Can I play a round of golf at Augusta National or can I go visit the course?

No. Augusta National Golf Club is a private club and is only accessible to club members and their guests. The public may visit the course only during the Masters Tournament and only with the proper ticket or badge.

Can I bring children to the tournament?

While there is no specific age restriction for children attending the tournament, guardians are responsible for the behavior of their children. In cases of repeated misbehavior, parents and guardians are subject to removal from the course if young patrons cannot behave in an appropriate manner.

Every person must possess their own ticket to the practice rounds or tournament, regardless of age.

Junior Pass Program explained

The Masters allows accredited patrons to bring a child between the ages of 8 to 16. But there are certain protocols to follow.

According to the club, fans ages 8-16 can attend free when accompanied by an accredited patron (the person whose name appears on the series badge application) ON TOURNAMENT DAYS (Thursday - Sunday). There is a limit of one child per patron.


The program does not apply to volunteers, employees or business partners who receive or purchase series badges.

Juniors need not be related to the accredited patron to attend.

Juniors must register at the ticket gate; patrons must show driver’s license.

A complimentary pass will be issued to the junior, and it is not transferable.

When will my tickets arrive?

Practice round tickets and tournament badges are mailed out about five weeks prior to the start of the tournament.

How can I become a member of Augusta National Golf Club?

Membership at Augusta National Golf Club is by invitation only. There is no application process.

Where can I purchase Masters merchandise?

Masters merchandise can be purchased only from one of the merchandise stands/shops at Augusta National Golf Club and it can be purchased only during the Masters Tournament.
