Golfers can 'Play Like the Pros' at CordeValle this Fall
(SAN MARTIN, Calif.) - Almost as soon as Tiger Woods, defending champion Rocco Mediate and the rest of the PGA Tour stars drop their final putts at CordeValle in October’s Frys.com Open (Oct. 3-9), a special “Play Like The Pros” package will debut, allowing resort guests to tee it up under same tournament conditions the pros experienced.
Available Mondays through Thursdays from October 10 through November 3, the “Play Like The Pros” package provides each golfer with a superb playing experience, as well as access to the facilities and amenities at CordeValle, a Rosewood Resort. The package may be reserved as a one-night stay, including18 holes of golf, or for multiple nights and rounds. Included are:
* Choice of luxury accommodations
* Golf with cart
* Forecaddie (one per group)
* Continental breakfast
“When the golf course is in tournament conditions, our guests really enjoy playing and visualizing the same shots that the professionals face,” said Michael Marion, 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.”
Home to an award-winning Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed golf course, CordeValle has established itself as Silicon Valley’s home to championship golf competition. Not only does the PGA Tour return this fall – with a field that includes major champions like Woods, David Duval, Lee Janzen and Jerry Kelly – CordeValle will host the prestigious PGA Cup, an international competition matching a team of club professionals from the USA against a team from Great Britain and Ireland from Sept. 16-18. And later this fall, CordeValle will welcome back the annual Gifford Invitational, a premier men’s collegiate event.
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.
