Each year, the Professional Golfers Association – PGA, holds four major championships, the first of which is the Masters Tournament, known also as The Masters. The Masters is unique compared to the other PGA championship tournaments in that is it held in the same location every year at the Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. Also different about The Masters is that it is an invitational event and as such, the size of the field is smaller and adds a unique, competetive dynamic to the tournament. Some of the biggest names in golf have won the masters including Arnold Palmer, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.
One of the reasons the PGA has held one of their major championships at this same location each year is because of the quality of the course. The Augusta National Golf Club is rightfully one of the world’s most famous golf course and club and ranked as the number one golf club by Golfweek Magazine in 2011. Because the location of the course was originally a nursery, each of the challenging holes are named after a shrub or tree native to the area and adds a charming appeal to the venue. Much of the appeal of the Augusta National Golf Club comes from the gorgeous landscaping and the many natural features, adding both beauty and challenges to the game. For instance, The Eisenhower Tree, located near the 17th hole is a loblolly pine, named after the US President who happened to hit the tree so often that he wanted it cut down. Crossing a pond at the 15th hole is the beautiful Sarazen Bridge, separating the green from the fairway.
The location as well as the time of the year of The Masters is such that it makes for a perfect springtime experience. In 2017, the 81st tournament will take place over the weekend of the 6th-9th of April. As such, the weather is excellent and perfect for a weekend of watching PGA golf. With temperatures in the 70’s and 80’s during the day and as low as the 50’s during the evening, it’s important to bring light clothes, hats and sunscreen as well as warmer clothes for the evenings. In Augusta, there are lots of lodging accommodations from major hotel brands, however, many of the residents in the area rent out their homes during The Masters and provide comfortable, unique places to stay during your visit. And while your time in Augusta will be focused on golf, you can be confident that your time where will be an all-around memorable experience.
