"We read the announcement from Augusta National with great interest and we congratulate Condoleezza Rice and Darla Moore on their membership," said a spokesman for The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews in an email on Monday night.

The R&A does not have female members. That policy, however, will not change because of Augusta National's decision.

"The rules of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews specify a male membership," the spokesman added, "and this policy remains a matter for our members to determine."
