Also known as Bobby Jones's attic, the Crow's Nest is a top-floor bunkhouse with five beds and a sitting area. Traditionally, it houses amateurs during the tournament.
The accommodations are simple, but the Crow's Nest epitomizes the old-school ethic of Augusta National. It is reached by way of a hidden door and provides a sanctuary for its residents. Everyone from Jack Nicklaus to Ben Crenshaw to Tiger Woods has fond memories of his stay. "The Crow's Nest will always remain in my heart," Woods wrote in a letter to the club.
The Champions Locker Room (above) offers a respite, where green-jacketed pros can reminisce and relax before and after rounds. Four-time champ Arnold Palmer (above right) shelved his ball and glove after his 50th consecutive and final Masters appearance in 2004.
Built in 1854, Augusta's clubhouse was the home of the man who owned the plantation on which it sat. Later, the property became a tree nursery. It's thought to be the first concrete house built in the South.
The locker room for nonchampions (below) may not have the prestige and cachet of the champions' facility, but it does not lack for comfort and style.
