And the winner is…

A congratulations is in order for the winner of the 81st Masters Tournament, Sergio Garcia! Here’s to a win (and the Green Jacket) you truly deserved!

It was between Justin Rose, England, and Garcia, Spain, until the 18th hole. After being considered the best golfer to never win a title, he made that green jacket his on Sunday! “I was just screaming,” he said on CBS This Morning of his win.

The Garden City turns into something magical.

Masters week is always an exciting time for tourists and Augustans alike (and of course the winner of the tournament!). The waves of people from all over the nation and overseas mix in with the people of Augusta, creating a vibe that is anticipated throughout the year.

Not only do we enjoy seeing people from all over, we get to see celebrities – that is if you’re lucky! To name a few that were spotted: rapper Snoop Dogg, actors Jason Bateman and Mark Wahlberg, the country music stars Lady Antebellum and Darius Rucker.

 

Keep in mind…

Out-of-town guests, you know it’s time to go ahead and get your ducks in a row for next year’s tournament, right? A common trend that we’ve been seeing in prices each year is that they increase. You don’t want to wait until the last minute to book housing, hotels, event venues, etc.; they fill up fast! This is the best time to set those plans in motion for 2018!

 

Once again, congratulations Sergio! And THANK YOU Augusta for making this week unforgettable as usual!
