The Masters, is one of the four major championships in professional golf. Scheduled for the first full week of April, it is the first of the majors to be played each year. Unlike the other major championships, the Masters is held each year at the same location, Augusta National Golf Club, a private golf club in the city of Augusta, Georgia, USA.
The Masters is unlike any other major sporting event in the world, since in the name of tradition tickets are not available to purchase. Only patrons who are on the list receive the right to purchase four-day badges, usually being willed from one family member to another. Making them the hardest sports tickets to obtain.
This opportunity doesn't come around very often, you have the chance tonight to make someone's dream of being at the Masters a reality! In addition to scoring these coveted tickets for Wednesday, Thursday & Friday, you will receive VIP Hospitality and be personally escorted by 18 year PGA TOUR player & Golf Channel Analyst, Mark Lye.

This is an extremely rare opportunity experienced only by a select few. Your exceptional evening will begin at the Shore Station located at the end of Gordon Drive. From there you will board the stately motor launch, the Lady Ann Louise, to enjoy cocktails while cruising through Gordon Pass into the Gulf of Mexico. Depending on the time of year you select, your party will watch the sunset before re-entering the Pass and docking in the lush cove of Keewaydin Island. You will be thoroughly enchanted as you wind your way through the Arrival station and beyond. You will feel like you’ve stepped back in time as you enter the historic Lodge.
