A list of the remaining all-male golf clubs
By mustang6560 on 8/21/12
Following the announcement yesterday that Augusta National ended its 80 year all-male membership policy by inviting two female members — former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and South Carolina financier Darla Moore — I've read numerous articles about what Augusta National's move means for golf, and more importantly, for the future of other all-male clubs.

I've tried to compile a list of the remaining all-male golf clubs that I've either read about or known about. If you know of an all-male golf club missing on my list, please let me know in the comments section below and I'll add it.

I played Troon last year and though I was concentrating more on keeping my ball out of the wind, gorse, and bunkers with names, I vaguely recall that they have a ladies league and either the member's clubhouse was recently co-edified or they have a women's clubhouse??

I just don't see the issue with a private club admitting who they want.....

I agree with guzzlin' that a strictly private club should generally be able to decide who they want as members. Personally, I wouldn't want to be a member of a club that was so rigid as to exclude large segments of society based on gender, race, age, etc ... There are clubs like that and they most likely don't want me as a member. That os okay with me. I am an avid golfer. If you are an avid golfer, not too obnoxious and are willing to pay your share of the expenses, you can join my club.

Groucho Marx made a comment about Lakeside CC in Los Angels. He said he wouldn't want to join any club that allowed him to join.

I agree with guzzlingil and bkuehn. A private club should be able to admit who they'd like, and as an individual if you have the means and connections, you can choose to join a club with similar thoughts.

Personally, I would not choose to join a club that discriminates based on race, age, creed, etc. However, I would join a male only club. I feel that men and women are inherently different and like the idea of a place where you can truly get away for bit.

I found Oob's blurb about Burning Tree (outside of D.C.) to be a bit misogynistic, but humorous nonetheless:

"This *is* a men-only club; women are allowed only for four hours on a single Saturday before Christmas to shop for their husbands in the pro shop. Otherwise, women are not welcome on the course or in the clubhouse and are typically escorted off the property."

Lochinvar in Houston is still male only. A friend of mine works for an industrial washer/dryer repair company, and Lochinvar called his company a couple of years ago to come service their equipment. They asked specifically for a male technician.

I read that Cypress Point does not even allow women on the property.

FYI, Ladies Golf Club of Toronto *does* welcome men as guests of members, or as "guest card-holders." However, nearby National GC of Canada does not permit women under any circumstances.
