Augusta National

Home of the Masters Championship and rated #1 Golf course in the world

The course was designed by Alistair Mackenzie and Bobby Jones in 1933.

Bobby Jones retired from golf in 1930, and he immediately set out to build a Golf Club.

Partnered by Clifford Roberts they found a disused fruit nursery in Augusta which still had flowering plants and trees, and decided that would make the perfect backdrop. With designer Alistair Mackenzie work got under way in 1931, and the new Augusta National was opened in 1933, with the first tournament held on the course the following year.The Masters as we know it was born in 1939. Augusta is renowned as one of the most iconic courses in golf, but also the most private.
