The Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta 2017

The Augusta National Golf Club, home of the prestigious Masters® Golf Tournament, was founded in 1931 by golf legend Bobby Jones and businessman Clifford Roberts, on the site of a former indigo plantation and commercial nursery named Fruitlands. Captivated by the rolling terrain blanketed with azaleas, yellow jasmine, flowering peach, and tea olive, Jones copied each hole from one of his favorite fairways worldwide to create the course of his dreams. Then, in 1934, he invited the world's best golfers to a contest there and The Masters® tournament was born.

Held each year, during the first full week in April, Masters® practice round tickets, and daily tournament tickets are limited and sold in advance by application only. Non-member course visitation and souvenir shopping is only available during the tournament, and only with a series badge, practice round ticket or daily tournament ticket.
