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

In a special treat for this year’s Augusta National Women’s Amateur participants, they will have the opportunity to play a twilight nine on the club’s Par 3 Course after completing their practice round. This is the first time in the championship’s five-year history that competitors will have been able to play the short course.

Last year, Anna Davis, Megha Ganne and Amari Avery participated in a closest-to-the-hole challenge on the Par 3 Course’s ninth hole for a video for the championship’s website and social channels. Auburn’s Megan Schofill, the reigning U.S. Women’s Amateur champion, said she was excited about the opportunity to see different parts of Augusta National and experience its various aspects.

The Par 3 Course has hosted the annual Par 3 Contest on 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 unique opportunity allows competitors to appreciate different parts of Augusta National Golf Club while honing their skills on one of its most challenging courses.
