A rare chance to read the Sunday papers, the two Golf Clubs which are unfortunate enough to have me as a member are coming in for quite a lot of flak regarding their male only membership policy; this is only likely to intensify in the lead up to the 2013 Open at Muirfield, it's a very tricky issue and I don't envy those on the relevant committees. One hates seeing the Members being portrayed as a bunch of neolithic misogynists but they shouldn't be forced to have an any sex policy just because they happen to play golf, it would need to be applied across the board which would have implications for many other institutions. I wonder what would happen if an existing male member had a sex change operation, at what particular point would they no longer be admitted to the changing room? Must have a look at the Club Rules, not that I am planning anything of course! Personally, whilst I don't necessarily agree with it, change is inevitable at some stage and Clubs might be better to be proactive before they find themselves backed into a corner.
