Video: Golf - Muirfield votes to remain a men-only club


Muirfield is being urged to look again at its membership rules after voting against allowing women to join the club, losing the right to host golf's Open Championship in the process.

The East Lothian club held a ballot at the end of a two-year consultation on membership but failed to get the two-thirds majority of its 648 eligible voters required to change policy.

Of the 616 members who voted, 397, or 64%, voted in favour of admitting women, while 219, or 36%, voted against.
