Holly Springs Chatter

Uncertainty surrounds Masters money spent on rentals, hotels

Augusta National Golf Club’s decision Friday to postpone the Masters Tournament created a bevy of questions among those who already spent money or have been paid to provide services next month.

Holly Springs, N.C., health professional Ken Goss said he won badges through the lottery for this year and was looking forward to attending his first tournament since 1994.

Unfortunately, the hotel where he booked a room charged his credit card Thursday and now won’t refund his money, Goss said.

“They weren’t supposed to bill my card until I arrived on April 6,” he said. “It seems like they’re money-grabbing.”

David Dunagan, who rented his home for this year’s tournament, said he hopes his rental agreement carries through to the rescheduled date.

“From a renter’s standpoint, we just hope that everything will be honored at that time, and we will certainly honor our contract when the Masters takes place,” he said. “We’d like for everything to be the same, except for the dates.”
