Hotels in Augusta
For such a small town, there are a heck of a lot of hotels in Augusta and for 51 weeks of the year you can expect to pay no more than $100 a night for some decent accommodation. However, it us during masters week where the hoteliers make their money. All hotels increase their prices by over 500% and this is one of the contributing factors of the price of a Masters Golf package.
At Tailormade Luxury Golf Holidays we will be using a range of hotels located on Center West Pkway for our Masters Golf packages in 2022. Center West Pkway is located just off Washington Road and is only half a mile from the Augusta National. These hotels are not only extremely well located for easy access to the Augusta National, but that are also within walking distance of a wide range of bars and restaurants which means that you can leave your car in the parking lot.
Fully refurbished in 2019, the Wingate by Wyndham, Augusta is the base for the majority of Tailormade's Augusta based Masters Golf clients.

Augusta Country Club
Par: 72 | Yardage: 6,947 | Opened: 1899
In most towns, this would be the most exclusive golf club, but sadly for Augusta Country Club its got one big famous neighbour in the form of the Augusta National!
However, the Augusta Country Club is so close to the national that the 8th hole plays over Rae's Creek and if you time your approach shot just right, you might even get the benefit of receiving one of The Masters' famous roars!
The greens at Augusta Country Club are fast and undulating and therefore a caddy is highly recommended.

Alister MacKenzie, Augusta National’s co-designer, substantially reworked the course in 1932. Its cleverly contoured greens, gently tumbling terrain and history-drenched clubhouse (designed by Stanford White of Shinnecock Hills fame) are guaranteed to impress.
Mother Nature gave Mount Vintage the perfect setting for a golf course with dramatic topography, beautiful tree cover and sparkling streams. Golf Course Architect Tom Jackson designed the 27 holes to fit perfectly into this diverse topography. The result is a championship layout which is scenic, challenging and fun to play for all levels of golfers.

Par: 72 | Yardage: 7344 | Opened: 2001
Legend has it that the owner of Sage Valley was denied membership at the Augusta National and as a result he decided to build his own 'better' club just down the road. We're not sure that it is actually better than the Augusta National, however it is certainly a very special place. Sage Valley is an ultra private golf club, however if you know the right people it is possible to experience all that it has to offer during one week of the year, Masters Week.
The course and clubhouse are surrounded by several thousand acres of preserved southern pine forest providing a setting of serenity and tranquilness found in visions of life in the south. Tom Fazio and his team of exceptional course designers and planners guided the design and construction of the course and grounds in 2001.
The Sage Valley Members and their guests have access to a 7344 yard pristinely maintained golf course along with three practice “Dormie” holes, a learning center and practice facilities, a 35,000 square foot clubhouse
