Read 0 reviews of Augusta National Golf Club
Sculptured out of arable farmlands, and boasting names like ‘Amen Corner’, Sarazen Bridge and Pink Dogwood, the Augusta National is a spectacular golf course and home to the first Major tournament of each year, the US Masters.
The fairways and greens are surrounded by pine and flowering magnolia trees that date back to the dawn of the event, and the botanical theme continues with each hole being named after a shrub or tree. An estimated 80 000 plants have been added to the Augusta over time, making it a veritable paradise, but also one of the most difficult golf courses in the world.
Although it seems serene, the Augusta National is a real test for the best. The likes of Greg Norman, Ernie Els and Colin Montgomerie have yet to tame the beast, but there are some who have made it their very own playground. Tiger Woods, Seve Ballesteros, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player to name but a few.
When all is said and done, Augusta National Golf Club, is the perfect venue for one of the most outstanding events on the golfing calendar.
