Augusta, well known as the home of the Masters golf tournament, is located on the south bank of the Savannah River and is 150 miles east of Atlanta. It is the second - largest metropolitan area in Georgia with a population of approximately 300,000. The city is also a major medical center and, with its nine hospitals and more than 4,600 hospital beds, serves the entire Southeast. Historic Augusta offers all of the advantages of a big city yet maintains the charm of a smaller community. It has relatively mild, short winters and long, warm summers. A wide spectrum of cultural events is offered through the Augusta Opera Association, the Augusta Ballet, the Augusta Players, the Fort Gordon Dinner Theatre, the Augusta Children's Theater, the Augusta Symphony and the Augusta Art Association. Located near the scenic Clarks Hill (Lake Thurmond) Reservoir, the area offers opportunities for water sports, camping, boating, and other outdoor recreational activities. Three airlines service Augusta, and there are approximately twenty daily flights at Bush Field. The beach, the mountains, and several other large cities are within a few hours' drive.
