Publisher Notes: April 2020

For months now, Augusta area residents and businesses have spent countless hours preparing for the arrival of golf patrons.

Every spring our fair city plays host to the world’s most famous golf tournament – the Masters. The first tournament was played in 1934. Eighty six years later, golf’s best will arrive at Augusta National Golf Club to tee off on April 9 in the quest for the coveted green jacket.

Augusta National is revered as one of the the most exclusive clubs in the world and the Masters is the pinnacle tournament. It’s no secret that the National has received its fair share of criticism through the years. But recently the club has made significant changes.

In 2018, Augusta National Chairman Fred Ridley announced the Augusta National Women’s Amateur to be played the following April. The inaugural event was extremely well received by golf patrons, sponsors and the golf community at large.

Following Augusta National’s example, we have updated our tournament guide to reflect the new traditions. As always, we have inserted the guide in this issue. We hope you enjoy the new features and the growing tradition of golf in Augusta.

The current state of affairs in our country saddens me. I was raised to love and respect everyone. A person’s skin tone was just that, their skin tone. It has nothing to do with who they are as a person. As humans, we all have the same organs, our blood is red and we...
