Augusta National Golf Club

Augusta National Golf Club is the perennial home of the Masters, professional golf's fourth Major Championship, but probably the most coveted of all trophies. Each golf hole is named after a southern bloom and the course, which is closed for 4 months each year, is so meticulously maintained that it becomes a visual explosion of colour, times specifically to blossom during the Masters.

Augusta National Golf Club is the perennial home of The Masters, Professional Golf's Fourth Major Championship, but probably the most coveted of all Trophies. The Green Jacket winner receives a lifetime exemption to compete every year.

Considered among golf lovers world-wide as the Ultimate Destination because it is the only Major to play the same course annually - The US Open, The British Open and The PGA Championship rotate their location each year. Also, Augusta National is an extremely private golf club, adding to its mystique. Similar to other older established and conservative clubs Augusta National Golf Club's policies restrict uninvited guest play, and again, this fuels the desire to attend of the world's golfing masses.

ANGC was constructed in early 1930's as the dream-child of Bobby Jones, undoubtedly the most accomplished amateur golfer in history. Each golf hole is named after a Southern bloom and the course, which is closed for 4 months each year, is so meticulously maintained that it becomes a visual explosion of colour, times specifically to blossom during The Masters.

Playing Tips

1
Par 4, Length 435m

A slight dogleg right with the yawning bunker a 300 yard carry from the Masters tee. Drives to the left may catch the trees. The hole plays uphill.

2
Par 5, Length 575m

A dogleg left which may be reachable in two. Large, deep greenside bunkers take special attention on the second shot.

3
Par 4, Length 350m

A classic short par 4. Golfers attempt to hit short of the four fairway bunkers resulting in a full club to the green where it is better to be long than short. Green slopes right to left with a thin neck on the left side guarded by a bunker.

4
Par 3, Length 205m

A long par 3 requiring a long iron, and is often made difficult by deceptive winds. Two greenside bunkers, front right and along the left side, guard this green which slopes to the front.

5
Par 4, Length 455m

An uphill, dogleg left hole with a sloping green. The fairway bunkers are deep and positioned to demand accuracy from the tee. It is a 315 yard carry over the bunkers. The green slopes down to the front and a back bunker catches balls hit too long.

6
Par 3, Length 180m

An elevated tee and large target are characteristics of this par 3. A significant difference in elevation from front to back makes the pin position very important.

7
Par 4, Length 410m

The first shot on this hole is often played to the left centre of the fairway into a slight upslope. From there, a short iron may be played, but it is important to avoid the three bunkers in front of the green and the two behind.

8
Par 5, Length 570m

An accurate drive is needed to avoid the fairway bunker on the right side. This uphill hole features trouble left of the green.

9
Par 4, Length 460m

Best known for its green that slopes from back to front. The tee shot is often hit down the right side hoping to take away the two greenside bunkers on the left on the second shot to the green.

10
Par 4, Length 495m

A long par 4, this hole plays downhill. Players will try to drive the ball to left or centre of fairway, hitting a second shot into the green that slopes right to left. Prior to 1935 this was the first hole at Augusta National and traditionally it is the most difficult hole on the course.

11
Par 4, Length 490m

At this hole begins Amen Corner, and wind is often a factor. A pond guards the green to the left and a bunker is strategically placed right centre. This hole has decided all but two Masters sudden death playoffs and may best be remembered for Larry Mize's incredible chip shot in 1987.

12
Par 3, Length 155m

One of the most famous holes, this is the shortest par 3 on the course. With swirling winds, club selection can range from a 6 to a 9 iron. Rae's creek in front, and three bunkers, one in front and two in the rear, make it a necessity to land on the putting surface. The Ben Hogan Bridge allows golfers to cross the creek.

13
Par 5, Length 510m

An accurate tee shot to the centre of the fairway will allow a player to go for the green in two if he desires. A tributary to Rae's Creek winds in front of the green, and behind the putting surface are four bunkers. The Byron Nelson Bridge is located at this tee. From tee to green are approximately 1,000 azaleas.

14
Par 4, Length 440m

The only hole on the course without a bunker, this hole features a green with significant contours that terrace down sharply left to right. Following a well placed drive, the second shot in will usually be a middle iron.

15
Par 5, Length 500m

A reachable par 5 when winds are favourable, many golfers will attempt to reach the green in two. A well hit second shot must be made over the pond and away from the bunkers that guard the green on the right.

16
Par 3, Length 170m

The hole is played entirely over water, and the green is secured by three bunkers. With the green significantly sloping from right to left, an exacting tee shot is required to have a reasonable birdie opportunity.

17
Par 4, Length 425m

An Eisenhower Tree stands left centre of the fairway and is approximately 195 yards from the tee. The former President of the US and club member hit into the tree so often he campaigned to have it removed.

18
Par 4, Length 465m

One of the most famous finishing holes in golf, this uphill dogleg right is protected off the tee by two bunkers at the left elbow. A drive hit down the centre of the fairway will often require a middle iron for an uphill second shot, to a green guarded by two bunkers.
