A view of the first tee, where players start their 18-hole journey.
Augusta boasts several natural water features, the best known of which is Rae’s Creek, which impacts the three holes of Amen Corner.
The stunning scenery surrounding the 10th green.
Even among the beautiful holes on offer at Augusta, the famous par-3 12th stands out.
The 12th hole is also home to Hogan’s Bridge.
The 12th did not always look as good as it does now, however. Here it is back in 1952.
And here it is now.

The stands surrounding the 15th green form a natural amphitheater.
The 17th tee provides another dramatic location.
