Oldest Golf Club Votes to Admit Women as Members
Muirfield golf club, which is also the oldest golf club in the world, has finally changed its policy and allowed women to be a part of the club.
It has been reported that a similar attempt was made in 2016, but that time the club failed to raise enough votes to change the policy but this time, with 80.2 percent votes, the policy of “only men” has come to an end.
R&A chief executive Martin Slumbers said in a talk that the club would soon update its policy and allow women to get the membership.
He added, “it is extremely important that women become part of this great game”.
