Want to Go to the Masters this Year? You Can. Here’s How.

It’s unbelievable how much the times have changed. Sponsorships and attendance are down, as is Tiger’s rep. But you might not want to pass up this opportunity to go to the major Major of the year–there’s a good chance Tiger will be among the field of competitors.

The hottest tickets in golf are yours for a price less than scalpers used to get for a one-day pass less than a decade ago.

Costco, of all places, has a 3 night, 4 day package that includes lodging, transfers, and tickets for two to the Masters Golf Tournament on Thursday/Friday or Saturday/Sunday rounds. The Masters, of course, takes place at Augusta National Golf Club April 7-12.

Here are the details:

Experience first hand as the world’s greatest golfers compete for the coveted “Green Jacket” at the legendary Augusta National Golf Club. This is a one of a kind opportunity for golf aficionados to attend an event that is unparalleled in golf.  With a rich sense of history and good old southern charm there are few events that can match the allure of The Masters Golf Championship.
