US Masters – DoubleTree By Hilton

Thursday April 5, 2018 - Monday April 9, 2018

DoubleTree By Hilton, Columbia SC

The US Masters is rightly seen as one of the best sporting events in the world!

In 2017 Imperial clients watched with a birdie on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff, Sergio Garcia earned his first major championship victory to join Seve Ballesteros and Jose Maria Olazabal as the third Spaniard to win the Green Jacket. Augusta National is steeped in history with its tournament being the only Major championship in golf to be played at the same venue every year.

Enjoy a warm cookie welcome with stylish accommodation & a 20ft screen to watch the masters in the bar at Doubletree. The hotel is conveniently located at the crossroads of I-20/I-26 & only minutes from the ‘Vista’ Downtown Columbia full of restaurants & bars.
