Muirfield men-only and out of open

Muirfield Golf Club in Scotland loses right to host Open after failing to admit women members:

Muirfield Golf Club has been stripped of the right to hold the Open Championship after voting against allowing female members.
A ballot of the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, which runs Muirfield, fell 14 votes short of the two-thirds majority required for a rule change.
After the announcement of the vote, the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews, which runs the Open Championship and which opened its own membership to women in 2014, quickly said it would no longer stage golf’s oldest major competition at all-male clubs.
