I talked to a member last year at Berckman's Place for about 10 minutes.  He said he plays the course 5 - 6 times a year and always with guests.

Iknow of two members at ANGC that at least peruse the site and one masters champion who peruses as well
And I can say with 100% certainty that I know of a CPC member that does the same or at least did for quite some time. I don’t think he has ever posted however.  

Remember that a lot of the guys that belong to these clubs now are in the tech world. They grew up on the internet and they use it like everyone else.  
So there is this member of ANGC by the name of Bill Gates. I hear he know a bit about computers.

I hear Bill Gates prefers Reddit though. :/

This thread makes me laugh!!! I don't think any Augusta member has ever even been on this site let alone joined. Members at the top level clubs tend to be very private so that people don't harass them for invites and ask dumb questions about the place.

How the hell do you know?  Members of prestigious clubs are people just like me and you.  They like talking golf like me and you.  I wouldn't be surprised if perhaps a member has posted on this site.  It is a very large community after all.

Your right. I don't know anything about prestigious clubs and I have never met any members from those clubs. I will let you get back to posting with the elite members on here. Post your pictures when you get the Augusta invite from posting in this thread!!!

Good idea to make fun of other people when you don’t know the difference between “your” and “you’re”.

Based on his GHIN I’d guess Peachtree and Wade Hampton.

I'm reasonably certain his son is a on here.  I wouldn't be surprised in the least if some ANGC members were on here from time to time.  I believe two major champions, several other Tour pros and one current MLB star are on here quite often.  At least, if you believe their Twitter feeds.

I know a few golfers who are on the extreme end of the wealthy scale.  They may not be on this board but they live their lives just like the rest of us.  It's just that their toys cost more.  They surf the web reading golf info quite often and they love to debate PGA Tour issues.

Pretty sure Augusta Country Club when he is home. Also, I know he is familiar with the site but don't know if he's an active poster. He certainly wouldn't identify himself if he were...

The October to may dates are correct. Members and staff will not give specifics on numbers. Rounds, initiation, members etc... I have played 5 times and I can say that it’s probably busier than you think.

I'm sure if someone on WRX was a member, they would NEVER let it be known.

The course closes about a week or two after the Masters and doesn't reopen until October. The grasses on the course die in the summer and can't handle the southern heat. It makes me wonder how the course always looks pristine on Google satellite view. I'm sure the powers that be have arranged something with the Alphabet company.

Members can play October to March (the course closes to prep for the Masters) and reports are that on any given weekday there are 3-4 members out on the course.

Course closes in May the week before Memorial Day, but the October date for open is correct.  Course doesn't close for prep as members have access to play even on the Sunday before practice rounds begin (DCP day).  By that point though, they will be playing with the pros and/or their families, other guests and other members.  I know Bubba had his wife playing on the Sunday prior a couple years ago with one of the members.

I have only played once but I wouldn't say the course was empty the day I was there.  I know several members, one well, the rest socially, and as others have indicated, this is a bucket list membership for them, they have other prominent memberships where they play their "daily" golf.  I'm very happy I had the opportunity to play, it's a life long memory and if I never play it again that is fine too.  I will say that having played now I have zero desire to go and watch the Masters in person.

Anyone know if the guys who win a Green Jacket actually become full members or is there another category for them? Do they pay like the others?

They’re not considered members, just past Masters Champions.

I believe Jack was granted membership.  I'm not 100% sure this is correct, but I thought he is the only one considered a member.
