This is a course whose members are all super wealthy and powerful. The course is ready for play for the tournament every April, just in time for the azaleas to bloom. The course is all about the “Master’s Green.” Everything is a deep beautiful green color. The cart paths are green, the garbage cans are green, the drink cups are green, the fairways are green and flawless, and of course the Greens are green.
The Augusta club is all about tradition. It is all about rules. My brother tells a story** of a member who brought two very important politicians (let’s just say Senators) to play a round. The member was informed that there must be one member playing for each guest invited. The member insisted these were very important guests and the rule should be bent. Wrong Club! Rules were rules. An emergency phone call was made to recruit another member in order to complete the foursome and allow both Senators to play.
** See above, I'm even too lazy to call my brother and fact check this story.
