Club Magnolia “Mastering Southern Hospitality”

Masters hospitality club offers a “one stop shop” for everything you need to enjoy The Masters.

Augusta – Each April the world’s best golfers come together to tee off for their place in history at The Masters Golf Tournament at Augusta National. With them come thousands of golf enthusiasts and media to cover the event. They all need housing, transportation, hospitality, and concierge / business services. Wouldn’t it be nice to find all those services under one roof, so that you could just relax and enjoy The Masters experience?

Well, that is exactly what long-time Atlanta entrepreneur Robbi Raitt thought when he opened Club Magnolia almost three years ago. He had shared the experience of trying to find upscale, high-quality services while attending The Masters and knew the frustration that it creates, “My clients were looking for a hospitality facility that was modern, high quality, relaxing, comfortable, and most of all easy. Everything they needed under one roof, and it wasn’t out there.” says Raitt. That is when he and his wife Pam decided to parley using his past restaurant experience into creating a solution – Club Magnolia.

Club Magnolia’s motto, “Mastering Southern Hospitality”, really sums up Raitt’s vision for the club. “I really wanted to build a brand that went beyond banquet style hospitality”, he says “I wanted to create an atmosphere that was like being at an upscale resort and have everything that our guests needed available in one place. ‘Mastering Southern Hospitality’ is reflected in every element of the club, from the first phone call to book your reservation or inquire about a membership, to the moment you step on to the course at Augusta National for the experience of a lifetime”.

With more then 25 years of experience with hospitality packages and Masters corporate hospitality, Raitt and his staff have built a home away from home for guests and members. Club Magnolia resembles a five star boutique resort more than a hospitality house, but with a very casual, laid back feel. It is because of this unique culture that Club Magnolia has served people from more than 20 countries and almost every state in the US.

“Our goal is to make all of our guests feel like VIP’s , we truly go out of our way to make the entire event experience exceptional in every way”, explains Raitt. “We know that people who attend the Masters want to come and not have to worry about anything –just enjoy the experience to the fullest, and that is why we are a true ‘all inclusive’ offering with everything you need, in one place. We go the distance to provide the best service in Augusta or anywhere, from hospitality, to tickets, transportation, housing, business services and more”.

Club Magnolia patrons come from around the world, are from all walks of life, but share one thing – a passion for golf and the desire to have a place, that they can come year after year to see old friends and be greeted by name. Some have the luxury of attending several large golf events each year and for others The Masters is the only golfing event they will attend, but each receives the same personalized service at Club Magnolia.

For Robbi and his wife Pam, running Club Magnolia is a way to bring a warm, comfortable, upscale and no-hassle feel to a hospitality environment in Augusta that is often dominated by “cookie cutter” facilities that are cold, impersonal and often leave their guests on their own to get what they need. “We want people to feel like it is their club, we want them to come in, be comfortable and know that they are getting southern hospitality at its best”.
