This birds-eye footage of the Masters golf course will make you want to go there on holiday

By Max McLean

Now this is what we call ‘the beautiful game’.

The first major of the golfing calendar is always a grand occasion, and not just because of the nature of the prize – The Masters course is possibly the most beautiful sporting venue in history.

Now, that sounds like a bold statement – and it is – but as arguments go this one has plenty of legs to stand on.

Since the spring of 1934, the Augusta National Golf Club has played host to the prestigious golf tournament and as this drone footage from the Masters Twitter account demonstrates, it’s pretty well suited to the occasion.

The azaleas are perhaps the most famed plant life on the course, but the perfect backdrop the world’s best golfers play against once a year is also bedecked with the lushest of lawns and more besides.

It’s safe to say the world’s golf fans would like to play a round or two on the beautiful course.

We hope the pro golfers realise how lucky they have it.
