Female membership decision postponed at Tokyo 2020 golf venue stat : insidethegames

referring to In 2012, Augusta National Golf Club, the venue for the Masters, welcomed their first female members 79 years after opening.
A decision on female membership rules at the golf course due to host competition at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games has still not been made.
A unanimous vote of the 15 Board members is required for changes to be made.
However, Japanese national broadcaster NHK reported that following a Board meeting, a decision was not reached and the vote has been postponed.
Golf was included as part of the Olympic programme at the Rio 2016 Games for the first time in 112 years.

as mentioned in Board chairman Kiichi Kimura later told reporters that the club was basically in the position of loaning out the venue for the Olympics.
In 2014, the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews decided to allow women to join after 260 years of exclusion, and Augusta National, home of the U.S. Masters, ended its men-only membership in 2012.
Two of the most famous golf clubs in the world have changed their policies to allow female members in recent years.
The Tokyo Olympic organising committee sent a letter to the club last week appealing for it to reconsider the policy.
Japanese media has said a unanimous vote of the 15-member board is required to change the rule.
