The Manor is located about 100 yards down Magnolia Drive off Washington Road. But don't worry about a walk in the early morning. The Manor has shuttles running to the course and back to The Manor after the course closes.
Sadly no. Augusta National does not allow cell phones on course grounds at any time. They will be checking purses and you will have to walk through a metal detector but if you have brought a phone by mistake there is a storage area just beside the entrance. (Beware pickup at the end of the day can have a long line). The Manor offers a complimentary service to keep all of your prohibited items in a safe location while you're on the course.
Augusta National doesn't allow large purses, bags, or backpacks (over 10” x 10”x 12”), iPads or other tablets, coolers, strollers, flags, cameras, weapons of any kind, radios, tvs, two way devices, alcoholic beverages, coolers, and golf shoes with metal spikes.
You are allowed to bring a camera to the course during the Practice round days – Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. But you are not allowed to bring any cameras on Masters Tournament days – Thursday to Sunday.
The Manor has a full staff of valets on site to allow for a smooth and easy drop-off and pick up.
The Par 3 Contest is held on the Wednesday before the start of the Masters Tournament. It's a 9 hole, Par 3 tournament filled with Tournament participants, noncompeting past champions, and honorary invitees.
The famous Green jacket was first given out to members of Augusta National in 1937 as a way to easily identify Club members in case any fans would need to ask any questions.
Autographs are never allowed on the golf course during practice or tournament days. Autograph seekers can however wait at the practice range and on the Par 3 course during the Tournament.
We suggest the grandstand behind the 12th tee. You have to get there early! But when play rolls through it's the best seat at the Augusta National. You get to see the approach and putting on 11, all of the 12th, and the tee shot coming back on 13. There's a concession stand right behind the bleachers and bathrooms nearby
We suggest that you meet underneath the large scoreboard when you first hit the course. If you try to meet at the concessions or pro shop before that, the huge number of guests can make it hard to find each other. Especially without cell phones! Another possible meet up location is by the oak tree behind Augusta National clubhouse. You'll get a chance to view players, caddies, TV presenters and more as they meet and interact with each other and the fans.
Yes- Augusta National has several ATMs located on its premises.
In early April, Augusta temperatures range from highs around 80 and lows near 50. We recommend a mix of cold gear for night, and warm gear for the course. Always bring sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses.
We would be happy to provide recommendations and assist you with making reservations at the best restaurants and bars in town.
