Green With Jacket Envy
The experience at the Masters Tournament is about the veneration of tradition, the purity of the game of golf, and the immediacy of the relationship between athletes and fans, plain and simple. Every year since 1934 (apart from a brief interregnum during the war), the greatest players of the game and the most dedicated fans have made the pilgrimage to the perfectly manicured greens of Augusta National to pay homage to the vision of Bobby Jones and Clifford Roberts. Once inside the hallowed grounds, everyone is treated exactly the same, whether they showed up on foot or by private jet. A pimento sandwich and beer still costs $3.50, there are no corporate tents, and gracious southern charm and decorum prevails. As the world’s best golfers pull out all the stops on the back nine and you hear a roar rolling over the revered “cathedral in the pines”, you’ll share in the collective excitement as history-in-the-making unfolds around you.
Make your way from Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport to the Ritz Carlton Buckhead Hotel, located in the city’s most chic and affluent neighborhood. Spend the rest of the day at your leisure, retiring early tonight as the Masters Sunday starts early!
Rise early to witness the best golf in the world as legendary names compete for the coveted green jacket! Enjoy a casual lunch or head to the hospitality facilities where there is a bounty of fresh seafood, grilled meats and an open bar where undoubtedly people will be sharing tales from the tournament over drinks.
After breakfast tee off for a round of 18 holes at the renowned Reynolds Plantation National Course. After a relaxed lunch enjoy another round of golf, sharpen your game with the pros onsite, try fly flishing on Lake Oconee or stretch your legs on some of the local biking or walking trails.
After breakfast there will be a transfer to the Atlanta airport (or you can elect to make your own way). Should you wish to stay longer, please ask us to make arrangements on your behalf. There are a myriad of activities on the grounds of Reynolds Plantation (or you can talk to the golf concierge about getting in more golf at the numerous courses surrounding the area!).
