About The Masters Golf Championships -- Augusta, Georgia
The Masters Tournament is one of four major tournaments held annually in professional golf. Unlike other major tournaments, the Masters is held at the same location every year, in Augusta, Georgia. The tournament is held at legendary Augusta National Golf Club. The Masters is a 72-hole, four-day championship held Thursday through Sunday with Practice Rounds held Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday prior to the start of the Tournament. The Masters history is rich in tradition as the winner not only receives a huge payday, but also receives a lifetime invitation to the Masters, and an automatic invitation to every major tournament in the next five years. Also, another tradition of the Master’s is the famed “green jacket” given to the winner of the tournament.
Going to the Masters can be quite physically demanding. Expect to do a lot of walking on the course to see your favorite PGA players. Food and beverage service is also very limited while on Augusta National - with just the traditional Pimento sandwiches and canned sodas and beer available. We recommend adding a Masters Hospitality pass to your Masters travel experience to allow you and your guests a place to relax and get a full service meal. This venue offers a country club-like atmosphere located minutes from the entrance of Augusta National Golf Course.

Our Tips for relaxing Masters watching:
Do sit in the bleachers at Amen Corner (11,12) where you can see both tee offs and putting or sit by 15, 16, 17. Right after the golfers finish up their rounds on Practice Rounds and Tournament Rounds, they usually head to the driving range behind the main clubhouse to hit a bucket of balls. Watch them tee it up and work on their swings with their coaches from the bleachers and rest your feet. Remember ladies, measure your purse before going in (must be 10″W x 5″H x 5″D). If it’s too big, you will have to check it.
Banned items at the Course: No cell phones, no pagers. Remember camera’s are ok on practice round days.
