If you missed the news from Scotland this morning, Muirfield (the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers) have voted to not let women join their club. In turn, the R&A have announced that clubs without female members will not host Open Championships going forward.
The members of Muirfield needed a two-thirds majority to pass the vote for female membership and at the end of postal ballot voting last night, that majority was not met. What do you think this means for Muirfield? Will the private club suffer at all from the decision? The economic benefits of the Open Championship in East Lothian will be lost, which is one distressing aspect that hasn’t been widely mention.
