Long known as one of the best deals for sports fans, The Masters tournament is slightly less so in 2023, as organizers have announced they are raising ticket prices for 2023. Fans who have access to purchase weekly badges – which are good for all days of the tournament – will have to pay $450 this year, up from $375.

Though that does translate to a 20 percent increase overnight, most fans don’t seem too perturbed by the price hike, as the coveted passes are still largely considered one of the best deals in sports for those lucky enough to score one.

For comparisons sake, tickets to the U.S. Open tournament in 2023 start at $125 for a pass to the first day, increasing to as high as $290 for the final round on Sunday. And that’s nothing compared to what tickets to The Masters go for on secondary ticket marketplaces.

According to data provided by Ticket Club, the average price paid for its members to secure a four-day competition pass to view the 2022 tournament was a massive $11,121 per pass. Sunday-only Masters golf tournament tickets at Ticket Club went for an average of $2,930 for members of the marketplace, which does not charge service fees for members.

Price for consumers looking to attend The Masters in 2023 are slightly down, according to ScoreBig. Masters golf tournament competition passes are currently priced starting at $8,040 each for a 4-day pass, with Sunday competition passes listed for as as low as $1,845 per pass as of Thursday afternoon.

Access to the coveted patron passes is tightly controlled by Augusta National, which has its patrons list as well as a lottery for ticket distribution. The 2023 lottery is already closed out, with those interested able to apply for the 2024 tournament lottery in a window open from June 1-20.

The Masters tournament in 2023 will be the 87th edition of the event, scheduled from April 6-9, 2023 at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta Georgia. It is the first of the men’s major tournaments of the year. An unofficial list of the golfers who have qualified for entry in the tournament from Sports Illustrated is included below, as is a list of ticket resale marketplaces offering tickets for those interested in browsing prices.
