Can I use the Augusta National logo for decorations?

Augusta National takes its logo copyright very seriously. If you find products with their logo somewhere other than the gift shop in Augusta, it’s probably a knockoff. 

Out of respect to Augusta National, I have not included any decorations to print or purchase with the logo on them.

Golf Party Decoration Ideas 

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.

Fun Golf Party Favors

For fun, give your guest a stress golf ball as a party favor. Perfect for watching an intense playoff. They could also use these on a stressful workday.

How to make a Masters golf 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

What To Wear To A Masters Party

A perfect choice to wear to a Masters party is, of course, a green jacket.

The caddie uniform is an iconic part of the Masters. If you want to read more, visit Augusta National’s article Masters 101: The Caddie Jumpsuit

If casual attire is your style, then get a My Green Jacket Is In The Wash t-shirt.

What Do Women 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 Augustan, I think Angela nails the three types of patrons and how they dress. Local women are a collector of baseball-style Masters hats. I have some dating back to when I was in high school. Yes, they are over 30 years old. They always stay in style. 

  1. Serious Golfers: You can tell the serious golfers right off the bat. They have cute golf skirts, polos, pullover sweaters, and sneakers on. They don’t care about anything but watching the tournament.
  2. Locals: These people have been to the Masters more times than you can count. They’re rocking cute chino shorts, a sweater, and likely an old Masters hat. It is obvious this isn’t their first rodeo, and they’re likely there on business.
  3. 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 and 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.

Is there a dress code at the Masters

The Masters website 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, there is an understood dress code for most patrons. 

  1. Dress like you are a golf pro
  2. Khakis and a golf polo are always good choices.
  3. Never wear high heels! It’s a dead giveaway that you know nothing about golf or redflag that it’s your first time at the tournament
  4. Ladies should wear an appropriate length dress or skirt for walking up hills and sitting on bleachers.
  5. Don’t wear jeans
  6. 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. 

Masters Party Menu

Here is a great idea for your Masters party menu. Recreate the concession stand menu. I promise, next to the last putt into the 18th green’s hole, the food you serve will be the most memorable part of your party!
