The Masters Augusta, Georgia

Augusta National - Hallowed ground for my husband Jim.
This year we attended the Masters Tournament as invited guests of a very lovely Southern family.
Below - Crow's Nest
Cameras are never allowed on the actual tournament days.  Jim took these photos at the 2011 practice rounds.  I have watched the Masters Tournament every year on the tele - but had never attended.  Now I get what all the hoop-la is about.  This is by far the most beautiful course I have ever been on. The greens are immaculate and the way the concession stands, gift shops and rest rooms are set up is second to none.
We stayed to the very end on Sunday evening and watched Bubba receive his green jacket.  
Augusta is a really interesting place to explore and we have been enjoying our stay at the historic Partridge Inn, more on that in another post.  For now I'm about to hit the road again for a  couple of weeks and then Jim & I will meet up in Indianapolis for the Indy 500.
Cheers!
Ry
