Why Masters concessions are the best deal in golf
The Masters concessions are truly a tradition unlike any other.
The prices are cheap, the food quality is above-average and did we mention the prices are cheap? Getting into the gates of Augusta National for the Masters is notoriously expensive – StubHub has weekly badges going for about $9,000 – but once you’re settled in at your favorite viewing spot on the course, you can eat like a king.
Ten bucks can get a cup of coffee ($1.50) and a chicken biscuit ($1.50) for breakfast, followed by an egg salad sandwich ($1.50) and chips ($1) for lunch with a beer ($3) to wash it down and a cookie ($1) for dessert. With fifty cents to spare!
Two items on the menu that are quintessential Augusta: the pimento cheese sandwich and Georgia Peach ice cream sandwich, the latter being a massive slab of peach ice cream smashed between two sugar cookies with a nap being required immediately after.
