This chicken coop looks egg-xactly like Augusta National’s clubhouse

Chicken coop designed like Augusta National's clubhouse

Dave Nastalski's "Eggusta National."

Birdies are plentiful at this course.

And so is fowl play.

“Welcome to Eggusta National,” Dave Nastalski said.

Professional golfers were not able to enter the clubhouse at Augusta National in April, as the Masters was moved to November due to the coronavirus. A group of chickens in Raleigh, N.C., are ruling the roost in their place.

“Here we are on Masters Saturday. I’m missing this place. So we decided to bring it home,” Nastalski said on a video on his Instagram account as he holds up a photo of the Augusta National clubhouse – before lowering it to show the Eggusta National clubhouse.

The idea for the Eggusta clubhouse was hatched last year, said Nastalski, the pro at Dogwood Country Club in Raleigh. Eggusta’s clubhouse has two stories, with a door, two windows and two hanging red flower baskets on each floor. Eggusta’s clubhouse has an attic and two chimneys. Eggusta’s clubhouse has a green awning with white stripes over the front door. And, of course, Eggusta’s clubhouse has an arrangement of yellow flowers in the shape of the United States outside the entrance.

Eggxactly like the real thing in Augusta, Ga.

Pete Miller knew how a CBS broadcast would begin.

“I can almost hear Nantz saying “Hello, hens!” ” he commented.
