Augusta National Golf Club has admitted female members for the first time, granting entry to former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and South Carolina financier Darla Moore.

Augusta, the site of the prestigious Masters golf tournament, has never before admitted women in the club’s 80-year history. Chairman Billy Payne called the change in policy a  “joyous occasion.”

“These accomplished women share our passion for the game of golf and both are well known and respected by our membership,” Payne said, according to The Associated Press. “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.”
