This year I was able to attend a day at the Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta, Georgia. I went on Thursday, April 9, 2009, which was opening day of the actual tournament. I am not much of a golfer, but I got the tickets for my boyfriend’s birthday because he loves golf. Another friend of mine also got a ticket for that day. I had never even been to the Masters and was overwelmed with the beauty of the lawn. The flowers were all in bloom and it seemed as if every blade of grass was in perfect place. I was amazed at the fact that it was so quiet for the amount of people that were on the course. We walked around to the different holes, watching the players tee off. Hole 6 was my favorite hole because the audience could actually sit on the green while the players hit the ball. The players, including Tiger Woods walked two feet away from us. We spent some of our time going through the gift shops where I bought a hat for myself and brother, and my boyfriend bought a polo golf shirt and a couple of souvenirs for his family. We also toured the room where they hold the trophies and plaques of the winners. There were also small TVs that told interesting facts about past Masters.
If I had another opportunity to go back to the Masters, I would take it in a hearbeat. I suggest that you go if you ever have a chance. It was defiantly a great experience that I will never forget.
