In the March 31 View story, Jack Hawn's "The Golfing Life" quoted Dinah Shore as knowing of no other private golf club than Hillcrest County Club, to which she belongs, that grants membership to single women.
Miss Shore will be heartened to learn that the Woodland Hills Country Club has had an open policy since at least 1975 with no quotas--and no rejection of such applicants. We now have 10 such ladies with golfing memberships, seven of whom own equity in the club with voting rights. Although we have a number of eligible bachelors that might not concur, we agree with Miss Shore that "the idea of marrying someone to get a membership seems above and beyond." We require no such drastic measures.
