Country Club in a Legal Battle
Not available online
TitleCountry Club in a Legal Battle
Extended TitleHillcrest boasts of a lively past, but its future may depend on a bitter feud in the present.
AbstractHillcrest Country Club, founded in 1916, has been "for nearly a century the home for Kansas Citians who felt out of place at the ritzier country clubs." Currently, "the old Hillcrest is dead, done in by hard times, hurt feelings, a bitter feud and a bag-full of lawsuits." David Francis, from a prominent Kansas City family, and Terry Clark, "a golf guy," became partners in 2006 to help the struggling country club. In fact, many members left, and now the partners are suing each other.
