One of the world’s most famous and prestigious golfing destinations, Augusta National Golf Club was founded in 1933 on the site of a former plant nursery. It was designed by MacKenzie and Jones, with each of its holes named after a particular tree or shrub, and is consistently ranked as one of the top golf courses in the United States.
