Augusta National Golf Club is not only home of the Masters, but one of the most talked-about courses in the game. That’s not just because of its breathtaking beauty. The Alister MacKenzie–Bob Jones design provides a wonderful mix of holes where strokes can be gained and those where they can be lost.
