Flying a Private Jet Charter to the Masters Golf Tournament


March 28, 2022

Jordan Brown

The Masters Golf Tournament in Augusta is one of the most renowned golf tournaments in the world, captivating thousands and setting their sights on the Augusta National Golf Club. While thousands of people will be traveling privately to Augusta to be a part of history, flying privately makes it simple for you to access the iconic event without stressing about fellow travelers or commercial airlines. Private jets at the Masters 2022 are going to be in high demand, so make sure you know what to expect and plan your trip accordingly.

The Masters Golf Tournament

This year marks the 86th annual Masters Tournament in Augusta, Georgia. Starting in 1934, this iconic event is full of history and tradition. The Masters Tournament is the only major to be held consistently at the same course every year as the event is held by the Augusta National Golf Club on a course that doubles as a former plant nursery. With its colorful history, the event is considered to be one of the most prestigious tournaments in the sport.

The competition is divided into four rounds of 18 holes each. Winners of the tournament are awarded with a multi-million dollar cash prize, a trademark green jacket and gain an automatic invitation to the next three championship events this year as well as a lifetime invitation to participate in the Masters again.

Closest Airports for Private Flights to the Masters

There are multiple options for airports to fly into for private flights to the Masters. Your choice may depend on multiple factors, like distance from the tournament and size of the airport. When booking a private jet charter to the Masters Golf Tournament, you should consider these key airports.

Daniel Field Airport

Daniel Field is the nearest private charter airport to the Augusta National Golf Club, only a 10-minute drive away. However, Daniel Field has two runways that are considerably smaller than other airports, which may limit some travelers depending on the size of their jet. The airport is complete with a private terminal and flight-based operator (FBO) services to accommodate travelers.

Augusta Regional Airport

Private chartering to Augusta Regional Airport is one of the best airports for Augusta, GA. The city-owned airport has a private FBO terminal and two dedicated private jet runways. The airport is a bit farther than Daniel Field, but it is only 20 minutes away from the course and has the capacity and runway size to handle larger private jets and considerable air traffic. Time slots may be needed for Augusta Regional Airport, which may cause delays. Speak to one of our representatives on how to book here.

Aiken Municipal Airport

Taking a private jet to Aiken Municipal Airport is another option. With a 5500 foot runway, Aiken Municipal Airport gives you the ultimate flexibility in aircraft choice. From the largest luxury jets, to the smaller high-performance turboprops, you’ll be able to arrive at Aiken in comfort. To get to Augusta from here, all you need to do is go west.
