Would you give up SEX to play 18 holes at Augusta National?

But what would YOU be prepared to do to walk the same hallowed fairways that greats of the game like Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Ben Hogan and Tiger Woods – to name just a handful – have taken divots out of?

Membership at Augusta National is notoriously not-for-sale, nor is there any sort of application process for would-be members.

The Time2Play website polled over 1 000 golfers and asked what they would do to play a round at Augusta National.

The most popular answer was ‘shave my head’ which garnered 43% of the vote (multiple options were available to respondents), followed by the 36% who would ‘stop drinking for a year’.

A full 9% said they would be prepared to have ‘no sex for a year’, while worryingly, 2% promised to ‘put their kids up for adoption’ in exchange for 18 holes!

If Augusta National was open to the public, how much would you be prepared to pay for a round?

The Time2Play study showed that those earning under $20 000 (R292 000) per annum would be willing to shell out an average of $388 (R5 700) for 18 holes.

It’s perhaps no surprise that those who earn more are willing to pay more.

Golfers earning over $100 000 (R1.46 million) per year said they would pay on average a whopping $3 189 (R47 000) for a single round.
