1931 "Diagrammatic Plan of Augusta National Golf Links." Appears to be an early photographic copy (as in, the Plan's material is more photo-like than a traditional paper print). We are unaware of whether Alister MacKenzie's original hand-signed coy of this Plan still exists, though we have never seen it before. That original plan would be worth upwards of $1 million. 

Offered here is what appears to be an original copy of the July 1931 plans for what became Augusta National Golf Club, but is titled here Augusta National "Golf Links." You'll also note that MacKenzie called for the course to be routed the same way that we know Augusta National today, even though the course debuted with the nines reversed.

This rare early Augusta National course layout comes from the Estate of longtime CBS Producer and World Golf Hall of Famer Frank Chirkinian. Vintage mat and frame. The course layout measures approximately 24" x 20" and framed (without glass) to 31" x 28".
