FATHERLY ADVICE FROM THE FAIRMONT SONOMA MISSION INN
GIVE DAD A VACATION EXPERIENCE HE'LL NEVER FORGET
SONOMA VALLEY, JUNE 2012 - This Father's Day, give the special man in your life something he'll never forget - the vacation, dining, golf, or spa experience of a lifetime. To acknowledge your main man, the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa has created a number of guy-geared getaways and activities guaranteed to please dads, uncles, grandfathers, or any other father figure who holds a special place in your heart.
If dad's a die-hard duffer, tee up an ultimate golf getaway for him at The Sonoma Golf Club, The Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa's Wine Country experience includes golf at the prestigious Sonoma Golf Club. Reserved exclusively for members and guests of the resort, the course is located less than one mile from the Inn; the 177-acre course has a long standing reputation as one of Northern California's finest golf courses. Designed under the auspices of Sonoma Mission Inn in 1928 by Sam Whiting and Willie Watson, architects of San Francisco's prestigious Olympic Club Lake Course, the illustrious course is also the former home of the Charles Schwab Cup Championship. Nestled at the foot of the Sonoma Mountain Range and secluded by bordering vineyards, the 18-hole golf course stretches 7,087 yards through native oaks and redwoods. Golf packages start from $449 based upon double occupancy and subject to applicable taxes.
If your guy is a wine enthusiast – spend some (quality) time at the Big 3 Wine Bar. Pouring only Sonoma Valley designate wines, the unique wine venue, open daily, provides both locals and guests the opportunity to sip the very best of the Sonoma Valley in one locale. Tastes, flights and bottles from over 60 neighboring wineries available for both tastes and purchase.
If your number one man needs to unwind, we suggest a day at the Spa - Dads can choose from a number of masculine spa services at the handsome 40,000 square foot facility. Offerings include a men's facial, a deep-cleansing and soothing exfoliation, followed by a restful massage of the face, scalp and shoulders fulfilling the refreshing, traditional barber experience without the shave, (60 minutes for $159), or the ever-popular sports massage, (60 minutes for $169).
Leaving the grilling to us………….dote on your man with an unparalleled dinner in the Inn's signature dining room, Santé.
