Women Members at Augusta... I'm Sending in MY Application!Augusta National

 

The men may be grumbling... but women are saying,  "About time!" 

Augusta National... the traditionally strictly male golf club has softened to the ladies.  Women had been allowed to play there... and I have a few friends who have... but they have never been allowed to join the fraternity of male club members until now.

We have attended  The Masters tournament at Augusta National  twice, and it is an experience you will never forget.  The golf course is pristine and steeped with history. Southern hospitality abounds in town and at the club. The vendors are friendly with no branding allowed... you choose light beer or regular.  The pimento cheese sandwiches are fresh and (surprise) reasonably priced!  The best golfers in the world  play here and it is their favorite. 

If you are a golfer, like me, the only thing better than attending the Masters would be to actually play the course.  Lightening fast greens, narrow fairways, and perfectly manicured tees are the hallmarks of Augusta National-- but the history that emanates from this hallowed ground make it unlike any other. 

Augusta National



Can you imagine driving up Magnolia Lane, valeting your car, lunching on Cobb Salad with ice tea, before heading to the range to warm up? 

I never did... until now.  I'm sending in my application!

I have been informed that one does not "apply"... one is invited!  So it is a good thing that I have several friends who are already members. :-)  As far as initiation and dues-- it is my understanding the the initiation fee is really very low for a club of its stature.  Now as far as monthly-- I dont' think they have monthly.  They just divide up the costs per year and then send you a bill.  So if you need to ask how much.... you probably don't belong.  :-)  K

I think I am now healthy enough to learn how to play. It will be a while before I could ever go there to play though.

About time is an understatement!  I am not a great golfer, but would love to play at that course.

Kathy...

It is my understanding that the tournament pays all of the bills ... members are expected to volunteer during the Masters, and they must be true "golf" people that love the game and it's history.

Sounds like you have a great chance to be invited!
