You are allowed in. Who do you think cleans the mens room and makes the food?

golf sucks. why would anyone actually want to be there?

No, you suck.

IDk how I feel about it... I certainly have no problem with women playing golf, or playing golf with women (especially if they're hot and wear those little golf skirts... (but I digress)

I do feel that it's a private club and they have the right to admit whoever they want...

So...those of you who oppose....would love to know why.

Because women do it to from local book clubs & red hat societies right on up to the elite clubs

And guess what, 99.99999999% of us guys don't care one bit about all your stuff. In fact most of us are glad that you get to do some things for yourselves where you can girl it up without any Y chromosomes messing up your get togethers.

Let us guys have our peace also. Seems like there are fewer and fewer of them to choose from these days. And the guys poker night once a week at a friends house doesn't really count.

I do not agree with or support any groups which are exclusive of people due to gender, race, national origin, religion. etc.

So what is your "peace?" Please explain how women playing at Augusta national threaten peace?

The subject of membership at Augusta and the supposed issue of women in Augusta may be one of the most over-blown, uninformed non-stories ever. I belong to a private country club and my wife has been a COO/General Manager of several private clubs for over 20 years now.

Private clubs do not generally make their membership criteria public, and Augusta is no different. However, unlike other private clubs, at Augusta one does not apply to join the club. Augusta invites prospective members to join their club, and this is generally done with the full intention of that person knowing they will be invited and that they will accept the invite. They will also be expected to write a pretty hefty check- rumor has it that it would exceed $200k.

In most other clubs, a prospective member applies and has the sponsorship of a couple other members. That membership application is reviewed by the Board of Directors and either accepted or rejected, for whatever reason they want. As many country clubs as I've been a part of, I have never seen a club not allow women as members (I have seen them not allow women to play golf except certain days of the week- Biltmore Estate).

People pay for the right of exclusivity and privacy in these clubs, Augusta is no different. Their membership list is private and, except for a few supposed internet leaks of lists that are many years old, there are but a select few who know all of the members of Augusta. So, while the politicians and activists continue to rant and try to make this an issue, no one knows- there may already be a women member or two...or ten at Augusta.

And you know what? As long as it's a private club, they get to make their own rules- just like every other private club in this country. There are approximately 4400 private country clubs in this country (this does not include private city clubs, athletic clubs, social clubs) and there seems to be this uproar about Augusta. Every time I hear people start complaining, I simply laugh-

By the way, the CEO of IBM, Verginia Rometty, did attend the Masters tournament this weekend.
