Augusta Nationa Golf Club — designed by Bobby Jones and Alister Mackenzie — first opened on Jan 13, 1933, and the first Masters Tournament was played in 1934. The rest, as they say, is history.

Never played the course. Been a tournament spectator twice. Number 13 is the hole I would play for eternity, and miss nothing else (well maybe the 16th at Cypress, the 17th at St Andrews and the 18th at Pebble.) Augusta National in April is by far the most gorgeous piece of immaculately kept piece of golf real estate this side of heaven.
