Georgia is the center of the golfing universe for one week in April every year.
The Masters golf tournament kicks off April 6th, and the City of Augusta plans on starting the weekend early with a lively party featuring the world-famous hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg.
The event supports the Mayors’ Masters Reception, which provides funding for several local Augusta charitable organizations. The City of Augusta recognizes the Mayors’ Masters Reception as the official commencement event to welcome patrons to Augusta for one of the most iconic tournament weekends in golf.
The inaugural musical celebration, hosted by ESPN’s Jay Harris and International Golf Model Seema Sadekar, will be held at the Country Club Dance Hall & Saloon.
Golf enthusiasts and guests will enjoy signature Tanqueray No. Ten Gin & Juice cocktails. DJ Suga Ray and DJ Kor will open up for Snoop, mashing up hip hop, country, pop and old school jams. Snoop will then hit the turntables to spin some of his classic anthems for all to enjoy to kick-off the historic golf tournament in style.
Tanqueray will pay homage to “golf’s 19th hole” by serving specialty Gin & Juice cocktails, including Snoop’s signature drink -- the Tanqueray No. Ten Laid Back.
