updates on the way to the course.
Course Hours: Gates open at 8:00am (except Thursday)

IMPORTANT FAN NOTE: On
Thursday at 7:40 am begins the Masters Ceremonial first tee
shots by Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Gary Player.
Practice Rounds vs Tournament Rounds: There are two
unique experiences, one relaxed and fun; the other intense
and competitive. The practice rounds are Monday, Tuesday and
Wednesday; spectators can bring cameras to take pictures and
request autographs, Wednesday features the Par 3 contest in
the afternoon. Thursday through Sunday include the live
tournament rounds, very strict policies (no smart phones or
cameras etc); the players are in a zone and trying to
execute every shot in an effort to take home the prized
"Green Jacket" on Sunday. Both options are still quality
experiences and will satisfy your expectations, guaranteed!

parking in designated areas between Washington and Berckman's

Masters Spectator Viewing
Augusta National Golf Club is
a fantastic place to watch the best golfers in the World
compete for the coveted "Green Jacket". It's basically
designed as a "Spectators Course" similar the concept used
by the TPC called "Stadium Course". The outer boundaries of
the course are higher than the middle, allowing patrons to
easily look down on the players and their caddies. The
course was way ahead of it's time from an architectural
standpoint; it was designed in 1933 by the Legendary Bobby
Jones and Alister MacKenzie.
Step 1 - Starting Times and Pairings Sheets: As soon
as you arrive at the course, the first thing you should grab
are the players pairings and starting time sheets, they are
located in small mailboxes near the entrance gate areas and
- Keep in mind; players
will start their rounds on either Hole #1 or Hole #10,
use the rule of thumb below for determining where you
player will be.
- After you grab your
sheet, make a mental note that it's basically a 4 hour
to 4 hours and 30 minute round. So if the player you are
interested in tee'd off at 11:00 am you can expect him
to be making the turn between Hole #9 and Hole #10
between 1:00pm and 1:15pm. (12 to 14 minutes per hole)
Observation Bleachers and
Grandstands: They are located strategically around the
course, great for a rest or a permanent location if you like
the vantage point.
Viewing Tip: The greens for #10 and #18 are located
at the top of the hill and are great locations to watch two
holes at once. The spectator bleachers located in Amen
corner allow patrons to watch the approach shot and putting
on hole #11, tee shot and putting for hole #12. If you
place your chair on a hole it will not be touched, many fans
have a home base, then, walk around the course and come
(Hole # 6 Par 3 Over Water, Lot's of Action)
Amen Corner: Holes #11, #12, #13 are critical holes
for the tournament golfers; you must at least pass through
them and admire the legendary beauty of the Azaleas, Rae's
creek and the lush green foliage.
Spectator Tip: Another great tip is the bleachers
behind Hole #12, it's a par 3 over water and spectators can
see the approach shots to hole #11 as a bonus. You may also
want to know there are bathrooms and a large concession
stand steps away from this fantastic viewing location.
Bobby Jones' Recommended Viewing Holes for Spectators /
Patrons: Hole #4, Hole #7, Hole #12, Hole #16 and Hole #18
People Watching: The gigantic Oak tree located near
Hole #1 and the Clubhouse is a fantastic place to check out;
you will often see A-list celebrities, athletes and sports
announcers and all the Augusta Members in attendance.
Driving Range and Practice Facility: This is a pretty
cool place to see, you can sit in the bleachers behind the
driving range and watch players warm up before or after
their round. Some are relaxed and talking with their caddies
and swing coaches, others are 100% focused on every pre
round shot. Early in the week you'll often see Manufacturer
reps from the big companies like Callaway, Ping, Titleist,
Cleveland, Taylormade, Cleveland etc handing players new
equipment to test. The practice area and driving range is
located inside Gate 6A on the left.
