The only place official Masters merchandise is available is at the merchandise stores near the entrances to Augusta National Golf Club. I would recommend getting to the stores early before your favorite hat or shirt is sold out. The Masters offers a free service that will allow you to check your bag of purchased merchandise so you don’t have to bring it with you on to the course. You can also ship your new Masters swag back home immediately after purchase.
