Ike’s Tree Removed From Augusta National After Ice Storm

One of the most prestigious and historic golf courses in the world has suffered a great loss. Augusta National had to remove a landmark–Ike’s Tree.

Eisenhower’s Tree (Ike’s Tree for short) drew it’s name for former President Dwight D. Eisenhower. As the story goes, President Eisenhower liked to play the course, but would often have trouble with the tree on the 17th hole. He bounced so many balls off of it that he is rumored to have tried to get it removed.

During the recent winter weather that has battered the East Coast ice storms hit Georgia pretty hard and did some severe damage to the Ike’s Tree. Course officials did what they could to try and save the landmark, but the storm had done too much. It had to go.

“The loss of the Eisen­hower Tree is difficult news to accept,” Augusta National and Masters Chairman Billy Payne said in a prepared statement. “We obtained opinions from the best arborists available and, unfortunately, were advised that no recovery was possible.”

It would not be surprising to see Augusta do something with the wood from the tree to commemorate and remember the famous landmark. However, what the future holds for the landscape of one of the most famous holes in golf remains to be seen.
