Sam Bowie is an ex-basketball player who got accepted at an exclusive all-white country club making him the first African American to get accepted there

Sam Bowie made a bit of a history by getting accepted at the Lexington’s Idle Hour Country Club and becoming the first African American to become a member of that club.

Sam Bowie was an ex Los Angeles Lakers player, who had a bit of an injury-prone career. Despite his 7 foot 1 inches, he could not make full use of his height and built as he got injured a lot of times and even broke his bones, and this limited his capacity to play.

Sam Bowie retired from basketball then and pursued his interests of horse racing and rearing.

On getting accepted at the Idle Hour’s Country Club, Sam Bowie said, “I’m very flattered, very honored, very appreciative. This wasn’t about me making history,” said the retired Los Angeles Lakers player. But, he added, “whether I …want it to be a historical event or not, it is.”
