Kate Upton felt "insulted" about a Los Angeles Country Club policy in which females aren't allowed to play golf until noon.

The Los Angeles Country Club (LACC) is considered as one of the best golf courses in Los Angeles. Several reports say that the club maintains an "exclusive status" as it has not allowed a professional golf tournament held there.

Even celebrities aren't really granted membership easily, Fathomaway.com reported. "LACC is serious about who it opens its doors to and has been known to shun Hollywood types," wrote the Web site. Randolph Scott, a prominent leading man in the 1940's, had to give up his acting career in exchange of a membership with the golf club.

LACC also implements strict guidelines for those individuals who wish to play some golf such as cellphones and other media devices aren't allowed to be used inside the property, men aren't permitted to wear caps or hats inside the club house at all times, sport coat and suit with shirt and tie are to be worn inside private function rooms, and women aren't allowed to wear revealing outfits such as midriff or short skirts, among many others. The same rules apply to children.

Upton took her frustration about the alleged policy, which dictates certain times when women can play, on Twitter. "I just heard that Los Angeles Country Club doesn't allow women to golf until noon, that is the most insulting news I've heard, it's 2014," Kate wrote on Twitter.

Unsurprisingly, Upton's social media rant instantly attracted attention and has reached the club's general manager.

According to Golfchannel.com, there is no need for Kate to get ballistic because she has been "misinformed." General manager Kirk Reese said that the country club has had female members since 1898 and that women can certainly tee off any time of the day.
