GREAT GOLF GETAWAY
Grab five friends and hop the next flight to Georgia, for the Masters final on April 13 at the Augusta National Golf Club.
Deal: Book the “Masters Final Sunday” golf package with Kensington Tours for a total of six people. You’ll pay $5,395 per person, down from $9,643 per person, and get VIP access to the coveted Masters final round. Also part of the deal: a police escort to the Augusta National, four nights at the Presidential House of the Ritz Reynolds Plantation, two rounds of golf at the championship golf courses and one night at the Ritz Buckhead. If you don’t have five buddies at the ready, then ask about Kensington’s other last-minute Masters options.
Experience: You’ll make it there just in time for the final, and you’ll enjoy coveted access and cuisine. Food served at the Augusta National Golf Club includes the four-cheese pimento sandwich (the recipe is a tight-lipped secret), served on the Par 3 at tea time at The Masters. Some golf trivia: The first Masters was played in 1934 with Robert T. Jones Jr. making a return to competitive golf; in 1953 a cabin was built for then-President Dwight D. Eisenhower, which is one of a handful of residences on the course’s grounds.
