2011 Masters Tournament Guide

The Masters….there is no tournament and no place on earth quite like it. Welcome to Augusta, GA in April, when Spring presents Bobby Jones’ masterpiece in all of its glory. For those of your lucky enough to gain admittance to those hallowed grounds here are some tips on finding your way.


Gates open at 8:00 a.m. and close approximately 6:30 p.m. If you are an early riser, you can beat some of the traffic and join the dew sweepers. You can also get an unobstructed view of the course and pick your spot to sit if you prefer to stay in one place. If you prefer to follow a group, get a pairing sheet and track your favorite golfers from the first tee.
