Some early reports focused on limiting ticket sales to 20,000 each day and then a few reports mentioned the prices had gone up. Last year, the price of a ticket was $30. The price for this year’s event is now, $44. A ticket for the final round on Sunday will set you back $49.
Is it really that expensive? The golf tournament is held once a year, you get at least six hours of entertainment and I’ve yet to mention Tiger Woods is playing.
Catching a game of footy at the MCG will set you back $43.50, a ticket to day one of last year’s Boxing Day Test Match costs $51 and a seat at the singles finals at the Australian Open Tennis last January would have set you back $289.90!
Aussie Golfer can see that there may be an argument for paying Tiger the $3 million appearance fee but I cannot agree that $44 to see him play is expensive at all.
