In the photo above, the 11th green is in the foreground, and to the rear is the 12th green. Those two holes make up two-thirds of Augusta National Golf Club's Amen Corner, with Hole 13 (whose teeing ground is off to the right of the frame of the above image) the third hole in Amen Corner. The bridge in the image is the Hogan Bridge.

Amen Corner has most famously been involved in the outcome of The Masters at the 1937 Masters, where Byron Nelson made up six strokes on Ralph Guldahl and went on to win; and at the 1958 Masters, where Arnold Palmer's exploits led to the coining of the monicker "Amen Corner."

Walk around Augusta National Golf Club on a Masters practice day, and you never know what you'll find. (And you'll also be allowed to take photos.) This photographer found something pretty nice on the first green. That's Gary Player putting and Jack Nicklaus to the left.

Above is a look across the front portion of the green at Hole 16 of Augusta National Golf Club. The 16th hole is a par-3. The bunker in the foreground is not a good place to be, since the green slopes away from a golfer there, running towards water on the other side. The traditional Sunday pin placement during The Masters is tucked on the left side, which can lead to spectacular results for balls that trickle down the slope, but also brings the water more into play. This hole is named "Redbud."

Augusta National Golf Club Clubhouse

The Augusta National Golf Club clubhouse was built in 1854 and was the home of one Dennis Redmond, who owned an indigo plantation on the land. Later, the land and structure were acquired by Louis Berckmans, a Belgian horticulturist, who, with his son, turned the property into a company called Fruitland Nurseries. Finally, the property - and with it the house that would become Augusta National's clubhouse - was purchased by Bobby Jones in 1931.

According to the Augusta Chronicle newspaper, the clubhouse has been expanded several times over the ensuing decades: the Trophy Room and a kitchen were added in 1946; a golf pro shop was added in 1953; and the Grill Room was added in 1962; and the Champions Locker Room was created in 1978.

This is another view of the Augusta National clubhouse - this time, from behind.

The Augusta National clubhouse is three stories, topped off by the "Crow's Nest." According to the Augusta Chronicle newspaper, the building "is believed to be the first concrete house built in the South." It dates to 1854, when it was built as a plantation owner's residence.

Between the clubhouse and the golf course is a big oak tree known as, well, "The Big Oak Tree." It's a live oak that is more than 150 years old (it is believed to have been planted around the time of construction of the clubhouse).

Augusta National Flowers

One of the many beautiful scenes around Augusta. This one happens to be of the 12th green, and brightly colored, blooming flowers there always make for a great backdrop during The Masters.

That Augusta National would be famous for flowers in addition to golf is only appropriate, since the land the club is built on was, most recent to its purchase in the early 1930s by Bobby Jones, a nursery.

All 18 holes of the big course at Augusta National are named after the flowering shrubs and trees that are highlightedon the holes. To find out those hole names, see our FAQ, "What are the names of the holes at Augusta National?"

The photo shows a view of the 10th hole at Augusta National Golf Club, looking from behind the teeing ground. You should get some sense from this photo of the elevation changes at Augusta. Many visitors to the golf course remark that it is far more hilly, more undulating, than they realize from watching The Masters on television.

Hole No. 10 is a 495-yard par-4 that is named "Camellia."

A downhill look to the green at Augusta National's Hole 6. Why is it a downhill look? Because it's a downhill hole, natch. The sixth hole at Augusta is a par-3 of 180 yards and is named "Juniper."

There are several different species of pine trees at Augusta, the Chronicle says, including "Loblolly Pines, Shortleaf Pines, Slash Pines, Longleaf Pines, Eastern White Pines."

Playing Downhill

Just another downhill shot at Augusta National Golf Club. As noted elsewhere in this gallery, the elevation changes at Augusta are greater than many realize just from watching The Masters on television. Those lucky enough to see the course in person are often surprised at how hilly it is, at how many elevation changes there are. There are many downhill shots and uphill shots all around the course.
