The window is now open for fans to apply for one of the most difficult tickets to acquire in sports: the 2023 Masters Tournament.
The Masters has employed a lottery system since 2012, allowing a select number of tickets per round. The odds of successfully applying online are low — but the application is free and it offers golf fans a chance to enjoy the sport’s premier event.
A select few patrons — Series Badge Patrons — can attend competition from Thursday through Sunday for the incredible price of $375. (Good luck joining this group: The waiting list has been closed since 1978, although it briefly opened and closed in 2000).
For everyone else, ticket prices are likely to go for thousands of dollars on third-party ticket vendor sites. The reason? Incredible demand. The chance to see the best golfers in the world at one of the sport’s most beautiful and storied venues drives that kind of price.
Here’s how to apply for tickets to the 2023 Masters, as well as average ticket costs for the most famous golf event in the world.
