From real estate to charitable fundraising to the exclusive social and golfing clubs with one-page websites, the Hamptons requires a healthy bank balance to make it through the summer season. Who, where, and what the figures of finance are and can be found is the subject of this week’s IndyScene.

Notable members include Muffie Potter Aston and Anne Hearst. www.bathingcorp.comThe Amagansett Devon Yacht ClubFounded in 1908 and enjoying its 110th anniversary, the Devon Yacht Club is highly discreet, located at the end of Abrahams Landing Road on Gardiner’s Bay. With a beach club and marina, the club is known for its annual Fourth of July fireworks celebrations. www.devonyc.comThe Meadow ClubBehind its immaculate battlements comprised of hedgerows lie the tennis fields and social club founded in 1888. However, one of the nuances of this exclusive club is that you can only apply to become a member if you live in Southampton. www.themeadowclubofsouthampton.comThe Maidstone ClubPerhaps the inspiration behind his famous phrase “I refuse to join any club that would have me as a member,” Groucho Marx was able to play at the Golf Club at the Maidstone as a member guest, but turned down as a potential member. Also, contrary to popular belief, the movie Caddyshack did not result in the membership application of actor Chevy Chase being declined. www.maidstoneclub.orgThe Golf ClubsShinnecock HillsShinnecock Hills is the most well-known golf club in the Hamptons, having played host multiple times to the U.S. Open Golf tournament at least once in every century since its foundation.

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — There are just three games left during the regular season and one of them is tonight.Fredonia (3-2) at Belle Plaine (5-0) — Sumner County’s most intriguing football team, the Belle Plaine Dragons, comes home for the first time in almost a month when it hosts Fredonia.Fredonia is an intriguing matchup in that it defeated Cherryvale 29-22, the team that has given Belle Plaine the most trouble this season. It has two losses, a 42-17 defeat against Eureka and 50-14 loss to Humboldt.The Dragons need to start focusing on playoff positioning. A win here will set up a battle with Eureka for the district championship next week. Belle Plaine beat Fredonia 28-23 in 2018.———Conway Springs (4-1) at Whitewater-Remington (0-5) — This game should be a snoozer. Whitewater-Remington has had just one game where it has been within a touchdown and has never scored more than two touchdowns in one game. It’s a one-hour plus drive for the Cardinals with Chaparral and Garden Plain looming.———South-Central (5-0) at Caldwell (4-1) — Huge game for the Bluejays. South-Central has dismantled pretty much everyone so far this season. In the past two weeks, the Timberwolves have defeated Udall 49-0 and Medicine Lodge 48-0. The defense has allowed just three touchdowns this season.———Oxford (2-3) at Argonia-Attica (3-2) at Argonia — A&A is 2-0 in the Class 8-man Div. 1 District 2. A&A could be playing South Central in week #8 for the district enchilada. A&A destroyed Oxford 70-20 in 2018. The Titans should win again, but the Wildcats are much better.———Pretty Prairie (2-3) at South Haven (1-4) — South Haven picked up its first win with a huge 52-6 victory over Burrton. It has a chance to get its second tonight. Pretty Prairie was 44-26 victor over the same Burrton team. South Haven defeated Pretty Prairie 58-12 in 2018.Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
