The prank was organised by the bookmaker after the HCEG yesterday announced the club will hold its second vote to admit female members in the space of a year.
“While Muirfield members bury their heads in the sand this time round, we thought we’d prod the beast with our Jurassic sign,” a Paddy Power statement read.
“To be honest we were a bit scared when one of the dinosaurs stormed out to take our sign down but overall it was a roaring success.”
Last year’s vote fell 14 short of what was required to change its male-only policy and resulted in Muirfield losing its place on the Open rota.
The bookmaker is also running a special market on the vote, with the outcome expected in the middle of next month. Currently, ‘No’ is the favourite at 1/2.
