The Nine Hole Course at Augusta National Golf Club Ratings & Reviews
3 months ago
A magical place. The course is perfect. The organization is perfect. They make improvements every year that make it even more perfect. Only complaints are I wish they hadn't built Berckmans Place. One of the appeals of The Masters was that it didn't have VIP areas (except for the members and guests at the Clubhouse). Also, I wish more of the merchandise for sale was made in the USA. Practically all of it is made out of the country. Food is good and you can't beat the prices. The Masters may be my favorite sports event of any.

Cannot put into words the beauty of this course and the grounds in general. Even if you're not a fan of the sport you must visit at least once in your lifetime to experience this place in person. Simple breathtaking. Every visit I've had is better than the last.

Was fortunate enough to spend the entire week during the 2016 Master's (that's right...I still use the apostrophe) to cap Watson's Master's career. Where do I start?...
It goes without saying, the grounds were in phenomenal condition. The staff were as pleasant and friendly as those found at Disney. The parking was convenient and free.
The concessions were beyond reasonably priced. Bought lunches that cost less than the price of a soda at an NFL game! Fresh and delicious every time.
Be sure to bring comfortable shoes. The terrain is more undulated than is apparent from television.
The patrons, as they are called, were also very friendly. I talked with coaches, CEOs, sports commentators and other regular folk, like me. There was no condescension directed toward me from those of wealth and power. Seems everyone is just HAPPY TO BE THERE!
I am positive that, in today's society, this is the ONLY place where you won't see or hear anyone on a phone...they are not permitted. Saw a young lady and her father get booted for sneaking theirs in and using it during the par 3 tourney. They don't mess around. They will not hesitate to blackball anyone not in compliance.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that cameras are allowed during the practice rounds and par 3 tourney, so don't leave your camera at home if you're there before Thursday.
In summation, a once in a lifetime experience made possible by the unbelievable folks I work for. Thank you Tom and Hilary!!!
