Females now welcome
SAINT ANDREWS, SCOTLAND- Women are now permitted as members for the first time at The Royal & Ancient Golf Club at St. Andrews.
The club was founded 260 years ago and was exclusively for men but voted overwhelmingly to admit female members on Thursday.
The club has a worldwide membership of 2,500 and says 85 percent voted in favor of admitting female members.
A club spokesman says "the membership has also acted to fast-track a significant initial number of women to become members in the coming months."
