Augusta National has always looked so amazing and pristine on TV, but after I was finally able to experience the course in person, I can say there really is nothing like it. The elevations are amazing and it's a pretty good workout to walk the course a few days in a row! Regardless of how many days you may choose to attend, I'd definitely put Wednesday on the list. You can bring in cameras to take photos and enjoy the Par 3 Contest. Another reason to show up early? The best Masters merchandise from the gift shops go fast! Hotels in the area are very expensive, but you can find some very nice homes to rent with a small group for a very resonable price.

Review 3 for Masters Golf
First Class All the Way!
Date:April 12, 2013
The Masters Golf tournament is by far the best tournament I have ever attended. Augusta National is absolutely one beautiful golf course and is like no other. All the people are very friendly. The course looks as good (or probably better) in person as it does on TV. We attended for the first time last year, and we were so impressed that we attended again this year. It is a wonderful experience that I can recommend to anyone, even people who are not golfers. It was on my bucket list for many years, and when I finally was able to go, it exceeded my expectations. I suspect that we will go again next year and maybe for many years after that.

Review 4 for Masters Golf
Date:August 12, 2011
I have been to the Masters 5 times now, I stay with a friend who lives in Aiken, SC. only a 15 minute drive from Augusta I would greatly reccommend to anybody planning to go to the Masters to try and get tickets for Wednesday when the Par 3 Contest is held. The scenery is magnificant, the par 3 course is sculptured beautifully, Wednesday is really a fun day especially if you sit on the grass between the 8th and 9th holes, both holes are played over a Lake. Players interact with the crowd on the 9th hole and it's fun for all. The main Masters course is without a doubt the finest course I have ever seen, the flowers and the grounds are landscaped to perfection. If you are a golfer you will really appreciate this course, plus the surrounding area has many beautiful courses to play. There is a couple of really great gift shops reasonable priced as well as the food. One last remark you must looked at the tree lined driveway leading to the Club House it is so picturesque Visiting the Masters is a once in a lifetime experience, for young and old.
The Masters in Augusta, Georgia is the premiere golfing event on this great planet of ours. The tournament is prestegious and elegant, and very expesive. But to get a great deal, and a casual experience, I believe the practice round passes are the best way to go. The golfers are relaxed, they allow photographs, and they even talk to the gallery. Save some money and attend the practice rounds this year!
Going to The Masters is like going back in time. The grounds are immaculate with the Fairways as nice as some greens I have played. You must get there early and place a folding chair at the hole of your choice. Nobody will move it or bother it just come back and sit down when you are ready. The food takes you back to the 60's, Ham & Cheese, Piminto Cheese sandwichs in green wrapers. Very inexpensive and they keep it that way on purpose. One of my all time favorite events to attend.
Walking on to Augusta National golf course (aka The National) is like stepping back in time. The course is beautiful, immaculate and breath-taking azaleas are in bloom everywhere. Going to the Masters is a must for anyone with an appreciation for the sport and the history of the game. You won't be disappointed.

2011 Masters Bucket List Must
Date:April 12, 2011
My Wife and I visited the Tuesday Practice Round of the 2011 Masters as an item on our bucket list. The experience was out of this world. The course, the facilities, the souvenirs and memories. Tuesday was a great day to attend as nearly all the players were present on the course or practice range. Access to the on site stores and concessions was good. Anyone one who plays golf needs to go to a Augusta. Thanks Ticket City for making our dream come true.
