Masters draws guests to Thomson, boosts tourism
Thomson Mayor Kenneth Usry visits with two women from San Francisco, Calif., during a reception last week at Comfort Inn. The event was one of several special receptions to help guests feel welcomed at area hotels.
Once a year, thousands of golf fans flock to Augusta to the Masters. It is impossible for Augusta to house all the tourists, which results in a spill over effect for communities all the way to Atlanta.
Only 30 minutes away from the Augusta National parking lot, Thomson makes a perfect destination for any Masters-goer unable to book a room in Augusta or who simply prefers the small town feel over the chaos in the city.
