Being welcomed by almost everyone, including Scotland's First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, the move is a long overdue step towards eradicating the skewed ideas that do not allow women to be members of world's most coveted golf clubs, The Guardian reports.
"So, anyway, we'll go back there for the Open Championship at some point and I won't be having many cups of tea with the members afterwards".

"Obviously, I was outspoken about this before whenever the vote went the first time around". Muirfield golf club members have voted to admit women members after the privately owned club voted eighty percent in favour in updating the membership policy.

"The current waiting list for membership at Muirfield suggests that new candidates for membership, women and men, can expect to wait two to three years, or longer, to become a member of the club", the HGEC said in a statement.
Thomas Bjorn was one of the first to welcome Muirfield to the 21st century on twitter, while Gary Player said the vote was crucial to the future of golf.
