Teed Up offers a wide range of packages to suit every kind of traveler. Due to our long term relationships and reputation we are able to secure the highest quality hotels during Masters Week which is a great advantage as these properties are scarce. It is why we base ourselves in the upmarket polo town of Aiken, SC as Augusta itself mainly has budget motels and hotels. All our escorted packages are based on the same itinerary, as outlined on the next few pages; the only difference between them is the inclusions and the level of hotels provided in Aiken for Masters’ Week.

Hanse’s design and routing, which seeks to create a landscape similar to Pinehurst No. 2, will include exposed sand and native wire grass, wider fairways and natural topography.

“We think this approach will create a more authentic, visually interesting golf course and one that feels in tune with its unique surrounds” says Hanse.

Only 30 minutes to Augusta, it comes to life during Masters Week. The bars and restaurants  are full of locals making the golf visitors feel welcome.
