Masters Tournament 2023: Complete Coverage

Masters Tournament 2023: Complete Coverage

It’s Masters Week in Augusta.  And like many years, there is a threat of rain in the area.  According to WJBF, there’s currently a 20% chance of rain on Thursday, with cloudy skies.  But it gets worse from there. There’s around a 70% chance of showers and thunderstorms on Friday, and a 100% chance of rain on Saturday. By Sunday, the rain chance goes down to 50%.  Of course, weather isn’t very predictable, and here in Georgia, we’re used to things changing every day when it comes to weather.  So our hopes are some of the rain threat will move on out of here ahead of the tournament this weekend.  But if it doesn’t, where are the best places to go when you get rained out at the Masters?

Here are a few spots you can find to stay dry if you’re rained out at the Masters!

  • Restaurants and Bars

  • Twin Peaks: 277 Robert C Daniel Jr. Parkway, Augusta, GA

    At Twin Peaks, you’ll find the coldest beer in town, plus wall-to-wall TVs, and delicious made-from-scratch food.  You won’t have to miss a moment of what’s happening at the tournament, but you’ll get to stay dry.

  • Doc’s Porchside: 3035 Washington Road, Augusta, GA

    Their location on Washington Road isn’t too far from the National, so you’ll be close by when things dry out.  Enjoy food and drinks and catch the action on their TVs.  They also have some live music later in the evening all throughout the week.
