WHY THROW A MASTERS VIEWING PARTY
Being at the Masters is an experience of a lifetime. It can only be understood if you have walked the course, experience the sights, sounds, and ambiance. The prestige and honor intertwine your mind as you observe the top players in the world performing on a pristine canvas called Augusta National.
This year that canvas will only be experienced by players, caddies and camera crews. The opportunity to enjoy watching the tournament is through the eyes of a camera and will still yield a few days of golf to remember for a lifetime. The most intriguing part of the tournament this year is the playing of the Masters for the first time in November. We still have some leaves on our trees in November but the grass is turning brown and there are very few flowers that bloom. It will be interesting to see what backdrop the ground crew will create for a fall tournament.
Creating a Masters viewing party for your golf enthusiast friends will be so much fun. It will be easy with these simple decorating tips, ideas for what to wear, and recipes to help you serve traditional foods from the Masters.

IS THERE A DRESS CODE AT THE MASTERS
The Masters web site does not say much about attire other than “Appropriate clothing and shoes should be worn at all times. Golf shoes with metal spikes are not permitted.” However, these is an understood dress code for most patrons.
- Dress like you are a golf pro
- Khakis and a golf polo are always good choices
- Never wear high heels! It’s a dead giveaway you know nothing about golf or it’s your first time at the tournament
- Ladies should wear an appropriate length dress or skirts for walking up hills and sitting on bleachers
- Don’t wear jeans
- The weather changes from cool mornings to hot afternoons for most years so wear a jacket that is easy to fold up into your bag.
WHAT TO WEAR TO A MASTERS PARTY
What Women Should Wear To The Masters
Angela from the Thrifty Pineapple shares great tips and ideas for women attending the Masters. She also gives 5 Things I Definitely Recommend Wearing/Bringing to the tournament.
As a local myself, I think Angela nails the three types of patrons and how they dress. Locals are a collector of hats, I have some dating back from when I was in highschool. Yes, they are over 30 years old.
- Serious Golfers: You can tell the serious golfers right off the bat. They have their cute golf skirts, polos and/or pullover and sneakers on. They don’t care about anything but watching the tournament.
- Locals: These people have been to the Masters more times than you can count. They’re rocking cute chino shorts, sweater and likely an old Masters hat. This isn’t their first rodeo and they’re likely there on business.
- Stylish Cuties: When walking through the parking lot I was like, “dang it, I’m for sure way overdressed.” However, as the day went on I saw more an more people dressed like me. There were a lot of Lilly dresses and a lot of seersucker, most of which were dressed down with hats or sneakers. Don’t get me wrong, I did get some strange looks from serious golfers, but we were both there for different reasons.
Greet your Masters viewing party guest with party decorations to set the stage as soon as they get to your door.
HOW TO MAKE A MASTERS WREATH
- To make your own wreath start with a simple wreath from your local craft store.
- Add some Masters traditional colors with green foliage and yellow flowers.
- Next, head to your local thrift store and purchase some kids size golf clubs. I got these for $7 at our local Goodwill.
- Wire the golf clubs in an X pattern across the wreath
- Hot glue some golf balls on the bottom corner and hang
CAN I USE THE AUGUSTA NATIONAL LOGO FOR DECORATIONS?
Augusta National takes their logo copyright very seriously. If you find products with it on somewhere other than the gift shop in Augusta it’s probably a knock off.

MASTERS PARTY IDEAS DECORATIONS
The Masters golf tournament has distinctive green, white and yellow colors that you can use in decorating your home for your viewing party.
Next, fill your home with the classic pink azaleas that Augusta is known for. Fresh azaleas are not always easy to purchase so opt for silk flowers.
ORDER YOUR MASTERS JOURNAL
Be sure and order this year’s Masters Journal. It’ a collectors item that you will enjoy reading again and again.
The Masters Journal is the official Tournament program, which includes Masters stories written by some of golf’s best writers. The publication items are Tournament features, biographies of the field players, and a hole-by-hole description by a past winner.
WHAT FOOD IS SERVED AT THE MASTERS?
One of my favorite parts about spending the day on the course is the food Augusta National has to offer during the Masters! The prices are just unbelievable and the food is always excellent.
