The cost of a Masters badge is increasing by $50, according to the Augusta Chronicle.
Masters patrons who receive series (weekly) badges were told this week that the cost will increase to $250. It is the first increase in three years, when the price went up $25.
The entire process will be completed online, as was the club's online lottery to purchase daily tickets for tournament rounds.
Practice-round tickets will increase in cost in 2012 as well. Tickets for Monday through Wednesday rounds will cost $50 – a $14 increase for Monday and Tuesday and a $9 hike for Wednesday.
