According to Mike Walker at Golf.com, “what gets the most raves from golf fans attending the Masters for the first time isn’t the lush fairways, or the sparkling white-sand bunkers, or even the azaleas that are in full bloom, but it is the Masters concession prices that really blow first-timers away: they’re the best bargain in sports.”
