Belle Meade Country Club does not discriminate admission to its facilities if you are an invited guest of a member, or attending a public/private function held there.   To state that one is not is not allowed to enter due to ethnicity is totally wrong. 

They wouldn’t let me or my family in because we are Hispanic and this was circa 2006.

To my memory, Belle Meade CC's first non-white member was likely 30 years ago, but I remember later news stories that it was only one, for a long while, and they actually lived in Atlanta, so didn't visit often. It's also true that it was a WASP membership with Woodmont Country Club being the city's predominately Jewish country club. In my youth it was on Woodmont Blvd. where Sugartree now sits. It moved in the early 70's to Sneed Road in Williamson County. By that point, it had become pretty open to anyone due to membership drops.

I also expect an admonition to take this conversation to the Coffee House.

Hobnobish Country Clubs are a waste of money. Even if I had the money I am the type of person that would be more anti social and tell the hob nobbers to stick it. 

I would not be the one that would drive a luxury car either. Its just not who I am. To throw the racial, religious, social, & genetic pedigree superiority into the mix is something I would not want to have anything to do with. Besides I hate the game of golf and as some of you know me I say the two biggest wastes of land IMO are golf courses and grave yards. The game of golf is a waste of land and water resources.

Besides when doing ones family tree, there are always surprises for those WASP when they find Jewish, non white, horse thieving, murdering ancestors in the family tree. That is the first thing they try to cover up. There are always a few nuts in the tree as well.

I am sure there are some people that think they are truly good people but are so misinformed about their worldly views you would never convince them they are wrong.

The state is selling (by sealed bid) a 6 acre site with 12 buildings at 3411 Belmont Blvd, near the NW corner of the intersection of Belmont Blvd. and Woodmont Blvd.  The oldest structure on the lot is The Yellow House, which was erected in 1920. Most of the buildings (some built as late as 1977) are in disrepair. An offering memo states, “The buildings are set up for institutional use [and] consist of administrative buildings, residences (both dorms and duplexes), classrooms, a gymnasium and storage buildings."

It would seem that a developer would raze the structures and build a residential project.  Hopefully there would be a way to at least incorporate TheYellow House.
