One of the many beautiful scenes around Augusta. This one happens to be of the 12th green, and brightly colored, blooming flowers there always make for a great backdrop during The Masters.

That Augusta National would be famous for flowers in addition to golf is only appropriate, since the land the club is built on was, most recent to its purchase in the early 1930s by Bobby Jones, a nursery.

All 18 holes of the big course at Augusta National are named after the flowering shrubs and trees that are highlightedon the holes. To find out those hole names, see our FAQ, "What are the names of the holes at Augusta National?"
