The Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews urges its members to vote to abolish its men-only policy.

The Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews has urged its members to vote to abolish its men-only policy, 260 years after it was founded.

The club is "strongly in favour" of the rule change and is asking its 2,400 existing members to vote to allow women to join.

"Members of The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews, the founding club of The R&A, will vote on a motion to admit women as members," a spokesperson said today.

"The club's committees are strongly in favour of the rule change and are asking members to support it."

The vote will take place on September 18 and requires a two-thirds majority.
