Augusta National golf course is one of the most famous golf courses in the world. It is the home of the Masters, one of golf’s four major tournaments, and has many iconic holes that a lot of fans and players could tell you how to play with their eyes closed.

Like many golf courses across the world, Augusta National has a name for each of its 18 holes. Some of these names are well known while others go under the radar. Today, we’ll be taking a hole-by-hole look at Augusta National and telling you what each one is called.

Augusta National – Hole by Hole

Hole 1 – Tea Olive: A 445-yard par 4 with bunkers down both sides of the fairway. Historically, this is the 6th hardest hole on the course.

Hole 2 – Ping Dogwood: The first par 5 on the course and a hole that most players at the Masters would be disappointed to leave without at least a birdie.

Hole 3 – Flowering Peach: A short par 4 for today’s biggest hitters at just 350 yards at length. However, the tricky green makes the approach shot difficult.

Hole 4 – Flowering Crab Apple: A 240-yard par 3 that tests players’ accuracy and distance control. The bunker at the front of the green has welcomed a plethora of balls over the years.

Hole 5 – Magnolia: An up-hill 495-yard par 4 that has been the hardest hole on the course since the tee box was moved back in 2019. The hole shares its name with the road that leads up to the course.

Hole 6 – Juniper: The second par-3 on the course and more attackable than the Flowering Crab Apple at 180 yards in length.

Hole 7 – Pampas: A par 4 with bunkers everywhere you look as your approach the green. This hole is a huge test for a golfer’s iron play.

Hole 8 – Yellow Jasmine: The second par five on the course and once again, most professionals can reach the green in two if they find the fairway with their tee shot.

Hole 9 – Carolina Cherry: The final hole of the front nine is a right-to-left dogleg 460-yard par 4.

Hole 10 – Camellia: A 495-yard par 4 that is historically the hardest hole on the golf course.

Hole 11 – White Dogwood: The start of Amen Corner is another incredibly tough par 4 that historically plays as the second hardest hole on the golf course.

Hole 12 – Golden Bell: One of the most iconic par 3’s on the planet thanks to the slope in front of the green which trickles down to Rae’s Creek. Underhit your tee shot and your ball is getting wet.

Hole 13 – Azalea: A par 5 that is historically the easiest hole on the course. The tee box was moved back nearly 40 yards in preparation for the 2023 Masters which has made it trickier to approach in two shots.

Hole 14 – Chinese Fir: The first post-Amen Corner hole is a 440-yard par 4.

Hole 15 – Firethorn: The final par 5 on the course and the final “easy” birdie before the test of the final three holes.

Hole 16 – Redbud: A par 3 with a sloping green which makes the difficulty of this hole entirely dependent on pin position.

Hole 17 – Nandina: The penultimate hole is a narrow par 4 that will test players’ driving ability as the end of the round nears.

Hole 18 – Holly: A par 4 that has been extended in recent years to bring the fairway bunkers back into play. The scene of every Masters triumph.
