Golf takes a back seat to horseracing in Kentucky, as does most everything else, actually. But the two sports have certain commonalities: Both can break your heart. Both can be addictive. And both can be expensive, unless you know which horse to bet on or which course to play. And while Funny Cide may have been an unknown before this year's Kentucky Derby, golfers from the Great Lakes to the Deep South have discovered that the best bet for golf in the Louisville area is Quail Chase Golf Club. With its 27 championship holes, great service and unbeatable rates, Quail Chase guarantees a golfing tri-fecta.
