01 There's a com­plete ban on mo­bile phones on the prop­erty and out­side the me­dia cen­tre. If you're spot­ted with a phone – even if it's in your pocket – you will be asked to leave the course. Plus, they have peo­ple in among the crowds watch­ing for any wrong­do­ing. 02 You're not al­lowed to run at Au­gusta Na­tional, which leads to quite an amus­ing scene when the gates open each day. 03 You're also not al­lowed to take any­one's foldup chair, even if it's been unat­tended for hours, so the ‘pa­trons' rush to their favourite spot at the start of each day to lay down their marker. 04 You're not per­mit­ted to sit down. 05 No sun­bathing or ly­ing down on the hal­lowed turf. 06 Don't even think about tak­ing branded goods to Au­gusta Na­tional as you won't be al­lowed to take them on the prop­erty. 07 The same goes for cool­ers or con­tain­ers of any kind. 08 No tip­ping is al­lowed at Au­gusta Na­tional – a rule that dates back to the days of co-founder Clif­ford Roberts, who didn't want mem­bers to be treated dif­fer­ently based on how much they tipped. 09 In terms of at­tire, you must al­ways wear shoes – bare feet aren't ac­cept­able. 10 Oh, and you can't wear your cap back­wards!!
