Augusta Pines, characterized by small, undulating greens and plenty of water, offers a solid test on heaving land framed by tall pines.
The front nine at Augusta Pines is inspired by the storied back nine at Augusta National, a string of holes imprinted on the national consciousness by The Masters. The layout's incoming nine borrows from Pinehurst No. 2, Oakland Hills, and other classics, though the holes are inspirations, not cookie-cutter copies.
Augusta Pines hosts the annual Champions Tour tournament, the Administaff Small Business Classic.
