Previewing The Course At Augusta National Golf Club Part I of III

Getting Ready For The Masters

Getting Ready For The Masters

The Augusta National Golf Club is the home of the prestigious golf tournament dubbed as “The Masters”. Augusta National as we know it is located in the Augusta, Georgia. And this golf course is one of the most famous courses in the whole world as far as it notoriety, brand and prestige. The course has been photographed millions of times and the fairways and bunkers have been dissected by some of the most skilled club strikers for some seventy years now. Founded by Bobby Jones and designed by Alister MacKenzie on the site of a former indigo plantation, the Augusta National Golf Club opened for play in January 1933. Since 1934 it has played host to the annual Masters Tournament, one of the four major championships in professional golf.
When I decided to preview The Masters, I was confused about which angle I should write from and you all know that I will write about Tiger every chance I get. So the matured writer in me decided to surface just this once. Over the next few paragraphs I will introduce you to the landmarks at Augusta National Golf Club or should I saw the ones that are my favorites. Augusta National is generally regarded as the most revered golf course on the PGA Tour. Since the Masters is held at the same venue every year, fans have the unique opportunity to become familiar with the course, something the other three rotating majors do not afford.
The course is well known for its botanic beauty as well. Because The Masters is held the first weekend following the first full week in April, the flowers of the trees and shrubs bordering the course are in full bloom during the tournament.
Unlike almost every other private or public golf course in the United States, Augusta National has apparently never been rated. During the 1990 Masters Tournament, a team of USGA raters organized by Golf Digest evaluated the course and gave it an unofficial rating of 76.2.
