Where To Eat
While all of our 2017 Masters Travel Packages come with a daily southern-style breakfast, you can’t visit Augusta without trying some of the local cuisine! If you’re willing to get out and do some traveling to downtown Augusta, there are some great places like Frog Hollow Tavern and Abel Brown.
What (And What Not) To Bring
There is nothing worse than getting to the gates of a large sporting event, only to find out you’ve brought something that you can’t take in with you. That’s why you need to check everything before you go!
The Masters is not your typical everyday sporting event, so you must comply with all of their strict rules that are in place to ensure the best experience possible for golfers and fans alike. Electronics such as cell phones, beepers, tablets, or any other device capable of transmitting video is strictly off-limits within Augusta National limits, as are weapons of any kind, radios, folding armchairs and more.
