For a lawyer you're bad at following the rules. 😉

I would give Pasatiempo a 9.7. As close to a perfect card as any. Pinehurst #2 is an 8.5. Really good, and up there, but not quite elite.

Dormie Club and Southern Pines… Let's start with Southern Pines.

It's a bit washed out here as I took the photo outside on a sunny day, as the actual card is quite dark and has a taupe or light sandy color to it with a tinge of green.

As unique as  I find the vertical scorecard, and as classic as those cards can be, I find keeping score left-to-right like this card to be the easiest, so credit to the course for bucking the trend at other courses to do this layout, despite the age of the course. As with Dormie Club below, I appreciate the minimalist look to this card, with the monotone layout, and simple front cover.

It's not a scorecard feature but I like the "Baby Blue" tees (they were truly baby blue), and I like the logo on the front, though you'd think a course with a plural would have more than one pine tree in the logo. 🙂

I give this card a 7.5 out of 10.

Next up, Dormie Club.

Dormie Club goes back to the vertical scorekeeping, which for a new course, doesn't feel quite right. At least it succeeds in offering up four and two spots, which many vertical cards do not. It does so with the combo blue/white tees, labeled with the diamonds, which conserves space.

I don't know that I dig the rounded corners at the bottom. At the top they're okay, because they seem to align, but on the bottom they're shifted and don't "line up" as well. The advertising on the lower right of the inside is a detractor as well.

I do like the two-tone coloration, and I think they do this well as the logo is black, white, and red. I LOVE the front of the card being just their logo, no words, nothing extra. Thank goodness they didn't put the red rounded rects on either of the outside panels. The back of the card is simpler than the Southern Pines card, which I like, and initially I wanted to put this card above Southern Pines, but the negatives drag it down to the same neighborhood. I'm going to have to give this card a 7.8 - the outside makes it a strong contender for a 9.x, but the inside with the rounded rects and advertisement text drag it back down.


Both scorecards are still great, but we're grading on a reverse curve here, so both scorecards rank a 7.x.

Pinehurst #4.

I give it a 7. Very solid solid all around.

You don’t see enough of the stick figure routings. The color scheme is monochromatic but has different shades. Not a fan of the fonts.

Front is great.
