How to apply for tickets for the 2023 Masters
The lottery to apply for tickets for the next edition of the Masters at Augusta National opens on June 1, 2022.
Golf fans all over the world can apply for tickets to experience the beauty and traditions of the first major tournament of the year.
Who wouldn’t want to follow the world’s top golfers at one of the most beautiful golf courses on the planet? You’d have to be a millionaire to get tickets to golf’s greatest event, right?
Who can apply for 2023 Masters tickets?
Anyone can apply for tickets to the 2023 Masters on their official ticket portal, and if you’re lucky enough to get chosen, tickets range from $75 per practice round to $115 for a tournament round per person (with a limit of two tickets per lottery-winner) plus taxes.
Approximately 20,000 tickets are available and an estimated 2 million people apply every year for the chance to watch players like Jon Rahm, Dustin Johnson and Scottie Scheffler at Augusta National in Georgia. The odds aren’t great, about 200-to-1, but the alternative is much more expensive.
The difficulty of being rewarded with a day pass through the lottery system has even made some fans even try to find illegal ways of fixing the system.
The window for applying for tickets closes on June 21, 2022, so those interested in walking the Augusta National course will have three weeks to send in their application. Lottery winners will be notified if they are one of the winners when the selection process has finished in July.
How to get 2023 Masters tickets outside of the lottery
If the lottery doesn’t work in your favor, you can still try and get daily passes on the secondary market. Prices for a day pass for a tournament round can cost as much as $5,000 if purchased shortly before the tournament.
The best advice would be to try your luck with the ticket lottery in June and if you don’t get lucky, you can try to buy a ticket well in advance of the tournament to avoid paying ridiculously high prices.
Good luck. Hopefully you’ll have better luck than some of these golf fans:
