Augusta battle goes Trans-Atlantic – women continue to be banned from Portmarnock

Augusta battle goes Trans-Atlantic – women continue to be banned from Portmarnock – Brief Article

The National Women’s Council of Ireland is calling for a boycott of the Irish Open, which will be played July 24-27 at the male-only Portmarnock Golf Club. “It is an insult and an outrage that women continue to be banned from Portmarnock,” says council director Joanna McMinn. Sound familiar? That tournament, incidentally, comes one week after the British Open, which is being held at the all-male Royal St. George’s Golf Club in England. At St. George’s, there used to hang a sign that read “No Dogs, No Women.”
