Participants for Friday’s Augusta National Women’s Amateur are now confirmed.

New Twilight Nine Opportunity Enhances Augusta National Women’s Amateur Experience for Competitors

The Augusta National Women’s Amateur participants will have a unique experience this year, as they will be able to play a twilight nine on the club’s Par 3 Course after completing their practice round. This is the first time in the championship’s five-year history that competitors will have the opportunity to play the short course.

Last year, Anna Davis, Megha Ganne and Amari Avery participated in a closest-to-the-hole challenge on the Par 3 Course’s ninth hole for a video for the championship’s website and social channels. Auburn’s Megan Schofill, who won the U.S. Women’s Amateur last year, said she is looking forward to seeing different parts of Augusta National during this event.

“I think it will be really fun,” Schofill said. “It’s just great for everyone to keep seeing different parts of Augusta National. The property is so big, so I know everyone is looking forward to doing that.”

The Par 3 Course has hosted the annual Par 3 Contest on the Wednesday of Masters week since 1960 and underwent a thorough renovation before last year’s tournament. Hole Nos. 1-5 were rerouted and several trees were removed to improve patron walkways and viewing areas. This opportunity allows competitors to experience and appreciate different aspects of Augusta National Golf Club.

This special treat for competitors will surely make their experience at Augusta even more memorable and enjoyable as they get ready to compete in one of golf’s most prestigious amateur tournaments.
