No. 2 remains one of the world’s most celebrated golf courses. It has served as the site of more single golf championships than any other course in America and has hosted the back-to-back US Opens in 1999, 2005 and 2014. The US Open will return in 2024.
Opened in 1907, No.2 was designed by Ronald Ross, who called it “the fairest test of championship golf I have ever designed”. Ross was associated with the course for a near half-century, improving the course continually until his death in 1948. No.2 is best known for its crowned, undulating greens, which are some of the most complex and widely hailed in the world.
To enhance your enjoyment of playing this amazing course, a caddy is provided for your convenience, so you get the “Professional” experience of hitting off the tee, passing your club to your caddy and strolling off up the fairway!

The essence of the very private Reserve Club is the Reserve Course, a superb Nicklaus Design. Upon its completion, the course was named by Golf Digest as one of the “Top Ten Best New Private Courses in America”. It has continually been named one of South Carolina’s top courses ever since. The course boasts a beautiful 7,352-yard layout featuring rolling terrain with plush fairways and picturesque vistas. Golfers enjoy a relaxed pace of play around this breathtaking layout – a scene that only a true architect could create. From the first tee shot to the last putt, golfers are mesmerized by the beauty of the layout and thrilled with the playability of the course.

12th April 2020 Final Round and Green Jacket Presentation at The Masters.
Attend the FINAL ROUND & GREEN JACKET PRESENTATION at THE MASTERS
Augusta is known for its natural beauty and gentle atmosphere. “It’s like being in the most perfect picture that has ever been painted,” said England’s Ian Poulter.
The tournament has a number of traditions. Since 1949, a green jacket has been awarded to the champion, who must return it to the clubhouse one year after his victory, although it remains his personal property and is stored with other champions’ jackets in a specially designated cloakroom. In most instances, only a first-time and currently reigning champions may remove his jacket from the club grounds. A golfer who wins the event multiple times uses the same jacket awarded upon his initial win (unless he needs to be re-fitted with a new jacket).
4:00 – Happy Hour at Teed Up Hospitality Zone
Regular transfers are provided back to your hotel from 4:30 pm until 30 minutes after the green jacket presentation which is held on the practice putting green outside the clubhouse.
Evening: Own arrangements
13th April 2020 Golf at Sage Valley then Transfer to Kiawah Island Resort and Stay at The Sanctuary Island Resort.
GOLF at SAGE VALLEY (Including caddy, lunch, and drinks)
A mere 15 miles from Augusta National, in the rolling countryside of South Carolina, lies the exclusive Sage Valley Golf Club. Opened in 2001 and designed by Tom Fazio, Sage Valley is extra special, and it’s set to become a “Top 100 High Flyer”. As a member of Sage Valley, Teed Up have access to tee times during Master’s time.
With significant elevation and stately pines, not to mention thousands of azaleas, streams and plenty of water, this 7,245-yard course is aiming to become the 21st Century Augusta. Sage Valley is as close to playing Augusta National as most people will ever get. Ranked amongst America’s Best Golf Retreats, Sage Valley boasts a hunting lodge, trap and dove shooting, horseback riding, a full-service spa, as well as great food and beverages.
After golfing at Sage Valley, you will be transferred to Kiawah Island Resort. STAY: The Sanctuary Island Resort, SC
Kiawah Island is a ten mile wide, immaculate, oceanfront beach that invites you to stroll for hours without interruption. Soothing by day, romantic by night, the beach is complemented by the island’s river, meandering lagoons, pristine marshlands, and maritime forests.
The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort, an oceanfront hotel, and spa, is a casual but elegant building, reminiscent of a grand seaside mansion. The four-story hotel was designed to feel like it has been on Kiawah for centuries, evolving and expanding from one imaginary homeowner to the next.
Using the world’s largest mechanical spade, the resort transplanted over 400 trees, including 160 fifty-foot-high live oaks to create a sense of arrival with a centuries-old feel. Designed to be elegant, but not too formal, the interior is characterized by grand spaces and traditional, but light, southern decor highlighted by antiques.
Dinner: By own arrangements
14th April 2020 Golf at Cougar Point Kiawah.
GOLF AT COUGAR POINT KIAWAH (carts included)
Gary Player designed the first and last course to be built on Kiawah Island. Oddly enough, they sit on the same piece of ground.
One of the most dramatic vistas on the island in the middle of Cougar Point’s nine, along the Kiawah River, making this course a very memorable one. Originally named Marsh Point, Cougar Point was redesigned by Gary Player in 1996 and now plays 6,814 yards. It features a great blend of short and long par-4′. great risk/reward par-5s and extremely challenging par-3s. The long par-4s feature wide landing areas in front of the green making them reachable by shorter hitters using hybrid or long-iron. The shot par-4s feature magnificent “target golf” where players must find specific landing areas to avoid hazards and provide the best angle to the greens. It is a great strategic layout where players need to think their way around the course.
15th April 2020 Golf at The Ocean Course Kiawah followed by Presentation Dinner with Host Greg Ritchie.
GOLF AT The Ocean Course Kiawah (Including a caddy or you can cart)
Located on the eastern-most end of Kiawah Island, The Ocean Course has more seaside holes than any other course in the Northern Hemisphere – 10 fights along the Atlantic with the other 8 running parallel to those.
Although it was originally designed to sit behind the dunes, the designer Pete Bye’s wife Alice suggested raising the entire course to allow players unobstructed views of Kiawah’s beautiful Atlantic coastline from every hole. This improved view, however, made the course substantially more demanding as it also exposed it to the area’s brisk and unpredictable sea breezes. Dye took this into account when designing the course. In fact, he designed two courses – one for an easterly wind and one for a westerly wind.
The Ocean Course is one of only four courses in the USA to have hosted every major PGA event in the country including the 1992 Ryder Cup, the 2012 PGA Championship and it will host the 2021 PGA Championship.
Dinner: Tonight, join your host Greg Ritchie for a Farewell and Presentation Dinner – Drinks included
