Augusta, home of the Masters, admits first women members
(Reuters) – The Augusta National Golf Club, home of The Masters golf tournament, on Monday said it has admitted two women as members for the first time: former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and financier Darla Moore.
“This is a joyous occasion as we enthusiastically welcome Secretary Condoleezza Rice and Darla Moore as members of Augusta National Golf Club,” club President Billy Payne said in a statement.
The Georgia club’s previous status as male-only has created controversy in the past.
