Participants for Friday’s Augusta National Women’s Amateur are now confirmed.

Augusta National Golf Club is giving its Women’s Amateur participants a special treat this year. After completing their practice round, they will have the opportunity to play a twilight nine on the club’s Par 3 Course. This marks the first time in the championship’s history that competitors will have been able to play the short course.

Last year, Anna Davis, Megha Ganne and Amari Avery participated in a closest-to-the-hole challenge on the Par 3 Course’s ninth hole for a video for the championship’s website and social channels. Auburn’s Megan Schofill, who won last year’s U.S. Women’s Amateur title, is excited about this new addition to the tournament. “I think it’ll be really fun,” she said. “It’s just great for everyone to keep seeing different parts of Augusta National. The property is so big, so I know everyone is looking forward to doing that.”

The Par 3 Course has hosted the annual Par 3 Contest on Masters Wednesday since 1960 and underwent a thorough renovation before last year’s tournament. Hole Nos. 1-5 were rerouted and several trees were removed to improve patron walkways and viewing areas. This opportunity allows competitors to experience and appreciate different aspects of Augusta National Golf Club, making it an unforgettable experience for all involved in the event.
