In Phoenix, Arizona, a homeowner transformed his backyard into a miniature golf course designed after the Masters back-nine at Augusta National.

Ahead of the 2021 Masters, former PGA Tour caddy Michael Collins visited the house and played a game for his ESPN+ show, “America’s Caddy.”

The house belongs to the Augustyniak family and the course is called “Augustyniak National”.

The course was designed and built by PuttTek, a company founded by a former amateur golfer of the year from Arizona. It took a month to build.

It looks like a golf fan’s dream backyard, and it doesn’t even need a lot of space.
