Guaranteed Badges

All of our tours and packages come with guaranteed badge entry to Augusta National.

Our reputation speaks for itself. Every one of our 700+ US Masters customers has received his or her Masters badge for every day, without fail. Few if any other operators can boast such an impeccable record and our expertise is second to none.

US Masters Entry 'Badge'

Unlike most sporting events, aside from a tiny number of oversubscribed ballot tickets, there are essentially no public tickets for the Masters championship days - entry is by ‘badge’. Nor does the event have any visible corporate sponsors, marquees, private suites, advertising boards, etc.

The 40,000 people who walk through the gates of Augusta National each day during Masters week are not considered fans, nor are they a crowd or even a gallery. They are “patrons” who have the privilege of attending the event and adhering to the club's high standards of etiquette.

To highlight this point, CBS commentator Jack Whitaker made the mistake of referring to a patron gallery as a "mob" during the 1966 telecast. He wasn’t invited back.

Badges allowing entry to Augusta National are the property of "patrons", many of whom have held their entitlement for many decades. Badges entitle the patron the privilege of accessing the course during the Masters. Patrons are permitted to nominate who can use their allocated badges pending the signing of an agreement regarding the nature of use plus acknowledgement of the rules implemented by Augusta National Golf Club regarding use of the badge. Strict rules including pre-payment of a security bond apply to ensure all patrons are appropriately behaved and to ensure the safe & punctual return of the badge immediately following attendance on your concluding day.

Hospitality

Is It Worth Purchasing Hospitality?

In a word, no. Unlike most other golf events, there is no hospitality inside Augusta National. All the so-called "hospitality" options you might see advertised are unofficial and are located outside the grounds of Augusta National, meaning to visit them you need to exit the grounds and walk at very least several hundred metres to the venue in order to grab a sandwich and beer (which will cost you only $4 at the course).

It's completely impractical and sacrifices precious time at the Masters, and as such virtually no one uses it even though they've paid handsomely for the privilege. Experience has shown us that our very own complimentary hospitality back at the hotel each evening is everything you could wish for and perfectly tops off a fantastic day at the golf.

We are very happy to offer hospitality for those with their heart set on it. Just be advised that the feedback from those who have purchased it from us in the past runs a very familiar theme, they wish they hadn't bothered.

Please contact our office if you'd like details.
