Augusta National:  Perhaps no course is more famous and more documented, with the exception of St. Andrews, than Augusta. The course was constructed in eastern Georgia on a former nursery owned by a Belgian horticulturalist of some 365 acres already populated with pines, azaleas, camellias and a multitude of other flowers and vegetation. Originally a collaboration between the two legends, Bobby Jones and Alister MacKenzie, the course opened in 1933 just a few months before Mr. Mackenzie's death, but before he called it his best opportunity and finest achievement. Over the years the course has evolved slowly gradually adjusting to the technological advances in equipment. But when tour players started hitting wedges into the 18th it was decided that the course was due for a major update.  Tom Fazio was brought in to oversee the modifications, which were intended to make the course play as it did in years past.  The year 2002 marks the inaugural of the "new" Augusta, which lengthens 9 holes and repositions some bunkers.  The 7th hole has added 45 yards from the tips, the 11th and 14th added 35 yards, the 18th 60 yards and a modified green with a new area back right.  In total the new course length has increased 285 yards, from 6,985 yards to 7,270 yards.

Andrew Jones has recreated Augusta National with the APCD for Links 2000.  Lee "Bomber" Harris began and Eddie "Golfzilla" Schmidt has finished an outstanding recreation of the Par 3 Course.  Both courses can be downloaded for free from the Links Corner.
