– April 2018 at Augusta National Golf Club Club, Augusta, Georgia
This event has finished, please come back again soon
If you’re looking to take a swing at some golf betting, there really is no better place to start than the coveted US Masters, an event bet on by golf enthusiasts and irregular bettors alike. The Augusta Masters takes place in April of every year and, unlike other major championships in professional golf, it is held at the same location each year at Augusta National Golf Club.
US Masters golf betting is a growing phenomenon which continues to swell in popularity year on year. The tournament has the smallest amount of starters in any major, with between 90-100 playing at Augusta each year, making US Masters golf betting markets more narrow than other majors. Prices tend to be slim. Previous winners of the Augusta Masters are allowed to re-enter the competition as many times as they like, so the field is often saturated with golfers that are years past their prime. This makes the field bet pretty redundant when it comes to the Masters.
As a result of this always expect younger golfers that play well in the weeks preceding The Augusta Masters (keep an eye on the PGA tour) to shorten in price. Pay further attention to big names that play well in the week before The Masters. This rule of thumb applies to other tournaments that you incorporate as a part of your long term golf betting strategy.
The Augusta Masters was started by amateur champion Bobby Jones and investment banker Clifford Roberts who both banded together to build the course, which opened in 1932. The tournament was first played in 1934 and became immeasurably popular quite quickly, due to Jones’s popularity and connections within the game. The first US Masters golf tournament began on March 22nd 1934, and beginning in 1940, it was scheduled to take place every year during the first full week of April.

Augusta National Golf Club has changed significantly over the years but certain traditions remain diligently guarded. Membership is strictly by invite only. Since 1949, all members receive a green jacket, as does the winner of each Masters tournament. The winner of the tournament must return his jacket to the clubhouse one year after his victory, where it is stored with other champions’ jackets in a designated cloakroom. A Champions Dinner evening takes place prior to the masters, at which the most recent Masters winner gets to select the menu for a gathering of previous winners. Some bookmakers will offer the winner’s menu choice as a specials market. Since 1960 a social contest has been played on the Wednesday prior to the Masters tournament on the par-3 course.
