2018 Masters Golf Tournament Experiences
Schedule Your Masters Week Tee Times at Champions Retreat
Don’t miss the opportunity to play the only club in the world featuring three individually designed courses by Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus. The three, 9 hole courses are located among 365 faultless acres of skyward Georgia pines, long-standing hardwoods and numerous wetlands along the great Savannah River.
Three Champions, One Private Club
PALMER NINE – ISLAND COURSE
“The Palmer Island Nine is flanked on one side by the broad Savannah River, and the other side by the Little River.
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
NICKLAUS NINE – BLUFF COURSE
“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.
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.”
PLAYER NINE – CREEK COURSE
“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 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

Champions Retreat has retained the services of CADDIEMASTER, a premier caddie management company in the U.S. and abroad, enhancing what is already a terrific experience to an unforgettable one.
