On the Royal Norfolk Golf Club

So my dad is seriously into golf, and plays all the time. He’s been into golf for years. I used to try and play a bit, but I was completely bloody useless at it, so I don’t do that any more. Anyway – my mother is a ‘lady member’ of the golf club – or at least used to be. I think she got bored of it. Anyway – the ‘lady members’ are very much there on sufferance. They don’t get to go into most of the bars, they don’t get to play on Saturdays and they are generally ridiculed by most of the proper members. But not any more! It now turns out that the golf club won’t get a drinks license unless they let women in as full members – and that means with full voting rights. It’s only a few decades late, but it’s still a step in the right direction…
