The Royal and Ancient Golf Club announced Tuesday that seven women have accepted invitations to become honorary club members, including Swedish great Annika Sorenstam and Britain’s Princess Anne.

The private club, which has a membership of 2,400, voted in September to end 260 years of male-only exclusivity by voting in favor of inviting women to join. On Tuesday, it said that in addition to the honorary members, “a number of women have been admitted as members of the Club with more set to follow in the coming months.”
