History (Year Opened)
Augusta National was founded in 1932. The golf course stands on a former plant nursery and plantation. Bobby Jones designed the course with the goal of creating a world-class winter golf course native in Georgia.
Former US President Dwight Eisenhower was invited to Augusta National. The first Masters was held in 1934, and its first club professional was Ed Dudley, with 15 wins on PGA.
Below is the latest Augusta National Membership Cost.
GREEN FEE (BASE FEE)
|Green Fee||$350 - $500|
Green Jacket Membership
|Green Jacket (Invitation Only)||$100,000 to $300,000|
To be a “green jacket”, membership prices rumored to have been paid cost between $100,000 to $300,000. Membership to the National is also by invitation only. Augusta National is no longer an all-male club, as two female members were accepted close to a decade ago.
Annual dues cost $30,000. Once a member is given the literal “green jacket”, they’re required to wear it during tournaments. The jackets are to be returned if they’re not used, except for winners of Masters, who can keep the jacket for a limited amount of time before they get collected.
Green Fee (Base Fee)
The green fee for Augusta National is $350, but this estimation was in 2018. During the week when Masters is held, it bumps up to $500.
