where the older Jewish money belonged


Senior Member
Hello everyone,

From the book Thank You for Being Late by Thomas Friedman.

Brookview eventually relocated and built a new course in Hamel, a more westerly suburb, and my dad died there from a heart attack on thepar-four fifteenth hole, when I was nineteen. He lied three. After he passed away in 1973, I was walking down the fairway at Oakridge Country Club, where the older Jewish money belonged, playing with a friend of my father’s.

Does "where the older Jewish money belonged" mean on that fairway at Oakridge Country Club rich/wealthy older Jewish people played?

Thank you.

    He means there was a general belief that wealthy Jews who had inherited their money should belong to the Oakridge Country Club.
