There are some issues money simply cannot acquire, but meals at the Masters is not just one of them. In fact, with concession selling prices rolled back farther than any golfing-ball proposal, a few sq. foods at the match will cost you very little a lot more than a sleeve of golfing balls.

But what should really you purchase?

That’s a challenging selection, the patron’s equivalent of a participant seeking to pull the correct club in blustery situations on the par-3 12th.

Good point we’ve acquired a culinary caddie. James Syhabout, the chef and owner of two-Michelin star Commis, in Oakland, Calif., is also a golf junky, with a placing stroke as wonderful-tuned as his palate. How ought to you devote your food income in a working day at the Masters? We questioned Syhabout for his read through.


The most significant meal of the working day is not a food without the need of a cup of Joe. With your refreshing-brewed coffee ($1.50), Syhabout suggests asking for a cup of ice to battle any possible humidity: a caffeinated jolt with something to neat you off, just in circumstance. For your key dish, Syhabout suggests it’s gotta be the sausage biscuit ($2), “because when you are in the South, you can not move up pork involving some biscuits.”  


On the concession menu, two sandwiches — egg salad and pimento cheese ($1.50 every) — are mentioned along with the Masters brand. That’s the club’s way of telling you that they are classics. To Syhabout, it is also the signal of an easy final decision: stick with tradition, he says.

Each and every club places its own twist on the club sandwich. And since there’s no club fairly like Augusta National, Syhabout claims he’d go for the Masters club ($3), “to see what will make it exclusive.” Spoiler warn: this version is not a toasted triple-decker, cut into quarters and secured by toothpicks. It’s a much more typical-seeking sandwich, with turkey, ham and cheese on a hamburger-style bun. As a backup, Syhabout implies tacking on one more Southern staple: the BBQ sandwich ($3).


Just after going MIA in 2022, the Ga peach ice cream sandwich ($2.50) is back on the menu in 2023. “I’ll consider three,” Syhabout claims. In addition two packs of Advil (.50 cents each) “to support with the hangover the upcoming early morning.” That’s suitable, the beer is just as superior of a deal as the food items.
