Tokyo 2020 Golf Course to Allow Female Membership

  • As per reports, women will be admitted as full members in the golf venue for Tokyo 2020. Earlier this month, the International Olympic Committee warned the Kasumigaseki Country Club of stripping of the Olympic golf event if its membership policy was not changed.

    The Tokyo 2020 organising committee reportedly mentioned that because of a unanimous decision by the executive board, the regulations of the club were changed.

    Women were previously not taken as full members and not allowed to play on Sundays.

    Golf event was included in the Olympic for the first time in Rio, 2016 since 1904.
