Participants for Friday’s Augusta National Women’s Amateur are now confirmed.

Augusta National Golf Club is set to offer a unique experience for participants in this year’s Augusta National Women’s Amateur. Following the completion of their practice round, competitors will have the opportunity to play a twilight nine on the club’s Par 3 Course. This marks the first time in the championship’s five-year history that competitors will have access to the short course.

Anna Davis, 18, who is entering her third Augusta National Women’s Amateur, is particularly excited about the addition. Last year, she and fellow competitors Megha Ganne and Amari Avery participated in a closest-to-the-hole challenge on the Par 3 Course’s ninth hole for a video on the championship’s website and social channels.

“I think that’ll be really fun,” said Auburn’s Megan Schofill, reigning U.S. Women’s Amateur champion. “It’s just great for everyone to keep seeing different parts of Augusta National. The property is so big, so I know everyone is looking forward to doing that.”

The Par 3 Course has hosted the annual Par 3 Contest on the Wednesday of Masters week since 1960 and underwent a thorough renovation before last year’s tournament. Hole Nos. 1-5 were rerouted and several trees were removed to improve patron walkways and viewing areas. This opportunity allows competitors to experience and appreciate different aspects of the Augusta National Golf Club.
