First Women to Join Augusta National Golf Club

The home of the Masters tournament invited Condoleezza Rice and a South Carolina businesswoman to be their first female members


For the first time in its 80-year history, Augusta National Golf Club has women as members.

The home of the Masters, under increasing criticism the past decade because of its all-male membership, invited former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and South Carolina financier Darla Moore to become the first women in green jackets when the club opens for a new season in October.
