History has been made the “Augusta National Golf Club” has admitted it’s first woman and that woman is former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Rice is the first woman and AFRICAN AMERICAN woman to be admitted. The club which was founded in 1934 started allowing African American men in 1990. ANGC chairman Billy Payne said in a press release:

“This is a joyous occasion as we enthusiastically welcome Secretary Condoleezza Rice and Darla Moore as members of Augusta National Golf Club. We are fortunate to consider many qualified candidates for membership at Augusta National. Consideration with regard to any candidate is deliberate, held in strict confidence and always takes place over an extended period of time. The process for Condoleezza and Darla was no different. These accomplished women share our passion for the game of golf and both are well known and respected by our membership. It will be a proud moment when we present Condoleezza and Darla their Green Jackets when the Club opens this fall. This is a significant and positive time in our Club’s history and, on behalf of our membership, I wanted to take this opportunity to welcome them and all of our new members into the Augusta National family.”
