Getting an Augusta National membership is not easy, and for women, it was impossible a few years ago.

Augusta National Golf Club (ANGC) has never revealed its membership list to the public, as it likes to keep most of the information to itself. One cannot become a member by applying, as membership is provided only via invitations. Females didn't have this privilege until 2012, when the club was exclusive to males.

However, it marked an important milestone in ANGC's history when the club invited former US Secretary Condoleezza Rice and financier Darla Moore to become the first-ever female members of the club.

Over the years, the club has added a few more female personalities as members. IBM's first female CEO, Virginia 'Ginni' Rometty, was invited in 2014. Former USGA President Diana Murphy received an invitation from the club in 2018. Ana Botin, executive chairman of Banco Santander, is also one of the members of the iconic club.

Heidi Ueberroth, who joined in 2019, was the sixth female member of the club. Last year, it was reported that LPGA Tour veteran Annika Sorenstam was also invited to join the club.
