Bluegrass Yacht and Country Club is more than a place to golf, play tennis, swim, or have a really nice meal. It is home away from home. I looked at other clubs before deciding on Bluegrass and the deciding factor was not the challenging nature of the golf course, which will make anyone a better golfer, but it was the members. The members I met when I join opened not only their tee times to me they encouraged me to become part of the Bluegrass family. You can always stop by the club and find someone to play golf with or just watch the game in the men’s lounge. If you want the fellowship and full club experience that can be gained by becoming a member of an exclusive private club in Sumner County, Bluegrass is the only choice.
