The Augusta National Women’s Amateur is set to tee off next week, and it’s certainly the cheapest ticket you’ll find to see tournament golf at iconic Augusta National. In fact, it currently costs less than $300 to get into Augusta National for the final round.
Tickets for next Saturday’s final round are $225 on Stubhub.com and go as high as $520 for the final 18 holes.
This pales in comparison to tickets for the Masters, which will take place at Augusta National the week after the Women’s Amateur. For context, Monday’s practice round at the Masters currently costs $550, and tickets for the Masters final round are $1,899, over $1,600 more than what it will take to get into the final round of the ANWA.
The first Augusta National Women’s Amateur begins next Wednesday and runs until next Saturday. The tournament’s final round can be seen next week on NBC. The first 36 holes of the 54-hole tournament will be played at the nearby Champions Retreat, while Friday’s practice round and Saturday’s final round will take place at Augusta National. (Tickets are not available for the practice round.)
The field consists of the world’s best female amateurs, as the top 30 U.S. players in the final 2018 Women’s World Amateur Golf Ranking were invited. The next 30 highest-ranked worldwide amateurs were also invited, while exemptions were given to winners of various junior and amateur events. The remaining spots were filled by invitations courtesy of the Augusta National Women’s Amateur Championship Committee.
Only the top 30 in the field after 36 holes will advance to Saturday’s final round at Augusta National.
The winner receives exemptions into the next five Augusta National Women’s Amateurs, provided she remains an amateur, and also gets invited to the 2019 U.S. Women’s Open, 2019 Women’s British Open and any USGA, R&A and PGA of America amateur championships for which she is eligible for one year.
