Augusta National

We're just days away from the start of the 78th Annual Masters Golf Tournament. Here's a pic from our scouting flight this morning.

Our plan is to fly in on Friday morning and return on Sunday. Hoping for good Wx.

Here's the official NOTAM:

For anyone else planning on attending... slot reservations at DNL are only required for IFR flights.

My dad got to play at Augusta once...he knew a guy who knew a guy who was a member. He has played a lot of the great courses over about 45 years, but that was the highlight of his golf hobby.

There is a video of the Cessna chief pilot, Kirkby Ortega landing a Skycatcher on a golf course.

I'm wondering if Jim was thinking of doing the same thing! :mrgreen:

Not sure what the greens fees are for landing on Augusta? I guess those playing can just play through? Big fat…NO! :D

Not sure, but the ramp fees at KDNL for the C-162 are $50.00/Day.

Planning to fly-in Tuesday morning for the 80th Annual Masters Tournament. So far it looks like the Wx is going to cooperate. Anyone else planning to fly-in?

FYI - The official NOTAM can be found here: http://www.flyags.com/Resources/1031.pdf

Any discount if you buy fuel? I'm sure the answer is no, but thought i would ask!

One of Cessna's SkyCatcher sales videos had their SkyCatcher demo pilot Kirkby Ortega landing the plane on a Wichita golf course....so maybe you can get in that way, park the plane and save on tickets and tie down fees? Fore.....!
