It’s a bally disgrace. Muirfield is going to distribute ballots for members to vote on admitting women to the club for the first time ever.
I almost choked on my kedgeree. Whatever will they think of next? Stopping children cleaning chimneys? Allowing women the vote? Heaven forefend.
If that happens, the only male-only refuge I will have will be Troon, and they’re even thinking of jumping ship to let in the ladies, much of course, as we love them – but not in the golf course. Muirfield, a bunch of turncoats I say. Where on earth am I to go for a quiet pipe and a large gin and Dubonnet in peace?
I’d better summon my batman to get Peter Alliss on the blower. Much as I hate these new fangled gadgets, they do have a use, unlike ladies on a golf course. He’ll put a stop to all this modern tosh.
