Priciest Ticket For Any Sporting Event

If you�ve ever thought about taking that bucket list journey to Augusta, Georgia, to check out the golf spectacle of the year, you had better start saving. Next week marks the first major championship of the year and it isn�t just the most exciting week of the golf season, but the most expensive event to attend for just one day.

The Masters is the most expensive ticket in all of sports, according to a report by the Atlanta-Journal Constitution, topping out at $4,486 if you want to see all four days of tournament action. A one-day pass can run anywhere from $1,215 to $1,786, depending on the day. Even a practice round during Masters week can cost you up to $1,118 (as the AJC points out, that�s as much as a four day pass to the PGA Championship).

The good news about how expensive it is to hit up the Masters is that once you�re inside the ropes, and past the Augusta gate, your wallet lightens tremendously (as long as you avoid the merchandise tent, which you probably won�t do). Beers cost just $3 (and you get to keep the cup, which has the Masters logo and the year on it) and the famous pimento cheese sandwiches are only $1.50.

By comparison a ticket to the Super Bowl costs just $1,210. But if you want the hottest ticket in all of sports, you will start planning a trip to the Masters.
