The Safeway Open opens the new PGA Tour year? To be held at Silverado resort north course in Napa Northern California.
The course stretches out to 7228 yards par 72. The course features Bermuda greens and fairways and was designed originally by Ben Harman in 1955 and remodelled by Robert Trent Jones in 1967.
The last two years the winning score has been -14 and -15 suggesting the course provides a stern test. Many of the top players will not play this week, instead taking a rest for the US Open the following week.
