Course Insight

Designed by Alister MacKenzie and Bobby Jones on the site of a former tree nursery, Augusta National opened in 1932. The course features elevation changes, large undulating greens and relatively few but strategically placed bunkers. The layout has undergone changes throughout its history to continue to provide a strong test for Masters competitors.

Notable Course Features

The stretch of holes from 11 to 13, known as Amen Corner, has provided great drama over the years. The 520-yard 11th (15 yards were added with a new tee in 2022), with a green guarded by water on the left, is one of the toughest holes on the course. The 155-yard 12th is one of the world’s most famous par 3s with its shallow, diagonal green guarded by Rae’s Creek. The 510-yard 13th is a dogleg left that provides birdie and eagle opportunities.
