275 years of male only privilege ended as Muirfield admits 12 women members

Two years after the decision to admit women members after a second ballot allowed a reversal of a ban, 12 women have been fast tracked into membership this July. The second ballot reached an 80% majority after the R&A removed the club from the rota of Open Championship venues.

It can sometimes take prospective members up to 12 years to be admitted.Two of the women are overseas members. Alistair Campbell, Captain of the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers said “This is a milestone in our 275 year history and we will be welcoming all new members to share in the values and traditions of the club we are excited for its future”.
