The Open was first staged in 2007 as the Fry's Electronics Open at Grayhawk Golf Club's Raptor Course in Scottsdale, Arizona. It adopted its current name in 2008, and moved to California in 2010, at CordeValle Golf Club in San Martin. In October 2014 (2015 season), the tournament moved to the North course of Silverado Country Club in Napa.[1]

The purse was $5 million for its first seven years and was raised to $6 million for the 2015 season.

The inaugural event was won by Canadian Mike Weir by one stroke over Mark Hensby. In 2008 the event was won by Cameron Beckman on the second playoff hole, when he parred it and Kevin Sutherland bogeyed it. In 2009, Troy Matteson set a PGA Tour 36-hole record by shooting 61-61=122 in the second and third rounds, and then won the tournament in a three-man playoff against Rickie Fowler and Jamie Lovemark.

Other notable players who have participated in the tournament include Ernie Els, David Duval, and Tiger Woods. Woods committed to play in the 2011 tournament as a condition for being selected by Fred Couples as one of two captain's pick for the United States team in the 2011 Presidents Cup, which took place in mid-November 2011.

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. It was renamed Anheuser-Busch Golf Classic in 1977 and moved east to Virginia in 1981, played at Kingsmill in Williamsburg through 2002.
