A 1931 drawing of Augusta National Golf Club hangs in the Bobby Jones room of the Atlanta law firm Alston & Bird LLP, which was started by the Masters co-founder.
The map depicts the original routing of the course. Players in the inaugural 1934 tournament teed off first from what is now No. 10, heading through Amen Corner early in their rounds. The clubhouse is in the bottom center of the map, which is oriented differently than most current depictions of Augusta National.
The decision to flip the nines isn't widely known, but it could be the most important move in the course's history.
Rae's Creek winds through the National at Amen Corner, the famous stretch of holes that is often instrumental in deciding the Masters winner. The creek flows in front of the 12th green and behind the 11th green. A tributary runs up the left side of the 13th fairway and in front of the greens.
The creek that becomes famous in the golf world every April has been an integral part of Augusta for centuries. Its story begins a few miles above Amen Corner, flows through the National and runs into the Savannah River.
