Masters' Souvenir Question

helper_monkeyhelper_monkey Members Posts: 235 ✭✭✭
A friend of mine asked if I knew if it was possible to buy Masters' souvenirs at the tournament without a ticket. My recollection from the couple of times I have been is that there is a merchandise area that is before you go through security and actually get on the grounds, but I could not recall if I had to show my ticket to someone before I got that far. My guess is that I did, but I just cannot recall.



Does anyone here know? The merchandise building I am thinking of is circled in the (admittedly not very good image below). The security checkpoint/main gate is the big building right below the circled building.

    Yes you do have to have a ticket and get by security to get to the fan shop.

    Unless it changed from 2013 then yes you can! Its more of a souvenir stand and not a shop like the big one inside the gates at that entrance or the main one by the clubhouse but they have the standard items at that one.

    Yes that is the one I was remembering! I knew it was before the big security checkpoint, but I could not recall if I had to show a badge at the gate. It sounds like your recollection was that you did not.



    I recall it being pretty small it had most everything you could get in the big shop.
  • tjetskitjetski Members Posts: 698 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Yes of course there are stands outside the gates but not nearly the same. In order to get to the main souvenir shop you have to enter. I went last year and can easily say the items are not comparable.

    What day did you go? I went saturday/sunday so even in the big shops a lot of items already sold out but i didnt have trouble getting some of the more regular basic items. I gotta assume these stands will have a lot to choose from during the practice rounds (albeit not as much as the main inside shops) but then again most people who buy merch are the dealers and first time visitors who usually only go practice rounds so im sure thats why everything gets bought up early in the week.

    If anyone doesn't have on-site access to Masters gear, this is a site that a bunch of us have used and it's official Masters Gear, obviously with Augusta's approval~

    yeah thats a great site and have bought a few things from them over the years, never understood why or how they dont have a competitor they seem to charge such a large upcharge on standard items that i have wondered why someone else hasnt made their own masters merch shop and chosen to make $10 on a hat instead of $20, im assuming mmogolf has some sort of deal/connection with ANGC.

    Someone involved has gotten permission/agreement with Augusta as that is all Official Masters Gear-



    I've gotta believe that Augusta is gettin a piece though that is just a guess because as I said, I've never spoken to either member about it, because of the "upcharge" that you speak of along with, well, it's friggin ANGC, lol. If you take a leak and it's got "Augusta Green" in it and you publicize it as "Official Masters urine," you're gettin a letter.



    I was always goin to ask the member(actually two) at our club but never remembered to, lol



    Stay Well My Friend,

    Thanks for the reply Richard, that all makes sense and is what i assumed what was going on. I always browsed their site/auctions and when i finally got to go to the Masters a couple of years ago i was expecting prices similar to MMOgolf and was kind of shocked that inside the gates the prices were much lower, of course i know they charge and upcharge but makes sense they can charge more since they have a connection with the club. I kind of like that because it adds even more to the experience of being there since you can buy a lot merchandise for about half what it goes for online.

    Richard is right - Augusta Chronicle app is great. Tons of stuff and great photos throughout the tourney.



    Got a really cool black pullover from MMO on sale last year - if it's not too hot, hope to wear it next Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday!!!!!!!!



    Already fretting over merchandise and the need for restraint, especially since I will likely end up funding my daughter's purchases as well - thank goodness the food will be cheap. Need to pick up extra memory card tomorrow, just in case. Plan on getting front row video of Jack at the Par 3.

    Thanks for all the help. The friend who is asking does not have any tickets, but is going to be in that part of Georgia on the Monday and Tuesday of the tournament. He is probably going to try and get tickets there, but was wondering about buying merchandise if he isn't able to get a ticket.

    2 questions - I'll be there Saturday and Sunday.



    1. Will the masters caddy slouch hats sell out by Saturday morning?



    2. How much do they cost? That site says $50-60.

    Everything on that MMO site is double or more the cost of what it actually is inside the gates of Augusta National. Someone is making a huge profit...

  • avgjoeavgjoe Members Posts: 4,999
    I doubt it.... at least for common items that they sell every year (not high end shirts and such). they have so much stock it's unreal. in case they do sell out you can always find one at mmo, ebay, or here. and the slouch caddy hats are $20 (or were in 2012)

    They don't have anything to do with AGNC. They have tickets to Berkman's and run back and forth picking up items as orders come in. That's why their site says"if the item is in stock" we ship it. They don't buy anything until you pay for it so hope AGNC has it. They even flip the Cameron items if they can get them
