In the Press, Masters Week

EVANS, GA. – Upholding its commitment to providing unrivaled hospitality during one of the most cherished and prestigious weeks in golf, Champions Retreat — an esteemed golf club located just outside of Augusta featuring three individually designed courses by Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus — unveils its programming during the 2019 Masters Tournament. Each curated experience focuses on providing guests with true Southern camaraderie, creating lasting impressions for golfers and non-golfers alike.

From April 8 – 14, 2019, just after hosting the first 36 holes of the inaugural Augusta National Women’s Amateur, the private retreat offers signature golf on courses designed by the “Big 3” legendary champions, a night-lit driving range, roaring fire pits, live musical guests and innovative culinary experiences.

Guests of Champions Retreat have the unique ability to feel the rich history of Augusta and pay homage to the three great golf legends during the Masters Tournament by playing on the very same courses they designed – Palmer’s Island Nine, Nicklaus’ Bluff Nine and Player’s Creek Nine. Foursomes are available every day during the week and include a forecaddie, as well as an all-you-can-eat-and-drink southern breakfast and/or lunch and a full-service bar located in The Barn.

For those with an appetite for sophisticated dining, The Barn will host a four-course experience each night with a one-time seating at 7:30pm. As one of the finest dining options in Augusta, vast selections of Boutique Vintage wines are available for pairing, as well as a prestigious Bourbon and Scotch collection. The rustic, yet elegant vibe of The Barn accompanies a top of the line menu, presenting an amazing culinary memory.

The Grille House accommodates VIP-entertaining hosts and discerning epicureans every night with farm-to-table selections, including features such as Shrimp & Grits, Prime Ribeye Tomahawk and brined Bone-In Pork Chop.

VIP entertainers have plentiful options available with a wide range of hosting capabilities, including The Barn, a 10,000 sq. ft. charmingly rustic event center; Bluff Overlook, an intimate bar setting situated above The Grille House; and Deck 5, a nature-filled, remote dining location overlooking the Savannah River.
