6. The Masters
Augusta National Golf Club -- Augusta, GA
Why it’s awesome: The world's most famous pro golfing event, Augusta National Golf Club is a beautiful golf course with a rich history, dating back to 1933. The magnolia trees. The Green Jacket. Condoleezza Rice. Come on!
Ease of scoring tickets: The fact that there's a lottery for tickets should tell you everything -- apply now for 2015 at Masters.com.
Position yourself: Amen Corner, a phrase coined in Sports Illustrated in the late '50s, refers to parts-or-all of holes 11, 12, and 13, and is the most popular spot to catch the action.
Must-try signature food/ drink: Augusta National’s food menu is as famous as the course, and your go-to order: the pimento cheese sandwich.
Must-hit spot before/ after: The Frog Hollow Tavern downtown is a strong play or, if you want to eat fried fish and spicy boiled shrimp outside on picnic tables, Rhinehart's Oyster Bar offers "beyond casual seafood" -- which means your scallops'll be served by a dude in jeans and a t-shirt.
