How To Plan The Ultimate 2017 Masters Trip

Are you planning your 2017 vacation? Are you a golf fan who loves to travel? Consider taking a trip to the 2017 Masters golf tournament. The Masters is held in Augusta, Georgia where you will see talented golfers compete for four days. If you want to go to the 2017 Masters, here are some tips for planning the ultimate trip:

1. Get a Masters Hospitality pass

The mistake many golf fans make is underestimating the physical demands of the tournament. Even as a spectator you will walk a lot from course to course and sit outside in the sun. The refreshments served during the tournament are limited to sandwiches and a few cold beverages. With a Masters Hospitality pass, you get to relax and truly enjoy the tournament. Here are the benefits of Masters Hospitality:

  • Dine in a fine restaurant on world class food and beverages for meals
  • Shuttles to and from the courses
  • Relaxation in a climate controlled environment

2. Get a Masters Package

A Masters Package is the easiest and simplest way to book almost every aspect of your trip. This takes the hassle out of trying to buy your tickets, passes, and book your hotel separately. There are many 2017 Masters Packages to choose from, depending on your needs. Here is a list of what's typically included in a package:

  • Hotel accommodation for the length of your stay, from 1-4 nights
  • Admission to the tournament, from 1-4 days
