ONE of the poshest golf courses in the country is considering lifting its ban on women members.
Pollok Golf Club, on the outskirts of Glasgow, is the latest in a long line of courses which may reverse their “men only” policy, that has lasted for nearly 125 years.
The club which counts former Celtic director and Glasgow provost Michael Kelly as a member has said they are to poll their members later in the month with a meeting scheduled to discuss the revolution.
The course’s managing secretary Donald McKellar said: “Pollok Golf Club can confirm its members are considering proposals to change its membership policy.
“A recent members’ survey on extending membership to ladies revealed 85% in favour of giving the matter consideration, and a motion to amend the constitution to admit ladies, and girls up to 18, will now be voted on September 24.”
Women can already play a round of golf at the exclusive parkland course for £65.
But they can’t join the prestigious club, where membership costs around £1,000 a year plus a £1,350 joining fee.
Mr McKellar added: “Socially, we live in a fast changing society and more inclusive approaches are required.”
