Watching The Masters On TV

Host a Masters Viewing Party

Gather friends and fellow golf enthusiasts for a day of excitement and camaraderie. Whether you're an avid golfer or just enjoy the thrill of a major sporting event, creating the perfect atmosphere for your guests is key to ensuring an unforgettable experience. From planning the menu to setting up the viewing area, let's delve into the essential steps to make your watch party a hole-in-one success.

Pick a Venue

If you want to host the party at your own house, make sure it is big enough to accommodate all of your guests. If you're expecting a big crowd, also make sure to hide any fragile items so they don't break. 

Perhaps your home is too small for your guest count. That's okay! You can rent an event venue or see if a friend would be willing to have the party at their house. 

Decide on a Date & Time

Typically, sporting event viewing parties are held on the final day of the event. In the case of the 2024 Augusta Masters, that would be Sunday, April 14. Hosting the party around the 4th tournament round adds excitement because everyone gets to find out the final scores of the players. However, if Sunday doesn't work for you and you still want to host a party, then feel free to schedule it on a different day.

Sports parties often follow a casual, all-day come-and-go style. The bigger the guest list, the more casual it tends to be. Of course, as the host, you can make your party as casual or formal as you would like. Either way, specify a start and end time on your invites so that you don't have people arriving while you are still getting things set up. 

Establish a Dress Code

It's usually safe to assume that a sports watch party is going to be casual dress. But encouraging guests to get a little more festive with their wardrobe choice can double the fun. Why not invite your guests to wear the Masters green and yellow? In fact, Yatta Golf has just the right polo for your party- the Augusta Polo!

Plan the Food & Drinks

Your guests will come expecting food. If you don't think you will be able to prepare food for all of your guests, you could ask guests to bring a dish to share. You could create a sign-up sheet if you're worried about there being too much of one type of food and not enough of another.

Typical sports party food includes pizza, chicken wings, nachos, fruit & veggie platters, chips & dip, and other easy finger foods. These are pretty safe food options, especially if you're going to have a large crowd. If you want to add a little Augusta theme to the food, consider serving peaches, peanuts, pecans, fried chicken, cornbread, and/or pimento cheese— all foods that Georgia is known for. 

Make sure you plan enough food for your guests and bring it out gradually throughout the party. It would be awful to run out of food in the first couple of hours.

Traditionally, beer and some non-alcoholic sodas are served at a sports party. Again, you can lean towards the Georgia theme by serving drinks that Georgia is known for. For example, the Scarlet O-Hara Cocktail is Georgia’s signature drink. You could also serve Sweet-Tea and/or Coca-Cola, which is based in Georgia.

Scarlet O'Hara Cocktail Recipe:
- 2 oz Southern Comfort*
- dash of lime juice
- 6 oz cranberry juice
- lime wedge
*Make it a mocktail by replacing Southern Comfort with a non-alcoholic whiskey or barley tea. The flavor will be a little different but you could alternatively substitute the alcohol with a soda like Orange Fanta or Ginger Ale.

Pizza, Burger, Chicken Wings, & Beer

Arrange Child-Care

Decide ahead of time if kids are or are not allowed, then include that on your invites. You know your guests best, but a sports party serving alcohol may not be the best environment for kiddos.

If you decide to allow kids at your party, consider having a separate room or table set up for them to play. Include age-appropriate games/toys, snacks, activity-books, and/or a movie/TV. Make sure responsible adults are checking on them.

Come Up with Activities

Liven the party with some additional activities. For example, at the start of the game, gather your guests' predictions of the final golf lineup. Perhaps offer prizes to those who guess correctly. Hint: Yatta Golf's Telos Tees would make excellent prizes!

You could also create bingo cards for the tournament so people can watch and listen for a chance at a bingo prize. During the ads, either include games involving the ads or set up other party games around the house/venue. 

Setup & Decor

Green And Yellow Balloons

Before the day of the party, test out your setup. Make sure the TV is large enough, you have ample seating, and traffic can flow easily from the food to the TV. Also ensure that you have enough space to store all of your party food before and during the big day.

Decorations create a vibrant atmosphere that boosts the excitement and enjoyment for everyone attending your party. Consider Masters green and yellow golf-themed decor. If you want to get extra fancy, you could display some magnolias and azaleas, which Augusta National Golf Club is known for.

Send the Invites

As soon as you know your party date and time, venue, kid policy, and whether you're going potluck style or not, create the invites. Try and have them sent out 2 weeks before the party. 

As the Augusta Masters unfolds, remember it's more than just a game—it's about creating lasting memories. Whether you're sporting your best golf attire or lounging in comfort, make this year's tournament unforgettable with our Masters party tips.
