How often do you have the opportunity to watch in person the best players in the world compete in their sport? That moment is upon us. Starting this month— March 31-April 3— literally the best players in the world in women’s golf will tee it up at Mission Hills Country Club in the Kraft Nabisco Championship, a.k.a. the LPGA Tour’s version of The Masters. Comparing any golf course to Augusta National is a mistake, however, the Mission Hills Country Club Dinah Shore Tournament Course, designed by legendary Desmond Muirhead, has its own intrigue and mystique. It is a beautiful meandering layout; a traditional masterpiece that lulls you into thinking it can be mastered. However, more times than not, the course masters you. Virtually every important player on earth that qualifies for the Kraft Nabisco Championship plays in the Kraft Nabisco Championship. The consensus is that no player in the world of any consequence would ever miss competing in this, the first LPGA major of the year.
