Happy Birthday Augusta National


It was 86 years ago today, on Friday January 13 1933 that Augusta National was opened. There was a parade and then Bobby Jones played an exhibition of the course in which he went round in 69 shots. The opening was attended by friends near and far and he made the announcement that The Masters tournament would be played for the first time in 1934 every second week in April.

Here’s a film by a local journalist from the Augusta Chronicle which explains the layout and what happens in you are lucky enough to attend The Masters.
