  • 7:00am - Magnolia Manor Hospitality opens, check in with the SGH desk if you have hospitality. Grab a fresh brewed coffee and make sure to stop by the omelette station!
  • 8:00am - Gates open, this morning is a great opportunity to walk the course with very few other spectators. Many of the players competed in the Shell Houston Open and arrived late last night or early today so play will be limited until later this morning. This is a great day to spend time at the range and just getting a feel for the history of the course and Tournament. Stop by at Rae's Creek and the Big Oak beside the clubhouse. Pairing sheets for tee times are located all over the course- these make a great souvenir gift for friends back home! Don't forget a stop at the Pro shop on your way out.
  • PM: - After you are finished watching golf for the day please proceed to Magnolia Manor for food, beverage, and/or shuttle back to the hotel.

Tuesday, April 4

Today is the second day of Practice rounds at the tournament.

  • 6:45am - 1st hotel shuttle departs for Magnolia Manor Hospitality and the course.
  • 7:00am - Magnolia Manor Hospitality opens, check in with the SGH desk if you have hospitality.
  • 8:00am - Gates open, During the practice rounds, the players are much more relaxed allowing opportunities to interact and take pictures. (Insider Tip- Get a great picture by looking down at the green in the middle of the fairway from the cross walks!)  Head over earlt to Amen corner and get in the stands at the 12th tee. From there, you are in the heart of Amen corner and can see the approach shots to 11th green, all of the par 3 12th hole, the tee shot and second shot on the par 5 13th hole. Nearby rest room and concession buildings make this the ideal spot for the day. An absolute "must- have" picture is looking down Magnolia drive and the Founders Circle with the Tournament logo in flowers.
  • PM: - After you are finished watching golf at Augusta National, please proceed to Magnolia Manor for food, beverage, and/or shuttle back to the hotel.

Tonight you will leave Augusta and head home. Be sure to watch the Tournament from home!
