18 Hole Names at Augusta National

Posted: Sep 30 2013

 

Augusta National Golf Club, located in Augusta, Georgia, will be home to The Masters 2013 from April 8-14.  Though its not-so-distant history has seen many firsts such as its first allowed black members in 1990, and the first women members in 2012, this private organization cannot and should not hang its head over its natural beauty.  

The course originated as a plant nursery.  In fact, each of Augusta National's eighteen holes has been named after the tree or shrub with which it has become associated:

 

  • Tea Olive - par 4, 445 yds.
  • Pink Dogwood - par 5, 575 yds.
  • Flowering Peach - par 4, 350 yds.
  • Flowering Crab Apple - par 3, 240 yds.
  • Magnolia - par 4, 455 yds.
