Here’s how to take a romantic golf getaway to Silverado for less than $3K

If watching this week’s Safeway Open has you yearning to plan a golf trip to California’s wine country, the fall is a spectacular time to do it, when average temperatures remain in the mid-60s through November.

Silverado Resort has two golf courses onsite, and its location in the heart of Napa (hello, Cabernet!) makes it a super-appealing destination for a couples’ golf getaway. Here’s how to book your November weekend for less than $3K.

AIRFARE: ~$500

Unless you fly private into Napa’s local airstrip, there’s really no way to get super-close to wine country on a plane. SFO, about an hour south of Napa (barring traffic), is likely your best bet, though you can also fly into Sacramento or Oakland, if that’s preferable.

Flights for a November weekend from LAX can be purchased for as little as $107 each (price via Kayak), while flights from Chicago, the Northeast and the Southeast range from about $250 to $290 apiece.

Total airfare: ~$500 for two tickets


A midsize car is all you need for a two-person weekend excursion, and Budget offers a Hyundai Elantra or similar for $161 (price via Kayak). Book it, Danno!


The Silverado Resort & Spa offers a pretty cool package if you really want to go golf-nuts during your stay. The Golfer’s Dream Package includes lodging and 18 holes of golf for you and your significant other each day during your stay, plus free golf after 2 p.m. on your arrival day, and unlimited use of the practice facility, range balls, and club storage. For the weekend I checked in November, that rate starts at $587/night.

If you want a more a la carte experience, you can get a good price on Expedia: $294/night at Silverado, plus a $25 resort fee, for a total of $957 for a three-night stay.

TOTAL SPEND: $661 + $957 = $1,618

The Silverado Resort offers 340 rooms and suites.


Golf at Silverado is not cheap, but alas, premium experiences rarely are. The North Course (which hosts the Tour) will set you back $189 per person, while the South is $159 per person. If you opt to visit late in November, the price drops pretty significantly, and you can save a couple hundred dollars between two people over two rounds.

TOTAL SPEND: $1,618 + $696 = $2,314

Arrival dinner: $150

Golf course lunch 1: $50

Day 2 dinner: $150

Golf course lunch 2: $50

Day 3 dinner: $150

Miscellaneous breakfasts, snacks: $100
