(AP) -- One of the three clubs used for the British Open with a male-only membership policy has voted to allow female members for the first time.

Royal St. George's, which last hosted golf's oldest major in 2011, said on Wednesday more than 81 percent of the club's full members took part in a ballot, and 90 percent voted in favor of women being eligible for membership.

"It is extremely good news going forward," Tim Checketts, club secretary of Royal St. George's, told The Associated Press.
