Almost as soon as reigning British Open Champion Ernie Els and the rest of the PGA Tour stars drop their final putts at CordeValle in the Frys.com Open (Oct. 11-14), resort guests can "play like the pros" on the Robert Trent Jones Jr.-designed golf course, with the Ultimate Golf Package being the ideal way to experience the same tournament test the pros faced.

"Our guests always enjoy playing and visualizing the same shots that the tour professionals have just faced in tournament competition," said Nick Bailey, Director of Golf at CordeValle. "It's a great way to make a personal connection to the history and tradition that CordeValle has enjoyed with the best players in the world."
CordeValle has established itself as Silicon Valley's home to championship golf competition. Not only does the PGA Tour return each fall - with a field that has included major champions like Tiger Woods, Davis Love III, John Daly and Els - CordeValle hosted the prestigious PGA Cup, an international competition matching a team of club professionals from the USA against a team from Great Britain & Ireland in 2011. Later this fall, CordeValle welcomes back the annual Gifford Invitational, a premier men's collegiate event and is looking forward to hosting a national championship, the 2013 USGA Senior Women's Amateur Championship.
A secluded destination in San Martin, Calif., CordeValle offers country club charm, with 45 expansive rooms that create a secluded sanctuary, designed into the harmony of the natural mountainside landscape, overlooking the golf course and lush, rolling hills.
Tennis, swimming and the spa are also available, as is a taste of California's famed wine country, with an on-site winery and vineyard right on property. Dining options include Il Vigneto's Italian cuisine with contemporary California flair, the Lion's Peak Grill, with relaxing indoor and outdoor patio seating, and the popular One Iron Bar.
