ESPN ranks Augusta National as the fifth greatest sports venue

Golfers turn each spring to Augusta National as the Masters officially kicks off the major championship season. Of course, the Masters, and Augusta National Country Club in general, is marked by a tremendous legacy.

From its founding by amateur legend Bobby Jones to the championships captured by Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and Tiger Woods, Augusta has always stood out.

ESPN, this month, has ranked the 100 greatest sports venues. Augusta National was ranked as the fifth best overall, trailing the Astrodome, Madison Square Garden, Camden Yards, and top-ranked Yankee Stadium.

Pebble Beach Golf Links was ranked 21st, and TPC Sawgrass was ranked 57th. Finally, Van Cortland Golf Course in the Bronx was ranked 99th as the oldest public golf course in America. Van Cortland opened in 1895.
