Augusta is not available in Create a Course. :( That means if you're just going for this achievement you have to play it as a single hole (but I'll show you how to get 4 chances each time) by doing the following:

From the Main Menu go to:
Quick Play > Play Now

Select Augusta National as the course. Now go to Course Options.
Set Hole Select to Custom Select. Select Hole 4 only and continue.
Make sure your Course Options look like this:

Weather: Sunny
Wind: Calm
Tee Select: Members
Hole Select: Custom Select (Hole 4)
Flagstick Select: Sunday (Continue reading for more info on this.)
Tournament Atmosphere: On (Doesn't matter)
Course Conditions: Average (You can change this if you like the greens faster or slower.)
Second Cut Length: (Doesn't matter since you're going for an Ace)
Mulligans: No (Mulligans disable the achievement. I have confirmed this.)
Pro Challenge: None

Now set all 4 golfers to Tiger Woods, that way you get 4 tries at an ace before you have to reload the course! Plus this gives you the chance to hit the same exact shot with the same exact wind conditions 4 times. (It's like having 3 Mulligans!) When you choose Tiger Woods press (LB) to change his outfit. You can use him 4 times but he can't have the same outfit on...

Using Tiger Woods as your golfer, if you 85-99% (depends on wind) a 7 Iron on Sunday's flag it's pretty easy to spin the ball to the cup. Try to aim short of the hole and spin that sucker right at the flag.

Thursday's flag is a similar shot to Sunday's if you'd like to use it but the Sunday area has a tiny bit less slope.

Friday's flag is a little closer and Tiger's 100% 9 Iron will hit the flag but it's harder to spin the ball in since there is less room to work with and the higher arc makes the ball stick when it hits. If you fall short on Friday's pin the front of the green is sloped away from the hole making it impossible to roll in. The best way to get it in on Friday is to hit behind and slightly right since the green slopes left then backspin it in.

Saturday's shot is the hardest because the pin is close to the edge of the front bunker and there is a lip along the edge that can give your ball a bad bounce.

Bonus Trivia:
-Jeff Sluman is the only person to ever get a hole-in-one on this hole. He did it in the 1992 Masters.
-Hole 4 has the only palm tree on the course. It's to the right of the front sand trap and is visible in the game.
