Found this Sept. 22 story in the Augusta Chronicle: Area women respect all-male golf clubs:

Martha Burk doesn't have many allies among the area's female golfers.

An informal survey at last week's CSRA Women's Golf Association 54-hole Championship found few players on the side of Burk, who is pressuring the all-male Augusta National Golf Club to admit a woman as a member.

Cathy McKie, a three-time winner of the CSRA Women's Golf Association event, opposes Burk and said that was the consensus among women she's talked to about the issue....

"I don't see any problem with it," McKie said. "If someone wanted to invite me as a woman to play as a guest there and they said, 'No, you can't play because you're a woman,' now that would bother me. The way it is now, that's their business."

Women are allowed to play Augusta National as guests of members.

"I've played it three or four times," said Irene DeBarge, of Augusta. "I don't think women have any right to be over there. Let them (Augusta National members) have their course. I think Martha Burk should go to some other matter that is more important."...
