Feel like splurging? The most expensive items on the Masters menu cost just $3, like this barbecue sandwich made from “genuine smoked pork,” according to the label. Served cold in previous years, heat lamps now keep this lunch option warm (how progressive!).

Wait, are vegetarians even welcome at the Augusta National Golf Club? This meat-free menu item proves there’s no specific policy discriminating against them (at least at the concession stands). Perhaps money really is the great equalizer.
