Columbia County is now in its fifth year of hosting the Augusta National Women’s Amateur, bringing two weeks of golf and more attention to the area. This tournament is shining a spotlight on local businesses, from coffee shops for pre-golf fuel to restaurants for lunch and dinner. With an influx of visitors over the next two weeks, businesses in Columbia County are seeing a spike in customers and revenue.

Ironwood Tavern General Manager, Daniel Rhobes, shared his excitement about the increase in business during the tournament. He said that employees are making more money, and the restaurant is welcoming new faces. Just minutes away from the course, dessert shop Vampire Penguin is also benefiting from the surge in customers. Owner Marvin Walker enjoys introducing out-of-state visitors to their desserts.

As businesses gear up for the tournament, they are learning from past experiences to better prepare for the crowds. Ironwood Tavern orders extra food and wine to meet the demand, while Rooted Coffee sees a surge of customers looking for a morning pick-me-up before hitting the course. Both businesses are experiencing a positive impact from the tournament, creating a win-win situation for everyone involved.

The Augusta National Women’s Amateur has become an important event not only for golf enthusiasts but also for local businesses. The influx of visitors during this time brings significant benefits such as increased revenue and exposure for these establishments. As they prepare for this year’s tournament, these businesses are excited about what it brings to their community and look forward to continuing their partnership with this prestigious event in years to come.
