    I agree,  time to take a look at that rule and make a change IMO

    I think it's a great idea. There's so many great women golfers, they should hold the woman's british open there.

    to quote Bob Dylan - "the times they are a changin"   Such changes are long overdue IMHO.  However lets see how the vote goes.  Was turned down last vote.  more clubs need to look at this type policy.

    Yeah, things really started to change in 1964 when I graduated HS and started college and Bob Dylan got a lot of peoples attention with his music...RZ was ahead of his time...it seems that the "old boy networks" of this world just refuse to catch up in the changes......bully for R&A and Augusta catching up with the rest of the world and shame of them for waiting so d**n long....

    I agree. It is long overdue. Wake up St. Andrews. Admitting women will only enhance the club experience

    I'm a traditionalist. I would not yield to political pressure. I doubt if the are hurting for membership, sponsorship, or anything else.

    I knew this had something to do with the Holley and Higley trip over there.  Lets hope they did not leave any vacation mistakes that will show up in a few years.

    Scotland Yard has cleared the area and all incriminating evidence has been wiped clean from the scene.....

    I'm glad this is happening.  It was definitely due

    And Muirfield looks to do the same. Were Holley and Higley there, too?
