A state-of-the-art driving range and practice area, a new entrance and parking lot, plus a caddie shack and another souvenir shop—Masters veterans aren't going to recognize the place

(A) The 18-acre practice area sits on a former parking lot, and at 400 yards there's no need for nets—the range is 140 yards longer than the old range.

(B) The club spent millions to acquire enough land for a 8,500-car parking lot.

(C) A golf shop is strategically located to the left of the new main gate.

(D) Goodbye, Washington Road. Fans can enter only on Berckmans.

(E) A new TV studio overlooks the practice area.

(F) The hospitality area is housed here.

(G) The players' lot is close to the range.

(H) The golf services building, a.k.a. the caddie shack.
