Master’s Challenge

Augusta isn’t the only place to win the coveted “Green Jacket” in April. But you won’t even have to practice. Just mention that your team is vying for it when you reserve the cleanup site.

The winner is based on the following factors: number of years helping with the community cleanup; difficulty of cleanup site; number of volunteers. A complex algorithm, shrouded in the tradition and mystery of the Masters, is used to help determine the winner.

Winning teams have their name embroidered on the Green Jacket. Master’s Challenge Title Holders include

  • 2017 – MBT Bank
  • 2016 – CL Tel
    2015 – Team VFW 4868
