The Augusta Hill course in Georgia is naturally overshadowed by the Augusta National, though it deserves recognition in its own right. The two courses actual both make use of the same natural water hazard, Rae's Creek (for the 12th and 13th on the National), and a bit of the Hill can be glimpsed by those watching the Masters behind the latter course's 13th. The original Hill course dates to the early 1900s, but today's layout is largely the work of pioneering designer Donald Ross in the Twenties, and apart from some necessary lengthening Ross's vision remains largely undisturbed, in particular his trademark bunkering, and in any case the Hill has weathered the passage of the years in fine style. At 6400 meters, this is a course that accomplished amateurs can take on from the back tees, and that casual players can feel comfortable on, unlike so many modern and renovated courses.

My club pro was kind enough to send a letter of invitation to Augusta Country Club and asked for my permission to play the course. Luckily enough I got a tee time at this prestiguous private club. The course was originally designed by no other than Donald Ross. Brian Silva restored the course a few years ago. The golf course looked beautiful with the contrast of dormant bermuda grass and overseeded green Rye grass. The course opens with a gentle par 4 that has a cool old school square edged green. The second hole will certainly get your attention with a difficult uphill approach and well placed bunkers. The 8th hole is a downhill par 5 and the green is guarded by one of the most famous creek's in golf: Rae's Creek. Augusta Country Club is the only course in the world which shares Rae's Creek with Augusta National. From the 9th fairway you can get some good views of AUGCC's neighbour Augusta National. You can see the 11th fairway, 12th green and 13th tee box through the trees. But the property boundaries are pretty well guarded by a barbed wire fence. Speaking of the 9th: Augusta National bought the 9th hole of AUGCC for reported 27 Mil $. So the routing of the course will probably change soon and a new 9th hole will need to be build. Another notable hole is the 16th with its punchbowl green. Even misshits can have a good result on this forgiving green. Yet it's still difficult to get the ball close to the pin as you don't see much of the green on your uphill approach. If you get the chance to play Augusta Country Club, you shouldn't miss it!
