What Bert Has To Say About Augusta-Richmond County Metro Area


Those familiar with professional golf know Augusta. The city emerged after the turn of the 19th century as a winter escape for northerners. Resorts and country clubs, including the heralded Augusta National Country Club, opened at that time. During most of the year, Augusta is a tranquil, Mid-sized southern city with varied small industry and commercial activity. In April the Masters golf tournament brings worldwide attention and crowds. People with nicer homes rent them to visiting dignitaries and executives (and receive a tax break thanks to a federal tax loophole seemingly designed for this event).
