Augusta National Women’s Amateur participants are in for a special treat this year as they will be able to play the Twilight 9 on the club’s Par 3 Course after completing their practice round. This is the first time in the championship’s five-year history that competitors will have the opportunity to play a short course.

Davis, 18, enters her third Augusta National Women’s Amateur tournament fresh off the best finish of her young college career. Last year, Anna Davis, Megha Ganne and Amari Avery participated in the closest-to-the-hole challenge on the ninth hole of the Par 3 Course for a video for the championship website and social channels.

“I think it’s going to be really fun,” said Megan Schofill of Auburn, the reigning US women’s amateur champion. “It’s great for anyone who keeps looking at different parts of Augusta National. The property is so big, so I know everyone is looking forward to it.”

The par 3 course has hosted the annual Par 3 competition on the Wednesday of Masters week since 1960 and underwent a major renovation prior to last year’s tournament. Holes no. 1-5 were rerouted and several trees were removed to improve walkways and lookouts. This opportunity allows competitors to experience and appreciate different aspects of Augusta National Golf Club.
