For most of us wanna-be (but never gonna be) tour pros, playing the courses that the PGA Tour plays is a powerful draw. One place where you can do that this fall is at CordeValle, which has just hosted the Frys.com Open.

Now that the tournament has ended, golfers can take advantage of CordeValle’s Ultimate Golf Package, which runs through the end of the year. The package provides each golfer with a PGA Tour-like playing experience, as well as access to the facilities and amenities at CordeValle in either a one-night deal or for multiple nights and rounds.

The package includes a choice of accommodations, daily continental breakfast, unlimited play each day of your stay with cart, access to the practice facility and a wine tasting at the on-site Clos LaChance Winery.

During part of November, the golf course will be recovering from its annual turfgrass enrichment and aerification, so guests staying on the Ultimate Golf Package wil receive a special reduced rate. Until Nov. 11, rates start at $469 per person, and after that date will start at $359 per person (caddie fees, resort fees, tax and gratuities are additional).

CordeValle has established itself as Silicon Valley's home to championship golf, as the resort has hosted the prestigious PGA Cup as well as its annual stop on the PGA Tour. Later this fall, CordeValle welcomes back the annual Gifford Invitational, a premier men's collegiate event, and will host the 2013 USGA Senior Women's Amateur Championship.

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. 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.
