The famed Augusta National Golf Club, home of The Masters, didn’t receive relief from the ice and snow storm wreaking havoc on the east coast. So far, the most well known trees appear to have endured the freezing rain and sleet that started Tuesday night and carried on through Wednesday,

An Augusta National spokesman said Thursday via text that the club had some minor debris cleanup, which was expected given the severity of the storm that brought nearly an inch of ice and caused widespread power outages.

The club is still assessing the damage and is scheduled to reopen for normal operations Friday morning, he said.

The Masters is scheduled for April 10-13 this year.
