Masters: How Much Do Masters Tickets at Augusta National Cost?

Tour Confidential: Will a Recent Champ Win the Masters?
With Charl Schwartzel capturing the 2016 Valspar Championship, several former Masters winners will enter Augusta hot. Our panel debates: Is it more likely someone like Schwartzel, Bubba Watson or Adam Scott dons the green jacket this year than one of the Big Three?

The Masters might not start until the back nine on Sunday, but tickets to the tournament sell out well before the first shot of the week gets struck. Officially, that is.

If you didn't win last year's lottery for this year's Masters (that's how the folks at Augusta roll, selling tickets to the tournament by random selection nearly a year in advance, after you submit an online application), it doesn't mean you can't get through the gates.

You’ll just have to go through the unofficial secondary market — and those channels aren’t cheap.

As of this week, for instance, a Monday practice round ticket is listed on StubHub for a starting price of $372. For Tuesday and Wednesday practice rounds, the starting price jumps to $400 and $782, respectively.

Wanna watch all four days of tournament play? A Thursday through Sunday badge can be had for $3,975. And if you’re looking to walk the grounds all week, practice rounds included, $6,800 should do the trick.

Be advised: prices can fluctuate suddenly and dramatically depending on the hype surrounding the event. Last spring, for example, before Tiger Woods confirmed that he would compete in the 2015 Masters, weekly badges were fetching around $9,400. When Woods announced that he’d be in the field, the price leapt to around $10,500.

As for the 2017 Masters, the ticket application process will open May 10, 2016.

The deadline for daily tournament tickets is May 31, 2016. The application deadline for practice round tickets is June 25, 2016.
