After watching some fantastic golf with one of our US Masters packages, you’ll probably want to head out and hit a few balls yourself. The obvious but unfortunate truth is you’re not going to get a round in at Augusta, so we’ve put together a list of courses nearby where you should fare a little better. We can book a round for you, but get in as early as possible; all of these courses are really busy around the time of the Masters.
1 Forest Hills Golf Club
This is a public course and offers great value. It’s a 7,231 yard par 72 set in rolling countryside and was voted best public course 2010 by Augusta Golf Magazine.
2 Bartram Trail Golf Club
For one week a year all the members clear the fairways and let visitors from around the world play their course. And what a course. It’s a par 72, 6,700 yard beauty with five Par 5’s and five Par 3’s that runs through beautiful pinewoods along the edge of Euchee Creek.
3 Goshen Plantation Golf Club
A classic parkland course that was voted ‘Best Place to Play 2008/09’ by Golf Digest magazine. It’s a challenging 7,400 yards, Par 72.
4 Cedar Creek
Just across the state border in North Carolina is the lovely course at Cedar Creek. Set amid rolling sandy hills and pine forests it’s a real treat, and gives you a chance to get away from all the Masters crowds. The course was deigned by renowned course designer Arthur Hills. It’s a challenging 7,200 yarder when you play off the championship tees or a slightly less daunting 5,182 if you play off the men's.
