MASTERS WEEK PREVIEW GUIDE April 5th â€“ 13th, 2020
Three Champions, One Private Club PALMER NINE – ISLAND COURSE
NICKLAUS NINE – BLUFF COURSE
PLAYER NINE – CREEK COURSE
“The Palmer Island Nine is flanked on one side by the broad Savannah River, and the other side by the Little River.
“This is a nice, rolling piece of property with mature pines throughout. Very little dirt has been moved, which means the course fits nicely with the existing terrain and its surroundings.
“The site for the Player Creek Nine at Champions Retreat offers so many opportunities for a wonderful golf course. The opening four holes play a beautiful wetland area, while the remaining holes move upland through native hardwood trees.
The spectacular hardwoods and pines along the riverbank have been saved and the fairways have been raised to take advantage of the beautiful vistas along the rivers. There is not a better setting for golf in the South.” - Arnold Palmer
This is the kind of site that provides you the opportunity to design a golf course that, on opening day, will appear as if it’s been there for 50 years.” -Jack Nicklaus
The ninth hole dramatically plays over and around a large lake on the right. All level players will finish the nine with a variety of shot making challenges.” - Gary Player
