Golf must change ancient stance on women

Simon Barnes, writing in The Times on Monday, 12 November, is right when he says that “golf must change (its) ancient stance on women”.

A number of my recent blogs have been about the amazing achievements of women in the London Olympics and Paralympics. With golf having achieved Olympic status it is no longer acceptable that clubs which host the Open major championship (Royal & Ancient at St Andrews, Royal St George’s, Royal Troon and Muirfield) have only men as members.

As he states, “the point of the Olympic games is inclusivity”.  “If crusty old misogynistic clubs will not admit women, the sport must take a stance. The major tournaments must be held somewhere else, at a club with female members. A public event is a public statement. No sport should be seen to be standing up for unfair treatment of women, or anyone else.”

  1. Another kind of bonus could be the variable bonus, this implies you gat a particular percent of the sum a person deposit. The percentage is unique for each site – it can be 20% or even 50%. Some casinos even give you a 100% casino bonus. This can be a way for getting people back the digital game bedrooms, but an online casino bonus means that you have to play by some regulations especially if you want to redraw your dollars. This is difficult because whenever you get an online casino bonus you should meet several conditions which are not very easily accomplished. Nevertheless, your efforts will be rewarded.
