Atkins Park Virginia-Highland Tees Off Complete Masters Tournament Coverage April 7-10

It’s 143 miles from the first tee at Augusta National to the patio at Atkins Park Restaurant & Bar in Virginia-Highland. You’d need one heck of a driver to master that shot. Or, use your putter and putt into Atkins Park for complete Masters Tournament coverage from the first tee off on Thursday, April 7, until the champion slips into the green jacket on Sunday, April 10. Golfers and spectators alike entertain chances to win raffles, putt for prizes, sip specialty cocktails such as the John Daly, Sand Wedge, Tiger Bomb and Green Jacket ($6-$7), quaff domestic or imported drafts ($3 and $5), collect commemorative cups and munch on Masters-centric food. Egg salad, pimento cheese, barbecue, chicken breast and turkey sandwiches ($5-$6) are just like on the course, except no pollen, no lines. And, you don’t have to carry your own chair. Atkins Park upgrades the concession chip option by offering fries and sweet potato fries ($3) and field greens salad ($3).

A little golf trivia: Which has been around longer, the Masters Tournament or Atkins Park? The first Masters Tournament teed off in 1934. Atkins Park opened its doors in 1922, establishing itself as Atlanta’s oldest continually licensed tavern. Bobby, you’re just a young ‘un.
