Brutal Truth: The odds of you playing the National are about as good as Tiger and Phil spending the weekend scrapbooking together. So we found an Augusta clone you can play. Dancing Rabbit’s Azalea course in Philadelphia, Mississippi isn’t a replica course, but this Tom Fazio/Jerry Pate design has many similarities: a prewar-style clubhouse, towering pines, Bermuda fairways and quick, bent grass greens. And come April, the hillsides are studded with azaleas. The 13th is a color copy of Augusta’s 6th — they’re both downhill par-3s with double-tiered greens and a front bunker. And the greens fees at Dancing Rabbit run as low as $60. Amen to that.
