Safeway Open Winning Formula

Silverado Country Club’s North Course is a Par 72 that can stretch to over 7,200 yards from the back pegs. The layout sprawls across 360 acres and features several water crossings, elevation changes and routing through oak, pine and redwood trees.

Several holes are doglegged requiring an ability to shape the ball both ways. A variety of approach shots will be required to find the green complexes. It is a solid test of golf.
