Why go?

Make the ultimate golfing pilgrimage and experience the magic of The US Masters.

The Augusta National Golf Course is widely acclaimed as the number one golf course in the world, as well as one of the most breathtakingly beautiful.  The former plant nursery is an explosion of colour, from emerald fairways to dazzling white sand bunkers and glossy banks of blooming azaleas.

Some of the greatest games of tournament golf ever played have taken place here, with defining shots that have shaped Masters history.  Players take compete not for money or ranking points, but for the glory of a Major win, membership of a very special club and the right to wear the coveted Green Jacket.

The U.S. Masters tickets & badges are some of the most coveted in sport. Access to the Masters is cherished by many, yet only a privileged few get the opportunity to walk along the pristine fairways & hallowed grounds of the Augusta National Golf Club.

We highly recommend experiencing the thrill of the Masters on a hosted trip. All the finer details are taken care of by experts so all you need to do is relax, enjoy - and mix with New Zealand golf icons like Phil Tataurangi and Marcus Wheelhouse. 

These trips book out up to a year in advance.  The number of spaces are limited to ensure you receive the best possible service and so that you are able to optimise your time with the host.  We strongly recommend reserving your spot for 2017!

The Masters is unbelievable, if you love golf you have got to go.
