How much would you pay to join Augusta National?

2023 3M Open

Membership has its privilege, and there may be no more desirable place to be in the club than to be among the green jackets at Augusta National Golf Club. How much would Masters participants be willing to pay to join? That’s the latest question of the 2024 Golfweek Masters Survey.

The responses ran the gamut from no interest to willing to fork over into the millions and everywhere in between. More pros than expected were non-plussed at the idea of joining captains of industry in the roll call of one of the most exclusive clubs in the world but there were several whose eyes widened and broke into a smile at the thought. Keegan Bradley said it would be “the coolest thing ever” to be a member while others such as Padraig Harrington and Matt Kuchar felt that if they had to pay to join it would diminish the honor. A couple pros noted that they would have to check with their wife, with 2008 Masters champ Zach Johnson declaring, “my number is a lot higher than hers.”

Perhaps Harris English said it best: “People who think about how much they will have to pay probably aren’t going to get invited.” On to the answers below…

I could care less to join there. I would have no desire to join there. If I can join one club for the rest of my life, Augusta National wouldn’t be it.

I wouldn’t. I’d be too afraid to break the rules.

I travel so much as it is that I just want to be home. Hopefully I’ll be able to play there every April when I win.

I wouldn’t pay too much but I’d pay…
