For the first time EVER, the Augusta National Golf Club -- home of The Masters -- has admitted a woman as a member ... and the honor went to Condoleezza Rice!!
Augusta -- located in Georgia -- had been a woman-free zone since it opened for business in 1933 ... and only started allowing black men into the club in 1990. Seriously, 1990.
But this morning Augusta announced it had invited the former Secretary of State, along with South Carolina businesswoman Darla Moore, to join the club.
Rice is an avid golfer.
Guess they'll have to build a new locker room.

They admitted two women. Was the other one her girlfriend?
LMAO. I suppose she can come as Condaleeza’s guest.
We all knew sooner or late the liberals would win.
Why fight it. White men just need to throw up their hands and give up.
We don’t amount to a pile of dung in the politically correct world we live in today. Unless we are homosexual.
Excellent! Good for Condi!
done specifically to drive Limbaugh nuts
Q: What do you call a club that only admits men?
A: A gay bar.
“Excellent! Good for Condi!”
My thoughts exactly.
Condoleezza Rice, Colleen Curran and Condi's now famous golf ball.
On the 14th hole of the round at Warren Golf Course, Colleen was standing just off the tee of the par-three, 149-yard hole when one of the others in the threesome got off a nice shot that glided down the fairway, hit turf, bounced a few times, rolled a little more ... and went straight into the cup, for a hole-in-one - an oc-currence most golfers never see in a lifetime.
They jumped up and down. They hugged. OK, now you've got one tremendously fun day, don't you? Hang on - we haven't even gotten to the punch line yet. Colleen's golfing partner who hit the ace, the very first one of her life, was ... Condoleezza Rice, perhaps best known to the world (OK, at least before this) as United States Secretary of State in the George W. Bush White House. "It was all just unbelievable!" says Colleen.
Yes, scratch "just a good day."
Colleen Curran had a day of her life ... and she hadn't even gotten to the darned football game yet.
Rice - or "Dr. Rice," as she is known in education circles - has her master's degree from Notre Dame, and was on campus for a speaking engagement. She is such a voracious weekend golfer ("She has a passion for athletics, some-thing I hadn't known," says Colleen, "It's from her dad."); Rice asked if she could squeeze in a quick round while there. That's how Colleen got in-volved.
Sept of 2011 - hole in one for Condi.
No Red Tees.
Who is Colleen Curran?
Nicklaus used to use that when he was younger.
Here’s the whole article from Sept of 2011.
Yip, yip, yippee, yahoo. Whoop-de-friggin-doo.
On a related note, the good news is she’s STILL not Willard’s running mate.
I only hope that Condi made the cup on her talent, not as a “diversity” two-fer!
They can afford to build a new locker room. But there may be unspoken objections, to be exposed by the impossibility of obtaining the permits necessary to start the work!
Political differences aside, I find her to be a likeable lady, who’d be welcome on my golf course any time.
