Augusta National Golf Club is an exclusive golf course in

Augusta, Georgia and the site of the annual Masters Tournament in

April. You cannot play Augusta as a walk-on; you must be invited as

a guest of one of the club's members.


Augusta National Golf Club has never disclosed the membership cost,

but it is believed the initiation fee is between $10,000 and

$30,000 with yearly dues costing between $3,000 and $10,000. Dining

and lodging and other services are additional costs. Although it is

an exclusive club, Augusta can keep its costs down due to the

amount of money they make from hosting the Masters.

There are around 300 members of Augusta. There is no application

for membership, it is strictly invitation only.When a spot opens,

the club collectively decides who to invite and mails the

invitation. All members are given the iconic green blazer.Augusta

has drawn criticism in the past for not allowing black members

until 1990 and female members until 2012.


If you ever get a chance to attend a practice round, or competitive

round, at the Masters - do it, it is an experience you will never

forget. In the meantime you'll have to enjoy watching the

Masters.
