MSP welcomes Royal Aberdeen decision
Commenting on the announcement that Royal Aberdeen Golf Club has finally voted to allow women members, North East Labour MSP Lewis Macdonald said today:
“This a welcome decision by the members of Royal Aberdeen Golf Club.
A hundred years on from the first women winning the right to vote, women in Aberdeen have finally won the right to play a round of golf on the same basis as the men.
“Nevertheless, the fact that 97% of the membership voted to change the rules is reassuring, and I’m sure many female golfers from across the North East will be looking forward to playing their first round at Royal Aberdeen.”
