This golf course in Augusta, Ga., can be yours for $2.5 million (no, not that one)

Goshen Plantation has pine-tree-lined fairways and a plantation-style clubhouse like the more famous club in town that's 20 miles north.

It’s never too early to start making plans to attend the Masters. In fact, you’re probably too late if you’re trying to find a hotel room within 20 miles of Augusta National for this April’s events, but if you’re interested in a longer-term play—and have a bit of room in your budget—you could secure the ultimate location to host buddies/Masters trips every year.

Goshen Plantation Golf Club—one of the few public courses within the city limits of Augusta—is up for sale, and if you have $2.5 million, you might even be able to close before the big tournament. The 1968 Ellis Maples design checks in at a sturdy 7,400 yards from the tips and has been the subject of a two-year rolling renovation by current owner Spike Kelley, a former PGA Tour player and winner of the 1975 Buick Open.

The 210-acre property has a 25,000-square-foot plantation-style clubhouse with a snack bar and banquet room and even includes a 1,900-square-foot apartment where the new owner could live and immediately hit the ground (or Masters grounds) running.

Green fees range from $28 to $49—cart included—and there are robust junior, senior and women’s programs in place. The club calls its practice area “Augusta’s best driving range,” but might be a bit of hyperbole considering the warm-up cathedral Augusta National built in 2010. Still, Augusta Magazine’s former “Best Public Course” winner is no dog track, and a prospective owner could certainly gain from the traditional 200 percent to 300 percent rate surges local courses typically deploy during Masters week.
