NCGA Golf;Summer2011, Vol. 31 Issue 3, p24
The article focuses on the involvement of golf legend Johnny Miller to the Silverado resort in Napa County, California. Miller states that being a part-owner of the property is a dream come true for him since Silverado is a world-class place with 36 holes and is a rare opportunity because it cannot be duplicated in the area. Also, the resort is a California's landmark for more than 140 years and spreads out 1,200 acres with two championship golf courses, 10 swimming pools, and 16 tennis courts.
