16th Hole, “Red Bud,” Augusta National Golf Club



The Redbud, Cercis canadensis, is one of the taller of Augusta's flowering trees. The small pink flowers appear early in spring and the fifty or so trees which enhance this hole make a delightful show. The scoring on this difficult but scenic hole has been the deciding factor in many Masters Championships. Originally a short, undramatic par three, it was reworked in 1947 by Robert Trent Jones and now plays across a long pond to a fiendish target - not just the green but the correct sector of the green for a ridge slices the surface into two tiers. The tee shot is made more intimidating by the presence of three bunkers, with the right-rear being the most fearsome on the course.
