Wow, it only took 80 years for the Augusta National Golf Club to admit its first two female members, and the lucky women are none other than former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and South Carolina financier Darla Moore.
Augusta, home of the Masters, has always been criticized for their stance on not allowing women to join their club.
According to the Associated Press:
Augusta invited former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and South Carolina financier Darla Moore to become the first women in green jackets when the club opens for a new season in October.
Both women accepted.
"This is a joyous occasion," Augusta National chairman Billy Payne said Monday.
This is a good look for Augusta, even though it’s coming 80 years too late. Hopefully they can hold the LPGA tournaments there now!
