Silverado’s North Course hosted an annual event on the PGA Tour from 1968 through 1980, the first nine editions as the Kaiser International Open Invitational. In 1977, that event was renamed the Anheuser-Busch Golf Classic and in 1981 it moved east to Kingsmill in Williamsburg, Virginia, where it was played through 2002.
The Frys.com Open began as a PGA Tour Fall Series event, from 2007 through 2012. Starting in October 2013, when the PGA Tour changed its “year” to begin in October, rather than January, the tournament became the opening event of the PGA Tour season, and FedEx Cup points were awarded to players.
In 2013, tournament organizers had a long-term goal to stage the event at The Institute Golf Course in Morgan Hill, California, a course owned by John Fry when facilities were completed there. That was expected in 2016 or 2017, but did not happen because of the change of sponsorship to Safeway.
The Safeway Open is a professional golf tournament, part of the PGA Tour. It was first staged in 2007 as the Fry’s Electronics Open at Grayhawk Golf Club’s Raptor Course in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was renamed to the Frys.com Open in 2008, and moved to California in 2010, at CordeValle Golf Club in San Martin. In October 2014, part of the PGA Tour’s 2015 season, the tournament moved to the North course of Silverado Country Club in Napa. The purse was $5 million for the tournament’s first seven years and was raised to $6 million for the 2015 season.

PRESIDENTS CUP MATCH PLAY HISTORY SEPTEMBER 28 – OCTOBER 1
The Presidents Cup is a series of men’s golf matches between a team representing the United States and an International Team representing the rest of the world minus Europe. Europe competes against the United States in a similar but considerably older event, the Ryder Cup.
The Presidents Cup has been held biennially since 1994. Initially it was held in even numbered years, with the Ryder Cup being held in odd numbered years. However, the cancellation of the 2001 Ryder Cup due to the September 11 attacks pushed both tournaments back a year, and the Presidents Cup is now held in odd numbered years. It is hosted alternately in the United States and in countries represented by the International Team.
The scoring system of the event is match play. The format is drawn from the Ryder Cup and consists of 12 players per side. Each team has a non-playing captain, usually a highly respected golf figure, who is responsible for choosing the pairs in the doubles events, which consist of both alternate shot and best ball formats (also known as “foursome” and “fourball” matches respectively). Each match, whether it be a doubles or singles match, is worth one point with a half-point awarded to each team in the event of a halved match.
There have been frequent small changes to the format, although the final day has always consisted of 12 singles matches. The contest was extended from 3 days to 4 in 2000. In 2015 there were a total of 9 foursome doubles matches, 9 fourball doubles matches and 12 singles matches. With a total of 30 points, a team needed to get 15.5 points to win the Cup
