I really like playing tournaments, but taking an entire day (or more) to play in them is tough given all of my other commitments.

They are two different experiences, that's for sure. I totally agree that Lincoln Ridge is more fun for a casual round.

I would say Lincoln Ridge. Yes, it is nicely maintained and it's 24 holes, but the design is just average IMO. I have seen a few reviews where people say they like this course better than Idlewild...
