Caitlyn Jenner’s golf club gives her female locker

Caitlyn Jenner is thrilled the heads of her golf club have accepted her new identity by giving her a female locker.
The former Olympic athlete and regular golfer has been a member of the Sherwood Country Club in Thousands Oaks, California for more than 15 years, and still continued to apply for membership as Bruce even after she went public with her new identity Caitlyn in June (15).
Now it seems she has been officially welcomed as Caitlyn at the exclusive country club, complete with a female locker bearing her new name.
She shared the happy news on Instagram.com on Wednesday (02Mar16) posting a photo of a golf visor hanging off the wooden locker door. In the caption accompanying the snap, she wrote, “Grateful for my new locker at Sherwood. #welcome #acceptance.”
During an episode of her reality TV show I Am Cait, which aired in September (15), Caitlyn filled out a course application form as Bruce because she did not want to deal with the bother of changing her identity, including a locker room switch.
She explained to her friend, “My membership is under Bruce… (applying as Caitlyn) is just not going to work… not right now, I just want to get in and do the thing. So let’s just put Bruce down, it’s fine.
“I don’t have to worry about locker rooms and all that c**p right now which I don’t want to worry about. I’ll worry about the locker rooms later on down the line…”. Executives of the country club then issued a statement saying, “Bruce Jenner has and continues to be a valued and long term member at the Club” after reports emerged suggested Caitlyn would not receive the same privileges as Bruce had.
They added, “Sherwood Country Club cherishes its members, and their privacy… Sherwood is very proud of the wonderful facilities it offers both its male and female members and their guests.” The country club has stayed true to its word, granting Caitlyn her own space in the female locker room.
Caitlyn will soon be seen in the second season of reality show I Am Cait. In a new promotional teaser, the 66-year-old confessed she is “open” to a relationship with “a very special guy”.
Discussing the revelation in an interview with U.S. breakfast show Today, Caitlyn admits settling down with a man is always a possibility, although she has little time to explore her options just now.
“I know people are always interested in that,” Caitlyn mused. “Right now, I am just so busy kind of doing what I’m doing. But it would be nice to kind of share your life with somebody. But hey, I’m open.” Former wife Kris Jenner called the news of Caitlyn’s romantic plans ‘confusing’.
