Surrounded by sun-splashed garden courtyards, the 16,000 square-foot luxury facility provides high-tech fitness, pampering salon and spa services. An extensive menu features more than 30 wellness workouts plus traditional and contemporary spa treatments.

Centrally located in the Napa Valley, Silverado is an ideal base from which to discover the region’s cultural, recreational and culinary assets. Float above Napa Valley’s verdant hills in a hot air balloon. Attend cooking demonstrations at the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone. Spend an afternoon touring vineyards by bicycle, visiting local art galleries or gliding along on a scenic Napa River cruise.

Interestingly, Silverado has conducted a $3.5 million renovation to both of its courses, with a significant installation of a new irrigation system that allows for a 30-percent reduction in water consumption—in addition to the use of all-natural landscaping products, this sets a positive example for environmental responsibility at the resort. Bill Hamilton, grounds superintendent at Silverado, says “My goal is to keep Silverado’s courses in pristine playing condition… and finding more resourceful and ecologically responsible ways to do that is always a top priority.”

Setting a standard, ecologically, and maintaining a standard of high quality and exquisite recreational experience, Silverado is an ideal attraction. Bringing your group to this famed Napa Valley resort—and, surrounding them with the amenities both within and around Silverado —will be an instant success.

The Bay Area is full of sights and attractions. It can be a daunting task trying to decide where to go. Let the kind and knowledgable staff at Silverado help you plan your Napa Valley events. The sky is, truly, the limit!
