Augusta National Golf Club

Here is what Rory Mcilroy had to say about Augusta National Golf Club

“Where should I begin with Augusta? Every hole seems to have a personality of its own, and the atmosphere on tournament days adds a dimension unlike any other event. It’s Beauty and the Beast stuff. I said before that I could play the par-5 13th all day. I think I still feel that way. There’s danger left and trouble if you’re too straight. But if you can move the ball right to left, there’s a great chance of making the green in two. And what a green! Unless you’re in close with your approach, two putts is a good result.”

Watch: $50m TPC Sawgrass Stadium Course renovations completed

“The Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass project took seven months, survived one hurricane and touched almost every corner of the property, from the golf course the best players in the world will tackle in May for The Players Championship to building a small structure to house an industrial ball-washer — so those players could have a lounge near their practice area.” Garry Smits

 

 


There was some amount of work done to a course that was already perfect. They must be mad pulling up all the greens, but I suppose in the long run protecting the greens is the main thing.

“* All 18 greens on the Stadium course were torn up and re-grassed with Tifeagle bermuda, which stands up to summer heat and winter chill better than the Miniverde bermuda.

* The practice facility was overhauled, with about 35 percent more turf added. Two USGA greens and two Sandbelt greens were built, plus other smaller target greens. The Tour professionals-only practice area was re-done, with two large putting greens (one undulating and one flat) and a new chipping area.

The main advantage for PGA Tour pros when they practice is that the balls they hit to the greens will react, depending on the shots they hit.

“They’re going to be maintained like greens on the course, rather than having a piece of turf with a flagstick in it,” Rapp said. “They know their distances. They need to know how the ball is going to perform.”

* The 358-yard par-4 12th hole was revamped to make it a driveable par-4 of between 285-to-310 yards. The large mound on the left was torn down and replaced by water and a fairway bunker. Another mound between the sixth and seventh fairways was taken out and also replaced by water, improving the aesthetics on a part of the course to which fans rarely ventured.

* The greens at Nos. 1, 4, 8, 11, 13 and 14 were modified slightly to allow for more pin positions and a new tee was built for the par-4 15th hole, creating a daunting shot through a chute of trees.

* New spectator mounds were built to allow for better views, especially in the areas around the fourth, sixth and seventh holes on the front, and the 11th, 12th, 13th and 14th on the back. By adjusting cart paths and mounding, numerous “choke points,” or areas where it was slow going for spectators and players to get from one hole to the next have been widened.

* The PGA Tour Academy building is being doubled to 7,200 square feet, with four hitting bays (instead of two), a larger putting lab and a fitness area.” Jacksonville.com
