Masters of Arts
Ritz-Carlton Lodge General Manager Steven Freund, Scotty Cameron, Larry Maguire and Thomas Arvid
Considered one of the United States’ premiere golf destinations, The Ritz-Carlton Lodge on Lake Oconee set a shimmering backdrop for this yearís 2009 Masters Golf Tournament experience. Guests from all corners of the globe enjoyed the comforts of the AAA Five Diamond resort just sixty-five minutes from Augusta National.
Days and nights at The Ritz-Carlton Lodge during Masters Week offer a long list of activities and events. Highlights from 2009 included a once in a lifetime “Masters of Arts Dinner.” Seventy lucky individuals took pleasure in an intimate evening with celebrity guests golf club designer Scotty Cameron, wine artist Thomas Arvid and Far Niente Winery Vice President Larry Maguire, and a gourmet dinner. Mr. Maguire dug deep into the Far Niente cellars to provide the distinguished wines that complemented the occasion. A golf clinic with Charlie King, “Stars & Cigars” evenings by the Lodge campfire and a Fond Farewell Cocktail Party hosted by Absolut Vodka were also available for guests’ enjoyment.
The final round of the Masters each year is scheduled the second Sunday in April. Tournament dates for next year are April 5–11, 2010.
