Fresh off Muirfield voting to admit women as members for the first time in its history, the Tokyo 2020 Olympic golf venue has decided to follow suit by admitting women as full members.
The Kasumigaseki Country Club risked being stripped of the event if it did not change its membership policy, after being warned by the International Olympic Committee earlier this month.
Women at the golf club were previously not allowed to become full members or play on Sundays.

The Tokyo 2020 organising committee has said the club's regulations have been changed following a unanimous decision by the executive board.
"On behalf of the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee, I'd like to extend my gratitude to the members of the club for their understanding and cooperation," said committee president Yoshiro Mori.
"I also would like to express my admiration for the club's endeavour to come to an agreement in such a short period of time."
