In the nick of time….

July 5th, 2016

With The Open Championship just a few days away it’s good news that the members of Royal Troon Golf Club have voted to admit women members. The decision was made by an ‘overwhelming’ majority and welcomed ‘with delight’ by the Club Captain, Dr Martin Cheyne.

The R&A has been quick to confirm that we can now look forward to many more great Championships at Royal Troon for years to come. Very good news indeed.
