Opinions/thoughts on Lexington Country Club and or Idle Hour Country Club.

How does the membership between the two compare? It's my understanding that LCC is more of an "old money" club for equestrian people? Idle Hour is a much newer club founded in the '50s? Thoughts?

I don't think of either club as being "old/new money" - but if I did, probably the exclusive, expensive Idle Hour Country Club would take the "old money" prize. The nearby Idle Hour subdivision was constructed in the early 1950s, but the Idle Hour Country Club was created considerably before then, in the 1920s. The Lexington Country Club has also been around for a very long time.

The Idle Hour subdivision is middle-class to blue collar, with one street containing much nicer homes than the rest. The Fairway neighborhood on the other side of Idle Hour Country Club is much more pricey and contains well-maintained larger, older homes.

I do not belong to either club, but have attended a variety of events at the Lexington Country Club over the years - however, I've never set foot in the Idle Hour Country Club.

Don't forget Spindletop, for UK alums. No golf, but swimming, tennis, etc., plus a spectacular mansion built by Texan nouveau-riche (oil) Pansy Yount, who sorely wanted to be a Lexington grande dame, but who was never accepted, alas.
