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

The Augusta National Women’s Amateur participants this year have a special treat in store for them, as they will be able 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 the opportunity to play the short course.

Anna Davis, 18, is entering her third Augusta National Women’s Amateur fresh off her best finish of her young college career. Last year, she and Megha Ganne and Amari Avery participated in a closest-to-the-hole challenge on the Par 3 Course’s ninth hole for a video on the championship’s website and social channels.

“I think that’ll be really fun,” said Auburn’s Megan Schofill, the reigning U.S. Women’s Amateur champion. “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 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.

In addition to this special treat, competitors will also have an opportunity to see different parts of Augusta National Golf Club through various activities such as practice rounds and walking around the property.
