This was an excellent book starting with the dreams of Bobby jones and Clifford Roberts wanting to build Augusta. The early history that went with it made the book great reading

My love of all things "Masters" related was only enhanced by this masterpiece of a book. What a wonderful walk thru the early years. It provided me with an even greater appreciation golf lovers should have of how close we came to never having this great tournament. I could easily lose myself in the book and see myself there as all the critical decisions were made to keep the club afloat in those trying early years.

A very interesting and informative book about the beginning and the struggles "The Masters" had before becoming the sports icon it is today. It was also interesting to read about the men that made it happened. I've known a lot about the history of the tournament and have been fortunate enough to attend the tournament many times but this was information about the early years that I didn't know. I enjoyed it.

Excellent background on the development of the Augusta National Golf course. Important reading since I was attending the Masters this year (2015). The background information made our visit just that more enjoyable.
