The fourth oldest golf club in the world - Bruntsfield Links Golfing Society - has become the latest to permit women members after a vote.
Bruntsford Links Golfing Society, based in Edinburgh and founded in 1761, saw a vote of 83.7% members cast in favour of the change today.
"This is an historic occasion for the society," said Bruntsford Links Golfing Society captain Mike Smith.
"This change, together with a £1.2m investment in our course, will ensure we are well positioned for the future."
Bruntsfield follows in the footsteps of the R&A and others, including The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, Royal Troon, Royal Aberdeen and Panmure, in deciding to break with tradition and admit female members.
The club revealed that 67% of all members eligible to vote participated.
