While Big Oak gabbers have been looking over shoulders for a more interesting conversation, some have noticed the shocking sight of Augusta Country Club in the distance.

Now, most people would appreciate such views to capture the scale and grandeur of a property, but Augusta National values its privacy. So the ability to see through may not be something the club is too excited about.

From Doug Stutsman’s Augusta Chronicle story:

After a land deal between the two clubs in 2017, Augusta Country Club underwent a regrassing and bunker renovation project through most of last year, while holes Nos. 8 and 9 received an architectural change. During the project, which forced Augusta Country Club to close its course for 5 1/2 months, trees were removed from No. 8, in turn leaving a more unobstructed view of both courses.

“Taking out trees to the left of No. 8 at Augusta Country Club really opened it up,” Mize said. “But, look, these are two great clubs. Two tremendous clubs. So this is OK. This isn’t a bad thing.”
