The British Golf Industry Association welcome Muirfield Golf Club’s ruling that it will admit female members. 

BGIA Chairman Philip Morley said "The Muirfield decision highlights the fact that the game is growing and becoming more open. The BGIA has championed getting more females involved in our game for a significant amount of years – our ongoing support of National Golf Month whose 2017 focus is to get women and girls to try the sport reiterates this. We’re delighted, but not surprised by today’s outcome.”
