Augusta National is one of the most recognisable courses in the world, but what does the Masters scorecard look like? Let’s take a look…

Augusta National scorecard for the Masters

Here is the Augusta National scorecard for the Masters Tournament.


Augusta scorecard hole-by-hole

Here is a hole-by-hole guide to the scorecard for Augusta National.

Masters Scorecard 1st: Tea Olive

The tee shot on the 1st hole travels uphill with fairway bunkers on the right side. It is a fairly tame start to the scorecard with tall trees guiding the player’s direction.

The green is formed in two different sections and it is protected by a green side bunker short and left of the putting surface.

Masters Scorecard 2nd: Pink Dogwood

The first par-5 treats players to a downhill tee shot with the fairway dog-legging to the left. You’ll best remember it as the site of Louis Oosthuizen’s incredible albatross in 2012.

If you land your ball on the front of the T-shaped green, it has the potential to roll several feet to the right, just as Oosthuizen’s ball did.

The putting surface has two bunkers on either side which allows a small gap through which players can thread their ball.

Masters Scorecard 3rd: Flowering Peach

The shortest par-4 on the property offers the chance for big hitters to drive the devilish tilted green.

When the pin is tucked in the front corner, the approach is much trickier as you’re faced with a 50-yard pitch from below the putting surface.

Masters Scorecard 4th: Flowering Crab Apple

scorecard for the masters

The longest short hole at Augusta National can prove incredibly difficult to nestle your ball near the flag if the pin is situated behind the front right bunker.

The green used to be shaped like a boomerang and the pin is far more accessible on the left side, but beware of the sizeable sand trap which also dominates this portion of the hole.

Masters Scorecard 5th: Magnolia

A long four is next, and the fairway looks wide off the tee, but the two bunkers to the left are waiting to gobble up your tee shot.

The length – and difficulty – of this hole are inspired by the 17th hole on the Old Course at St Andrews.

The green has a top shelf and a false front which can catch out underhit approach shots.

Masters Scorecard 6th: Juniper

The next par-3 is a downhill challenge with the patrons surrounding the entirety of the hole.

The hole is at its hardest when the pin is in the back corner of the green, but it is accessible when situated at the front, at the bottom of the slope.

Masters Scorecard 7th: Pampas

A tight drive, you are more likely to find a level lie on the left side of the fairway and the green is protected by a number of bunkers at the front.

A mid iron will likely be the second shot and there are also two bunkers behind this sloping green.

Masters Scorecard 8th: Yellow Jasmine

Each par-5 is seen as a chance to pick up shots at Augusta, but this one travels uphill and features a long, narrow green surrounded by mounds.

The historical scoring average here is 4.82 and the players will certainly be aiming for the green in two if they avoid the fairway bunker.

Masters Scorecard 9th: Carolina Cherry

scorecard for the masters

The front nine ends with arguably the most treacherous green which slopes from back to front. A short approach shot can easily roll back down the hill which could leave the players with a tough pitch back.

Players will likely look to drive their ball down the right side of the fairway to avoid contending with the two greenside bunkers on the left.

Masters Scorecard 10th: Camellia

This long par-4 plays directly downhill and sweeps to the left. There is a 60 yard-long fairway bunker in the middle of the hole that is well short of the green.

The green pitches from right to left and this hole was the scene of Bubba Watson’s miracle shot from the trees on his way to winning his first Green Jacket in 2012.

Masters Scorecard 11th: White Dogwood

The first hole of Amen Corner starts with a downhill tee shot and curves to the right through a corridor of trees.

The water to the left guards the green and can swallow any approach shots that fall short of the putting surface. There is also a bunker situated to the right centre of the green.

Masters Scorecard 12th: Golden Bell

scorecard for the masters

The most famous par-3 in golf? We’ll leave that up to you, but the 12th at Augusta has seen heroics and disasters in the past – none harsher than Jordan Spieth’s calamity in 2016.

The green is a thin piece of ground with bunkers in front and behind the pin. The pin on the left portion of the putting surface can be forgiving, but club choice and commitment are never more important when stepping up to the tee box in the final round with the flag to the right.

Masters Scorecard 13th: Azalea

An accurate drive to the centre of the fairway is crucial for reaching the green in two. There is pine straw and tall trees to the right, and Rae’s Creek winds through the hole and to the front of the green.

There are four bunkers behind the pin, but these traps offer far less punishment than the water hazard short of the green.

Masters Scorecard 14th: Chinese Fir

This par-4 provides some respite for the players who aren’t faced with any bunkers, the only hole of its type on the course.

The putting surface falls dramatically from left to right and pin placement is crucial here in devising your approach shot.

Masters Scorecard 15th: Firethorn

scorecard for the masters

Find the right side of the fairway if you want to be in Position A, but find the left-hand side and you could be blocked out by trees and forced to play this eagle opportunity as a three-shotter.

A spectacular approach will have players feeling a mixture of dread and excitement as they take on the water.

Masters Scorecard 16th: Redbud

Three bunkers protect this hole that is played almost entirely over water. The green slopes from right to left and has so far seen 18 holes-in-one at the Masters.

Arguably the most famous shot on this hole came at the 2005 Masters when Tiger Woods sensationally holed a chip which stopped on the edge of the cup before dropping in. In your life have you seen anything like that?

Masters Scorecard 17th: Nandina

After hitting your uphill tee shot on the penultimate hole, the green provides a number of different challenges with its unpredictability.

The bunkers at the front of the green encourage approach shots landing from lofty heights and the back-right pin position is certainly an interesting one.

Masters Scorecard 18th: Holly

scorecard for the masters

The finisher features a narrow tee shot through a corridor of trees and the fairway curls to the right and up a steep hill.

It isn’t uncommon to see players splash their second shots out of the fairway bunkers on the left of the hole, and the undulating green is also protected by sand traps.
