Masters 2014: What to bring and what to leave at home


News 12 This Morning / April 7, 2014

Augusta, Ga. (WRDW) -- If you're heading to Augusta National for a little golf this week, you'll need to make sure you bring a few things, and leave a few others at home.

Many patrons want to capture that memorable moment walking on the serene green fairways or snapping a picture of that famous golfer, but you're limited. Patrons are only allowed to bring cameras Monday through Wednesday (practice rounds) and after that, cameras are prohibited.

Throughout the entire week, cellphones are not allowed onto the course along with any form of radio, TV, or pager.

Other prohibited items include:

•Bags, Backpacks, Packages
*No purses larger than 10"W x 10"H x 12"D
•Weapons of any kind (regardless of permit)
•Alcoholic beverages
•Beverage containers/Coolers
•Flags/Banners/Signs
•Folding armchairs or stools
•Strollers

With the chance of rain today, many patrons will be carrying umbrellas to the course. Those are allowed but be ready for a little longer wait to get into the gates because of added security measures.

As for what you can take out of Augusta National, that list is a little more lenient.

From souvenirs to photos during practice rounds, nothing compares to the memories of being on the world's biggest golf stage.

A Pimento cheese sandwich might cost you a buck fifty, and a seamless Masters hat might run you about 20 dollars but the memories, well...those are priceless.
