AUGUSTA NATIONAL GOLF CLUB IS WORKING to make COVID-19 vaccinations available in the Augusta, Georgia, area.


Augusta National and the Masters Tournament are partnering with a local health organization -- and donating $1 million -- to help with COVID-19 vaccinations on property donated by the club.

The club's property at Washington Square shopping center will be used as a vaccination site. Augusta University Health will run it.

Augusta National Chairman Fred Ridley was quoted as saying:

"Helping expand access to COVID-19 vaccinations is another meaningful way to do more for our neighbors in the Augusta community that has supported the Masters Tournament for more than 80 years. We hope these resources will have an immediate impact on their efforts to protect those most vulnerable and our community at large through more vaccinations.''
