Royal Troon Golf Club is consulting members over whether to end its men-only membership policy.

The Ayrshire club, which is hosting this year's Open, shares its facilities with Ladies' Golf Club Troon but both have separate clubhouses.

Troon captain Martin Cheyne said the club had written to its 800 members to "understand their views and feelings on the issue".

Royal Troon and Muirfield are the only two Open hosts to still exclude women.
