5 Favourite Viewing Locations at Augusta National

Arriving at Augusta National for the first time can be overwhelming, a Masters Spectator Guide would be very useful upon entry. As a golf fan you’ve probably spent much of your formative years and adult life watching The Masters play out on TV and if that is indeed the case, you’ll probably, to a certain extent at least, know the course, its famous landmarks and all its nooks and crannies like the back of your hand.

The first time you arrive at the course, you’ll likely be overwhelmed with excitement and, like a kid on Christmas morning not knowing which present to open first, you’ll be unsure of where to head when you arrive at the course.

• Do you hang out near the 1st tee & watch players get their rounds underway?
• Or do you make a beeline for Amen Corner?
• And where are the concession stands?

Yes... I need a Hot BBQ sandwich already.

Inside The Ropes

The main thing though, is that wherever you may choose to head for when you arrive at Augusta National, getting there early doors and securing a front row seat by plonking your Masters Chair down (the stories are true; pick your spot, set down your chair and you’re all sorted for the entire day) is priority number one.


With your time at The Masters being precious to say the least, we thought we would give you guys a helping hand and let you know where we think are the best spots on the course from a Masters Patron’s perspective.

Of course, the beauty is in the eye of the beholder and to be honest, pitching up anywhere on the course would be understandable, but from our experience, here are 5 recommended spots where you should be aiming to secure a spot with your Masters Chair.

Behind the 16th Tee: Redbud

Short walk to several other holes, as well as bathrooms and concessions!

Get there early and secure your position behind one of Augusta's most iconic holes. Situated just a stone's throw from restrooms and a large concessions stand, this is a prime location for all-day viewing.

With the 15th green, 14th tee and a great viewpoint from which to watch players hit their approach shots into the 13th green all within a short walk, there is also the opportunity to move around without having to stray too far from your chair.

Behind the 12th Tee: Golden Bell

The heart of Amen Corner, a short walk to bathrooms and concessions.

Secure a prime spot on Amen Corner and watch as the world's best players struggle to come to terms with one of the shortest, yet most treacherous holes at Augusta.

Bathrooms and concessions are on site and with the 11th green and 13th tee (which combined with the 12th complete Amen Corner) within view, you never have to stray too far for some exciting action.

NB - Amen Corner is an extremely busy part of the course, get there very early to secure your spot.

Adjacent to the 2nd green: Pink Dogwood

Watch approach shots from the top of the hill and get up close to players as they reach the green.

The 2nd green at Augusta is just a short walk from plenty of other greens and tees so is a great hub for plenty of action. It's also very manageable walk from the entrance to the course and what better way to spend a few hours than watching the plavers take on this par 5 green in 2, making birdies and eagles along the way... maybe even an albatross as Louis Oosthuizen did in 2012?

Adjacent to the 8th tee: Yellow Jasmine

Watch players smashing drives plus close to small concession stand and merchandise booth.

If you are able to secure a spot for your Masters Chair at the front of the ropes, this is the perfect spot to watch the world's best golfers crack driver up the hill on this lengthy par 5.

Concessions and merchandise stores are just a stone's throw away, as are bathrooms and a handful of other viewing points such as the 2nd, 7th and 17th greens.

Right-hand side of the 10th fairway: Camellia

One of the course’s most dramatic & beautiful holes.

The par 4 10th is one of the most exciting and challenging holes at Augusta. Watch from distance as players launch their tee shots down a drastically downhill fairway, and then as they approach one of the course's most challenging greens.

Can you find the spot from where Bubba hit his miracle hook shot to claim victory in the 2012 playoff?
