Augusta National Golf Club hosted the first Masters Tournament in 1934, when the event was called the Inaugural Augusta National Invitation Tournament.

Much has changed since the course was designed by architect Dr. Alister MacKenzie and golfer Bobby Jones, but now 21st-century golf fans will have the chance to experience the original Augusta layout with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14: The Masters Historic Edition.

The special edition of the game will feature not only Augusta National as first designed in 1931 but also four additional championship courses: Royal County Down in Northern Ireland, Royal Melbourne in Australia, Sheshan International in China and TPC Blue Monster at Doral.

Other features of the game include Augusta National's tournament practice facility, its par-3 course and green-jacket ceremony, as well as the full version of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14.
