It's the biggest tournament in golf, with around 40,000 spectators going through the Augusta National gates each day.

Here's everything you need to know before heading off to amen corner.

How much does it cost?

It depends on which day(s) you would like to watch the golf. We offer a wide range of options, from practice days through to the full tournament experience.

Can you book my flights?

We can absolutely book your flights as part of your Masters experience, and most of our quotes will include the cost of the flights themselves. Additionally, we can even help you upgrade your flights to make your Masters experience that much more special.

Can I play golf in Georgia during the week?

Where will I be staying?

What should I do in the evening?

Whilst Columbia is buzzing all-year-round, Augusta itself comes alive during the week of The Masters. With restaurants and bars including; The Frog Hollow Tavern, Abel Brown and TBonz, you’ll be sure to find something to meet the requirements of your group. A particular favourite of the Golfbreaks team is World of Beers…we need say no more!

Where’s the best place on course to watch the tournament from?

Heading to the back of the 12th tee will provide you with the perfect vantage point to soak in the drama of golf’s most notorious Par 3. This spot also allows a view down to the 11th green as players navigate the treacherous right-to-left slope around the water. With attendees not able to run on the grounds of Augusta National, the annual ‘speed-walk’ out to the 12th tee box is a sight to behold, as patrons rush to place their chairs in prime position for the day.

Our other top tip is to head to the 11th tee. Usually one of the quieter spots on the course, this elevated tee shot is one of the more daunting the players will face during the week as they look to set themselves up for the challenging approach. Away from some of the larger crowds on the 12th tee box, the 11th tee provides some serenity during this incredible week.

What else should I look out for on-site?

Getting a hold of your own Masters chair is a must! Not only will this be a memorable keepsake from the tournament, it will also act as your placeholder on course for the week. Patrons are not allowed to move the chairs of other attendees, so once you’ve placed your chair for the day – the spot is yours!

The concession stands at Augusta National are world-renowned for their affordability. Unlike the mark-up experienced at most sporting events, prices for Augusta’s trademark sandwiches start at just $1.50, with their famous ‘Pimento Cheese’ sandwich a must-try.

In addition to your Masters chair, you’ll also want to head to one of the biggest merchandise tents in all of sport. From the traditional items, such as caps and polo shirts, through to pet collars and fine crystal, there really is a memento for everybody within the merchandise tent. Our advice would be to head there early to avoid disappointment as the store can get extremely busy with stocks liable to run low later in the day.

Feeling inspired?
Make sure you don't miss out on all the action at one of golf's most iconic and beloved events.
