Newsclip®: [Sports] Muirfield Golf Course will no longer host The Open after voting against female members, confirms the R&A | Golf | Sport | The Independent

"Muirfield Golf Club has been dropped from The Open Championship roster after members failed to reach a two-thirds majority vote to allow women to join, risking a public backlash in the process. The vote went against allowing female members to join the prestigious Scottish golf club which is controlled by the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, and it comes less than two years after the R&A voted in favour of allowing female members to play at St Andrews.",
