The Best Way to Get Masters® Tickets

    Historically one of the most difficult tickets in sports to gain access to, the phrases “next to impossible to get”, or “gotta know someone who knows someone” are some which usually come to the fore when trying to get your hands on tickets to The Masters®.

    Contrary to popular belief, there ARE ways to attend golf’s most prestigious event. Taking place from April 11-14 at Augusta National®, the world’s best golfers will compete for the coveted Green Jacket in what is the year’s first Major.

    While some methods of acquiring tickets are safer and cheaper than others, below we have listed ways in which you can go about it.

    Your Best Options

    Before we evaluate all options, please note there is NO Official Ticket Provider to The Masters Tournament.

    Masters Ticket Lottery

    Beginning in 2012, Augusta National announced it would begin to release a small amount of practice and tournament round tickets for public consumption selected through a random drawing after an online registration process (must apply by early June, results are usually released in July). Should you be lucky enough to be selected, practice round tickets are priced at face value. With huge numbers applying each year and the number available to the public unknown, this is definitely your cheapest option, but highly unlikely given the level of interest.

    Ticketing Websites 

    Websites such as StubHub and Vivid Seats are synonymous with event-goers, but be wary when purchasing tickets. It would be highly advisable to check each websites’ respective guarantee policy. Brokers will list their badges in the hope of making the largest profit they possibly can. Pricing on these sites fluctuate throughout the year, with prices gradually rising as the event edges closer. Badges for last year’s tournament rounds fetched close to $10,000, so if this is a route you are taking, you’ve been warned: it is going to cost you!

    eBay and Craigslist usually have the option to buy tickets sold directly by brokers. eBay is a much more reputable source, though they do have a limited number available. eBay carries a buyer guarantee, where you will get your money back should someone try to scam you. Craigslist is buyer beware. With tickets readily (or often not in hindsight) available, be cautious with who you are dealing with!

    Scalping Tickets 

    Looking for a last-minute ticket and you fancy your chances with scalping the golden ticket? Better you than me! Scalping tickets is illegal in Georgia within 1,500 feet of an event, so be sure to keep your distance from Augusta National’s front gates.

    Scalping does work sometimes; if there’s a downpour of rain or if some of the big names have failed to light up the leaderboard. Factors like this drive down the market price, thus more affordable tickets becoming available. DO NOT buy tickets near or on-site, you will be arrested!
