Pat Shingleton: "A Masterful Course."
The entrance to Augusta National includes 122 Magnolia trees that canopy the club's entrance. Nine years ago, my son Michael and I enjoyed the final rounds of The Masters. Our friend Paddy Quigley provided guidance, suggesting placement of portable chairs on #18 before walking the course. Our chairs were steps away from the playoff with Tiger Woods and Chris DeMarco. Augusta National embraces tree reforestation and a radar system that conserves water, reducing runoff. The parking area is unpaved to embrace natural absorption. Showers halted play as we were surprised to hear what sounded like an engine. Standing water and puddles on the greens were eliminated as underground suction devices removed the results of the shower; play resumed.
