We hardly need to tell you that the Masters Tournament is one of the year’s four most important golf tournaments. If you’re not already looking forward to the US Masters, there are some good reasons to get excited. This year, six Australian players will attend the tournament: Jason Day, Oliver Goss, Marc Leishman, and last year’s winner, the first Australian to win the Masters, Adam Scott as well as two later starters John Senden and Stephen Bowditch. In fact, Australia is only out-represented by three nations in the 2014 Masters: the United States, the UK and South Africa.
The competition is sure to be especially fierce this year, with the top five players with respect to odds—McIlroy, Woods, Scott, Mickelson, and Day—standing close, between eight and 16 to one, according to several sources. Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods top most of the charts, and McIlroy’s strong showing in recent history almost certainly indicates that his performance at this year’s US Masters will be well worth watching. Both Adam Scott and Jason Day also rank highly in numerous charts, so a second consecutive Australian champion remains a distinct possibility this year.
We at Teed Up are proud to offer eight or 11 day US Masters tour packages to anybody looking to go on a golf tour holiday, as well as an exclusive private group tour package for groups of four or more. These packages include attendance at four days of the US Masters, including the Tuesday and Wed practice rounds and the Friday and Sunday tournament rounds from 10 to 13 April this year at the Augusta National Golf Club.
The competition on Augusta National’s iconic and masterfully designed par 72 golf course will be exhilarating to watch due to the level of skill that the players will no doubt exhibit, but it will offer an unending series of gorgeous sights, as well. In addition, the packages include a chance to play a few games of golf at the luxurious Pinehurst Resort prior to the Masters and includes a game on Pinehurst No 2 which hosts the 2014 US Open.
The hotels in the town of Aiken, South Carolina traditionally host Teed Up’s golf tour attendees, and they are already prepared for our guests for the 2014 and 2015 Masters Tournaments. Aiken sits a short thirty minutes’ drive away from Augusta National along a route that circumvents the traffic from Columbia, South Carolina and Atlanta, Georgia. The town itself offers plenty of amenities for visitors in the off-hours between days at Pinehurst and Augusta National, including a variety of excellent restaurants and bars, as well as beautiful natural spaces nearby to explore.
However, this is not to discourage anybody from visiting Atlanta or Columbia if they wish. Both cities are the capitals of their respective states, and Atlanta is arguably the single most important cultural centre in the American South. Each is replete with entertainment venues, museums, and historical sites to visit. So, book a US Masters golf holiday with Teed Up and get ready for a fantastic experience.
