The lush green layout framed by colourful flowers might be as close to perfection as a golf course's condition can get.
But has the Masters given golf fans a false sense of what makes a golf course great?
iSeekGolf writer Rod Morri thinks so, according to his recent column, Morri: Mixed Feelings About the Masters.
"Every April golf fans around the world see the pristine conditioning at Augusta National and assume presentation is a major contributing factor to a ‘good’ golf course. It isn’t," Morri writes.
If Augusta had fairways equal in quality to the local council course and greens running five feet slower on the dreaded ‘stimpmeter’ it would still be one of the world’s best.
