Latest Peter Alliss Nonsense
This annoys me in so many ways! Of course the wives of Muirfield members can play whenever they want to play, that's because they are wives of members and I bet most do not work.
I think Peter needs to open his eyes to the present day situation and realise that many women golfers do actually work and cannot play when they want to play. They have to play at the weekend as they work the rest of the time. So that means they need to play on a Saturday. How many clubs allowed that before equality.
Yes many clubs (including mine) lost women members because of the extra cost straight after equality but right now we are seeing a surge in new younger women members because we are no longer second class citizens at the club. This is resulting in a lower age average as well as boosting the membership.
I'm sure Peter Alliss still sees women as non working and spend all their days shopping and baking and then making their husbands tea.
Still quite like his commentary though - at least it is better than Monty!

Yes you are right - it's a much bigger conversation than just this article focused on his thoughts!
