The field in this year’s Augusta National Women’s Amateur face a new challenge in this year’s first two rounds at Champions Retreat: fresh and firm Bermuda grass greens.

Champions Retreat in Evans, Georgia – just less than a 30-minute drive from the gates of Augusta National Golf Club, home of the Masters – installed new putting surfaces in 2021, replacing heat-sensitive and disease-prone bent grass with the TifEagle strain of Bermuda grass.

Cameron Wiebe, general manager of Champions Retreat, said the new putting surfaces have grown in incredibly well and will provide improved, consistent and healthy putting surfaces for the ANWA and for club members throughout the year. The first two rounds of the ANWA are March 30-31 at Champions Retreat before the tournament moves to Augusta National for a practice round April 1 and the final competitive round April 2.
