Augusta National’s Eisenhower Cabin undergoing renovations
AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — One of the most historic structures on the grounds of Augusta National Golf Club is undergoing an extensive restoration.
The Augusta Chronicle reports that work on the Eisenhower Cabin began this summer to update its infrastructure. According to plans filed earlier this year with the Augusta Planning and Development Department, 15 holly trees and 61 azaleas will be planted on the cabin’s east side.
The renovations affect less than one acre and are scheduled to be completed by the time the private club opens in October.
Dwight D. Eisenhower had joined Augusta National some years before winning his first presidential term. The club had to figure out how to handle staff and security to accommodate presidential visits, and thus the cabin was built in 1953.
