Visiting Augusta National

Hi All

Is it possible to 'walk the course' or visit at any time if you are not a member?

Is there a souvenir store?

Visiting early March.

No not really. You might be able to get a quick peak at the course as you drive down the road.

It's a private club that stays private until the week of the Masters. There's not much to see from outside the grounds, but I'm with PeachBelle - drive down the road and see what you can see if you're going to be in the area anyway. Don't make a special trip for it, though.

That's a pity.

After walking the greatest course in the World, The Old Course at St Andrews, it would have been nice to add Augusta National to the list.

Thanks for the replies

Is it possible to visit and walk the course at Augusta National.

Will be visiting and watching the US open at Chambers Bay mid June.

You have to have a practice round badge for Masters week. The practice badges are pretty easy to get if you inquire around. (it's illegal to sell them but not illegal to buy them from people) This gets you on the grounds and they do have a souvenir store and $1 sandwiches and the like.

You could try and get tournament tickets, but they are going for around $2000 right now.

Last year sandwiches cost 1.50 to 3 dollars. Sodas were $1.50. Domestic beer $3.00. Amazing prices!

Having read your review, I hope you can help me? We are planning to visit the course to visit the pro shop and hopefully get a glimpse of the course.

Are we able to gain access to the shop? As we are visiting Atlanta it would be about 100 mile journey so want to ensure we won't be disappointed.

Hope you can help

Hi Phil, did you see replies 1 and 2 above?

You might want to call Augusta National directly to verify before you waste time on the road.

There is no way you can just show up and be let on to the property. As other posters have said, it is necessary to get a practice day or tournament ticket (aka "badge"). You can go to the Masters website and apply to be in the lottery to get some of the tickets. It took me 21 years of applying to get Masters tickets. Another option is to sign up as a volunteer for the tournament. That, too, is a very long process. You can go on to the secondary market like Stub Hub, etc., to get tournament tickets, but they are incredibly expensive. A word of warning - many fake Masters tickets are sold during and before the Masters each year. It's much more of a problem than is reported. If you are a member of a private club somewhere, you might be able to get reciprocal privileges with the Augusta Country Club which is right next door to Augusta National. You can see a lot of the course from there. Of course, during Masters week, the ACC is closed, I think.
