Bookmaker Paddy Power has spoken out about a prank it pulled on the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers (HCEG) at Muirfield.
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
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.
