The Masters is more than just a major golf tournament that attracts the best golfers from around the world, it's a world-class event in a charming location that dazzles everyone who attends. Annualy the first full week of April, both professionals and fans of the sport gather in Augusta, Georgia to celebrate this prestigious tournament and participate in many of the activities that take place in and around the club. The following are just a few reasons why The Masters is more than just an ordinary tournament:
Augusta National is considered one of the most beautiful golf courses in the world, one of the more important reasons why The Masters is such a special tournament. Originally the brainchild of Bobby Jones and Clifford Roberts, the course opened in 1933 and has been the only host of this major tournament since 1934 for a good reason. The groundskeepers go through immense effort to keep the course looking its best and strict rules are put into place in the weeks leading up to the tournament. As a result, players and patrons experience a course that is unlike any other.
Held on the Tuesday before the first round of the tournament, the previous year's winner of The Masters hosts a dinner for other previous winners and a few select members of Augusta National. With help from the club's chef, the host designs a menu of his choice typically themed from their home country. Past examples include Bernhard Langer's wiener schnitzel, Vijay Singh's seafood tom kah, and Nick Faldo's fish and chips.
Supporting Youth Golf
A big part of The Augusta National & The Masters over the last 20 years has been the promotion of youth golf. Since 2005, the Rock Fore! Dough event has raised funds for a variety of programs that support young players. It takes place each year on the Tuesday before the Tournament and features talented artists as well as famous golfers who want to give back to the community.
There's also the Drive, Chip and Putt competition that showcases the best youth players from throughout the country.
