Masters in full swing…

Well not quite yet, but we’re only a few days away from the start of one of the most hyped Masters in recent years. Thanks to Tiger’s return, interest in the event has grown and golf fans everywhere want in on the action. Luckily badges are still available for those last-minute planners. TicketCity also has some incredible packages that include event entry plus hospitality.

For those who aren’t avid golf fans, experiencing the Masters is still a must. Here are a few tidbits about the Augusta National experience: 

* Botanical Beauty – Exclusive and revered, the course is dotted with bursts of blooming Azaleas, precisely manicured greens and towering trees.  Every hole on the course is named for the scenery surrounding it.

* Magnolia Lane – Lined with over 60 magnolia trees planted before the Civil War, the inspiring scene is the perfect setting for pictures of the Founders Circle & Clubhouse.

* Economical Concessions – Don’t be fooled by the entry cost, once inside the grounds, food and alcoholic beverages start at less than $2.

* Polos and Putters – Stop in at the Masters gift shop – the only place to find official Masters memorabilia – then make your way to the putting green where the pros practice and autograph your gear.
