Badge-sharers, beware: Augusta announces new change to Masters tickets policy

Masters patrons flood through the gates at Augusta National Golf Club.

Augusta National Golf Club is changing its Masters tickets policy when it comes to entering and exiting the hallowed club.

The Masters has updated its gate policy, and patrons are now allowed a maximum of two daily entries per badge. The previous daily maximum for entries was three, which was put into place in 2017. This change was first reported by The Augusta Chronicle, and it’s reflected on the Masters website.

This practice will apply to the final round of the Augusta National Women’s Amateur, the Drive, Chip and Putt National Finals and all practice and competitive Masters rounds.

Augusta National has not immediately responded to GOLF.com’s inquiry regarding the reason for the change.

The Masters’ reentry policy gives patrons freedom to come and go during the day, although some patrons have used it to share badges with friends or family members, and others for stocking up on merchandise.

The Masters is April 11-14 in Augusta, Ga.
