Believe it or not, the Masters is just around the corner. As providers of superior Masters packages, we couldn’t be more excited about the arrival of one of the world’s most prestigious sporting events. If you have been keeping up with the Superior Executive Services blog, you know that we have covered a range of topics concerning the world’s greatest golf tournament. From Tips for the Masters to Fun Facts About the Masters and Augusta National, we hope that we have stoked your excitement, as well as prepared you for the big event with some helpful information.
The atmosphere at Augusta National is truly special. It is rich with history, tradition, excitement, and something that is entirely unique to the event. In an effort to better explain the uniqueness of this event as well as prepare you, in today’s blog, we are going to look at two aspects of the event that often go unnoticed—food and merchandise.
Top Food Items at the Masters
For those who attend world-class sporting events regularly, one thing that can be quite annoying is the extortionate cost of food and drinks. This coupled with the price of good tickets can put a slight damper on the fun. This, however, is not something you have to worry about at the Masters. And what’s more is that not only are food and beverages affordable, but they are also delicious. Below are just a few of the food options at the Masters (all of these options are under $3!)
- Pimento Cheese Sandwich—For many people, the only reason they know of the pimento-cheese sandwich is because of the Masters. Those who have had the honor of trying it know that it lives up to the hype. Creamy cheese with red peppers squeezed in between two slightly sweet slices of bread.
- Egg Salad Sandwich At the Masters, this tried-and-true classic is everything you would want it to be. It’s got the perfect balance of ingredients and consistency. If you have written off egg salad sandwiches, ditch your expectations and give this Masters staple a try.
- Sausage Biscuit—Regarded by some as being the best option on the menu, the sausage biscuit is a breakfast special that is hard to beat, especially for the price. And if sausage isn’t your thing, give the chicken biscuit a try instead.
- The Ice Cream Sandwich—Troweled full of Georgia peach ice cream, this is a dessert you surely don’t want to miss. What makes this delectable treat so special is that it sells out quickly and isn’t always at every concession stand, so if you have an opportunity to try one, seize it!
Augusta National’s Merchandise Pavilion
With a reputation for being one of the hardest tickets to get in the world of sports, it’s wise to buy something to commemorate the special moment—and also buy something for lucky friends and family members. One thing that deters many people from entering the shop is the reliably long line. Some people even report queueing for hours. However, people often find that it’s worth the wait. If you’re looking for souvenirs head straight for the caps, flags, t-shirts, markers, and pitch-mark repairers.
