Muirfield

(Files) In this file picture taken on July 18, 2013, US golfer Mark O’Meara prepares to tee off on the 18th during the first round of the 2013 British Open Golf Championship at Muirfield golf course at Gullane in Scotland.
Historic Scottish golf course Muirfield lost its status as a British Open venue and provoked a storm of criticism after voting not to admit female members on Thursday. A proposal to allow female members did not receive the required two-thirds majority needed, with 387 members — or 64 percent — voting in favour and 219 members — or 36 percent — voting against.
