The Masters Golf Tournament by Ian Chalmers, CEO and Founder of GEF
Hello, my name is Ian Chalmers and I have been providing once in a lifetime Masters golf experiences
for private individuals and corporate groups since 1994.
Augusta National has changed tremendously over the years, and so has the event itself. Most recently
the main entrance was moved from Washington Rd to Gate 9 off of Berckmans Rd, and a lottery was
instituted to give a small number of lucky fans the opportunity to purchase Masters badges directly
from the National. Visit Masters.com “Tickets”

have the freedom to accommodate anything from one-night to an entire week in Augusta. Another

savings on food and beverage usually allow us to offer this luxurious option at or below the cost of
Like lodging and dining, we offer flexible options for attending the Masters. You can see a practice
round for as little as $329 or make it a truly unforgettable experience and spend a long weekend with
the best golfers and greatest course in the world. Our Masters packages are available here
, but please
contact me with any questions or ideas and we can create the perfect Masters experience, customized
just for you.
Hope to see you in April!
