Sex-rule clubs not par for the course

With The Open golf championship finishing at Muirfield yesterday and with the news going round the world that this is a club that bars women from membership, I have to wonder why golf is now to be included in the Olympic Games.

I believe several countries were threatened with expulsion from the Games by the IOC if they did not send any women to the Games.

However, surely the rules should also apply to any sports that have 'men-only' or 'women-only' clubs?
