How do I get Masters Golf Tournament tickets?
Win the lottery. Literally. Each year, Augusta National holds a lottery for prized tickets, with the deadline for entry falling between May and June. Since Augusta National does not publish attendance figures or lottery winning percentages, it is impossible to know your odds. Some have won the lottery on their first attempt; others have tried for years without success. Of course, if you don’t win the lottery, there is another way to get in…but it will cost you.
How much is a ticket for the Masters Golf Tournament?
About $75 to $125…if you win the lottery. But that was last summer, so if you don’t win that, you’re going to have to dig deep and give hundreds or thousands of dollars to an aftermarket dealer. (Which Augusta National frowns upon, by the way.) It’s a once-in-a-lifetime trip, and it’ll also cost you a once-in-a-lifetime price.
