Springtime at The Masters

Masters week is always a memorable time to be in Augusta, but when the Dogwood and Azaleas are at their flowering peak, there’s no other place in America where Spring is more dramatic, and more beautiful.  Forest Hills is a neighborhood of brick streets and stately early 20th century mansions that was here long before Bobby Jones ever decided to transform a tree nursery into the most revered 18 holes in golf.

Not only are the homes amazing in their own right, but their gardens were designed to dazzle the eye for a few short weeks in late March and early April. A walking tour is the best way to experience this remarkable creation.  If you’ve never been, put this one on your “list”.
