AUGUSTA, Ga. – An iconic food item will be missing at the 2022 Masters Tournament.
The Georgia peach ice cream sandwich, a famous sweet treat at Augusta National Golf Club, isn’t on the menu for this year’s event.
Jordan Eudey, who made the trip from Farmington, New Mexico, described the news as a “total bummer” on Monday afternoon.
A regular tournament, Eudey was looking forward to snagging the sandwich, which features a glob of peach ice cream between two sugar cookies.
“Actually, I saw it (Sunday) on Instagram,” Eudey said as he shook his head in disappointment.

“I came back a few years ago, came down (to the concession stand) and had an arm full of ’em – probably four or five of ’em for me and my father-in-law. We were just hammering ’em. It’s a total bummer.”
A worker at the concession stand near the massive leaderboard to the right of the opening hole said “quite a lot” of patrons have asked about the missing dessert and “can’t believe it’s gone.”
Despite the disappointment of some patrons, the worker said, all remains right in the world as long as the concession stand still sells the pimento cheese and egg salad sandwiches.

Those staples of the Masters remain $1.50.
“The pimento cheese is a classic,” said Zack Freedman, a Naples, Florida, native.
As Zack and his brother, Matt, emerged from the darkness of the concession stand building, their hands were filled with various items.
“We literally bought all of this for $29,” Matt said as he looked down at a slew of sandwiches and snacks in his hands.
“We had been told the food was reasonably priced. I was still surprised to see a sandwich for $1.50.”
The Masters Club, Matt’s “go-to” sandwich, rose from $2.50 to $3 in 2022, as did the cost of the other cold-cut sandwiches. Masters beer prices remain $5.
In her second trip to Augusta National, Linda Kortick remains amazed at the reasonable food prices. The Rhode Island native said, “it’s astonishing to see sandwiches for $1.50,” at a sporting event.
“This is $24 for two sandwiches, three barbecue sandwiches, three bottles of water, two bags of chips and a chocolate chip cookie,” Kortick said with a smile.
Like Eudey, Kortick was looking forward to the ice cream sandwich experience. She planned to snag one for the first time this year.
“I put that on my list, but I didn’t see it,” she said.
Kortick wasn’t going to let that setback ruin her Masters experience. The short wait and efficiency at the concession stand was enough to brighten her mood.
“It’s streamlined, it’s easy, there’s quick access,” she said.
“The people are amazingly friendly and it’s just an amazing place and amazing experience. I’ve never been to a sporting event like it.”
