Most of us will never get a chance to play at Augusta National. I heard a story that President Bill Clinton was in Augusta, GA one time, and decided he wanted to play the course. So he drove out there, and somehow got on, but he quickly taken off the course and he wasn’t allowed to finish. I don’t know if this story is true, but I do know that it’s near impossible to get on the course to play it. That and Cypress Point are probably two courses that golfers dream of playing due to their exclusivity and history. I’ve personally dreamed of playing it every since I started to play golf.
Well, if you can’t play it for real, at least you can play it virtually. The first Premium course for the Dancin’ Dogg golf simulator (read my review here), Georgia Peach has been released. It is a faithful (as far as I can tell, since I’ve never been there) reproduction of Augusta National. So now you can play the course from the back tees and play your own Masters tournament with up to 3 friends.
The course looks beautiful. Below are some screen shots. It is a full reproduction with all 18 holes and it is a joy to play.
Dancin’ Dogg did a beautiful job on this course reproducing all the flowers, and plants, and everything about the layout. This add-on is totally worth the $49.95. It’s a beautifully rendered course that really gives you the opportunity to play this historic layout. Try setting the green speeds to Fast to get a sense of what it’s like to putt at the masters.
