    And I can say with 100% certainty that I know of a CPC member that does the same or at least did for quite some time. I don’t think he has ever posted however.



    Remember that a lot of the guys that belong to these clubs now are in the tech world. They grew up on the internet and they use it like everyone else.


    So there is this member of ANGC by the name of Bill Gates. I hear he know a bit about computers.




    I hear Bill Gates prefers Reddit though. :/

    This thread makes me laugh!!! I don't think any Augusta member has ever even been on this site let alone joined. Members at the top level clubs tend to be very private so that people don't harass them for invites and ask dumb questions about the place.




    How the **** do you know? Members of prestigious clubs are people just like me and you. They like talking golf like me and you. I wouldn't be surprised if perhaps a member has posted on this site. It is a very large community after all.




    Your right. I don't know anything about prestigious clubs and I have never met any members from those clubs. I will let you get back to posting with the elite members on here. Post your pictures when you get the Augusta invite from posting in this thread!!!




    Good idea to make fun of other people when you don’t know the difference between “your” and “you’re”.

    Based on his GHIN I’d guess Peachtree and Wade Hampton.

    I'm reasonably certain his son is a on here. I wouldn't be surprised in the least if some ANGC members were on here from time to time. I believe two major champions, several other Tour pros and one current MLB star are on here quite often. At least, if you believe their Twitter feeds.

    I know a few golfers who are on the extreme end of the wealthy scale. They may not be on this board but they live their lives just like the rest of us. It's just that their toys cost more. They surf the web reading golf info quite often and they love to debate PGA Tour issues.

    Pretty sure Augusta Country Club when he is home. Also, I know he is familiar with the site but don't know if he's an active poster. He certainly wouldn't identify himself if he were...

    The October to may dates are correct. Members and staff will not give specifics on numbers. Rounds, initiation, members etc... I have played 5 times and I can say that it’s probably busier than you think.

    I'm sure if someone on WRX was a member, they would NEVER let it be known.



    The course closes about a week or two after the Masters and doesn't reopen until October. The grasses on the course die in the summer and can't handle the southern heat. It makes me wonder how the course always looks pristine on Google satellite view. I'm sure the powers that be have arranged something with the Alphabet company.



    Members can play October to March (the course closes to prep for the Masters) and reports are that on any given weekday there are 3-4 members out on the course.




    Course closes in May the week before Memorial Day, but the October date for open is correct. Course doesn't close for prep as members have access to play even on the Sunday before practice rounds begin (DCP day). By that point though, they will be playing with the pros and/or their families, other guests and other members. I know Bubba had his wife playing on the Sunday prior a couple years ago with one of the members.

    I have only played once but I wouldn't say the course was empty the day I was there. I know several members, one well, the rest socially, and as others have indicated, this is a bucket list membership for them, they have other prominent memberships where they play their "daily" golf. I'm very happy I had the opportunity to play, it's a life long memory and if I never play it again that is fine too. I will say that having played now I have zero desire to go and watch the Masters in person.

    Anyone know if the guys who win a Green Jacket actually become full members or is there another category for them? Do they pay like the others?

    They’re not considered members, just past Masters Champions.

    I believe Jack was granted membership. I'm not 100% sure this is correct, but I thought he is the only one considered a member.

    I worked for two gentlemen who were members.



    The Masters was an opportunity to entertain friends, business associates and customers.



    Generally, a large home in Augusta was rented for Masters week.



    Company executives and business guests stayed there during practice rounds and the first 2 rounds of the tournament. Family and close friends for Sat and Sunday.



    Biggest plum was members could take 3 guests out to play the course Mondays after the tournament.

    Which is almost membership, as you are invited to the tournament every year, and you get full access to the course if you are playing in the tournament.



    Again, though, doubtful they are playing *that* often, as they likely have other things keeping them busy.



    Not to mention, while it is certainly a great course, and a great tournament course, would you really want to play a course with greens that are that difficult every day, even if you could?

    First rule of Aug Nat: you don’t talk about Aug Nat.




    This. I think they would instantly pull your membership if you ever posted something in WRX (or anywhere else) about it.
    Clubs are fluid

    Yes, Arnie was a member and Jack still is. Both became members long after they won their last respective Masters. Their membership is based on the same criteria of the other members rather than their accomplishment of winning a green jacket, although I’m sure it didn’t hurt their chances. They were not immediately members after they won their first green jacket.

    There’s a huge difference between being a member and a past champion. For example, you’d never see a past champion that is not a member at the annual jamboree, not to mention several other differences. Access is no where close to the same. And the greens aren’t at tournament speed year round according to a friend of mine who has played numerous practice rounds and in the actual tournament.

    This is true. The greens were running around 9 or 10 when I played it. Nowhere near the tournament speed.

    I have no idea how stuff like this works, so please excuse my stupid questions.



    If the members use the course socially to invite guests to, I assume that they rent a house or something in the area? Is there lodging for members/guests on the grounds? If that's the case, these guys/gals all fly in on their privates jets to play a round with a few guests and then head home? (None of those questions are meant to be sarcasm or cynical. I'm curious about how these people live!)

    There are 10 large cabins on property available for members and guests to stay in as an option. Some will stay off-site, but I would guess that a decent number stay in the cabins. Obviously, during tournament week or during the big club events, there aren't enough and people will stay off property, but on your regular weekend, you would see most, if staying overnight, in a cabin. Although, there are others who just travel in and travel out for the day.

    '



    Today there are the 10 cabins. However, per this article, there are also rooms in the clubhouse so there are 105 beds onsite.

    During Billy Payne's tenure, it was mentioned this was one of the things he wanted to address. He discussed expanding onsite housing to support more members being able to stay onsite and possibly players during the tourney.
