Pine Valley, home to the world's top-ranked golf course, has voted to allow women members and remove all gender-specific language from its bylaws.
Quote

On Friday evening, at an annual meeting of Pine Valley trustees and members, the club voted to remove all gender-specific language from its bylaws.

As part of the decision, women, who were also previously limited to playing the course on Sunday afternoons, will now be able to use the club without restrictions.

I think they're maybe a bit late to be using the phrase "right side of history" though.

I think as long as it’s not never, they made the move to the right side of history.

I don't care much — it's not my club, and I generally support a club's right to do as they please^ — but I'm glad they went this route.

^ This is borderline, too, because I don't think you should be able to do anything you want to discriminate. But there are "Curves" and the NAACP. There are clubs for only Jewish people, etc. But I also don't really know much about this stuff, and try to default to "allow others."

I’m with you, I could care less, not my club, never will be my club,  never could afford it, pretty sure I will never play here.

I voted Better Late Than Never, but I really don’t care what they do. It’s not my club and if they required ever member to wear clown shoes and paint there face blue, it’s their prerogative. Their image of their club is on them. I’ll never get to play there I don’t think.

Meh (I changed my vote). I am sure a great many folks think this is eradication of sexism. It could be, but not sure that is necessarily correct reflection of the change. 

IMHO a good thing in general but I am certainly curious as to what prompted the change.

    • This is a pet peeve of mine too. I love par 5s where driving is made dangerous like you said. Especially combined with green complexes that make running it up with a wood dangerous but are relatively receptive to a hybrid or long iron approach. Fully eliminating the driver landing area and forcing every single player to play the hole the same way is just lazy design and makes for boring holes.  
    • Day 34 (5/6/21) - Hit a small bucket at the range today, about 1/3 each wedges (full swing motion), hybrids and Driver. After striking the  first couple of wedges really near the hosel, I placed my Driver headcover about 2" outside the target line, which definitely helped me to move the strike closer to the center of the face. Low point control was generally good, as were distance and direction. Drivers were pretty solid, with better trajectory than I have been hitting and mostly with a gentle draw. The only exception was a fade which would have worked OK. Hybrids were a problem as I had poor low point control and either hit fat or thin, resulting in poor distance and trajectory. Low point control with my hybrids will be a priority. 
    • I really can't think of disliking courses to a point of calling them the worst I have played from a design POV. Like few other post's above it is conditioning that can make me to not ever want to come back.   I've played a course where the 'greens' are simply tighter cut grass here locally (not sure worth mentioning the name. They weren't pretending to be anything better - $9 for the round). But of course, it was clear after the first hole that I had overpayed.. lol.  Although @mattm16, I would feel like an absolutely spoilt brat complaining about anything I've ever played looking at your 'course' pics. hah  
    • I'm not a fan of Pete Dye courses either, but Mike Strantz is the one I like the least, from a design perspective. 
    • I don't like courses that have a creek or hazard that spans like 250-280 off the tee, especially when its on a par 5.  My preference is to at least have the option to hit driver, totally fine if the landing area at 270 or whatever narrows or is tree lined or bunkers or something, but at least let it be an option, don't force me to lay up to 240 off the tee on a 525-550 yd par 5. There are at least 2 courses around me that have multiple of those holes and I steer away from those courses when possible. There is a 3rd course that has 2 holes like that too but those par 5s are shorter, more around the 500 yd mark, maybe even high 400s depending on where the tees are located so they're still reachable with 2 really good shots.
