What is so special about the Augusta National Golf Club?
Apart from being one of the oldest golf clubs (opening in 1933) it is one of the most famous golf courses in the world.
The Club is known to be a traditional institution where traditions and the integrity of the game are passionately guarded. It has been reported that membership for the club costs between $10,000 and $30,000. So im afraid only the wealthy can afford this.
