Stop by any of our dining venues to watch the Masters and snack on our own version of the pimento cheese sandwich. We suggest washing it down with a cold beer or sweet tea, you really can’t go wrong with either.

The best thing from Round 1 of The Masters?

This may be the best thing you see from the first round of The Masters all day.

Great, great work by Adam Sarson, one of the must-follows on Twitter, who puts together a gif capturing the honorary tee shots of Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player along with their matching tee shots from 1965.

For video of the entire ceremony – and to hear the jokes by Arnold and Jack – watch it here:
