In overall, how much does it cost to play at Augusta? The Augusta National initiation fee — a onetime fee paid upon joining a golf club — is believed to be between $20,000 and $40,000. The monthly dues paid by members are believed to be less than $300, or less than $4,000 annually.
Add on, how does the Masters work?
Each round is made up of 18 holes. Each hole has a 'par', which is the number of strokes a golfer should take to get the ball in the hole. The aim is to use the least number of strokes (golfers want to be "under par"). After round two, the players are ranked and only the top 50 scores (including ties) go through.
