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

Participants in this year’s Augusta National Women’s Amateur will have a special treat as they will be able to play a twilight nine on the club’s Par 3 Course after completing their practice round. This marks the first time in the championship’s five-year history that competitors will have the opportunity 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, who is entering her third Augusta National Women’s Amateur fresh off her best finish of her young college career, said she is looking forward to experiencing different parts of the Augusta National Golf Club.

“I think that’ll be really fun,” said Schofill. “It’s just great for everyone to keep seeing different parts of Augusta National. The property is so big, so I know everyone is looking forward to doing that.”

The Par 3 Course has hosted the annual Par 3 Contest on the 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 opportunity allows competitors to experience and appreciate different aspects of the Augusta National Golf Club.
