Alison Johnstone MSP, Sport spokesperson for the Scottish Greens, today (14 March) welcomed the result of a vote at Muirfield golf club in East Lothian to admit women members for the first time.
Last year, golf's ruling body, the R&A, removed Muirfield from the Open Championship roster after it failed to admit women members.
Alison Johnstone, MSP for Lothian and co-founder of the Women 50:50 campaign group, said:
“The resounding support for women’s membership is welcome. Well done to those members who pushed hard to get this shift in views and policy.
