Wow! For the first time in its 80-year history, Augusta National Golf Club has female members.
No matter how you feel about former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and South Carolina financier Darla Moore becoming the first women in to make a fashion statement in Augusta National green jackets, it’s truly an historic moment for women, and for the game of golf.
“These accomplished women share our passion for the game of golf and both are well known and respected by our membership,” Augusta National Chairman Billy Payne said in a statement. “It will be a proud moment when we present Condoleezza and Darla their green jackets when the club opens this fall. This is a significant and positive time in our club’s history and, on behalf of our membership, I wanted to take this opportunity to welcome them and all of our new members into the Augusta National family.”
Here at DeBordieu, the ocean front, private golf community just north of Charleston, SC, we’re no stranger to women on the golf course. In fact, the current President of DeBordieu Club is Mrs. Marty Moore Wickam, who, by the way, is doing an awesome job!
