Silverado Resort and Spa, Calif.

Tucked in the rolling hills of the Napa Valley, synonymous as the source of California’s benchmark wines, Silverado, acquired by Johnny Miller and his partners in 2010, has been buffed and tweaked for the better. Bordered by burly oaks and meandering creeks, the North Course, redesigned by Miller and stretched to 7,171 yards, is a championship-caliber test. The South Course, the first solo design by Robert Trent Jones Jr. (1965), occupies hillier terrain and calls for all the shots. Accommodations are in cottage suites tucked in landscaped courtyards, with a plethora of activities (balloon rides, winery tours, picnic lunches, etc.) available.
