04 May The 2018 Masters Tournament Tickets – Enter the Masters Ticket Lottery!

Looking for a chance at 2018 Masters Tournament Tickets? You came to the right place!

Welcome to The 2018 Masters! The famed golf tournament is held in Augusta, Georgia every April and is always a spectacle, whether you are a golf fan or not! While spectator’s tickets are not expensive, they are very difficult to come by…While the tournament doesn’t commence util April of 2018, now is the time that you need to be applying for tickets via the Masters lottery! Unless you are very wealthy, or very well connected (or both), then your ticket opportunities to view the Masters are limited, however, you still have a chance through the annual Masters Lottery!

Not only are lottery tickets available to view the actual tournament that runs Thursday through Sunday, but tickets are also available to watch the golfers practice the course Monday through Wednesday leading up to the tournament!

Back in 2016, I was lucky to get my hands on some Tuesday Practice Round tickets via the random lottery and absolutely loved my day in Augusta!

The 16th Green back at the 2016 Masters at Augusta National – the second Masters Tournament I attended!

For those of you interested in getting tickets for future years, I thought I would put together a little lottery how-to guide.

If you have access to Masters tickets through corporate sponsorship or perhaps friends in high places, then that route will give you a much better chance at tickets than the lottery. I have only been entering the lottery since 2013, so winning in 2016 gives me a win rate of 1 out of 5 – which ain’t too bad of odds!

Lottery How-To: First, Set-up a Masters Account!

Next, Apply for the Masters Lottery:

Once you create your account, you will be taken directly to the 2018 Masters Lottery Application page:

In addition to the above confirmation, you should also receive an email – make sure you receive this email to your inbox (not SPAM) as it will be the same means by which you are notified of your lottery selection/denial!

The first lottery selection is for the Thursday through Sunday Tournament days and subsequently, the Practice Round lottery. If you win you will be notified via email if you have the opportunity to purchase tickets!

If you are selected, send in your payment and you will be mailed your tickets in the weeks prior to the tournament.

Congratulations! You have your Masters tickets… now make sure to use points, miles and every trick in the book to get to Augusta, GA without breaking the bank!

    Got my entry in the other day. Had a look at some points options nearby to secure some rooms just in case. As expected most sold out but the Odd hampton inn was available on points.Was about to book and then noticed these were non-refundable standard rooms awards. BE AWARE!

      Wow good looking out! Odds are definitely not good enough to be booking non-refundable rooms! Thanks for the note!
