By Alan Bastable Here’s the takeaway from my highly unscientific study of hundreds of golf club logos: Most of them stink, and for sundry reasons. Some are unimaginative, others outdated, others just plain ugly. It’s a shame, because logos are important, or at least they should be important. A well conceived emblem makes a statement or even tells a story. It can draw knowing or inquisitive looks from passers-by on the range and spark conversations between strangers at the bar. (“You’ve played at John Doe Country Club? My cousin Mikey made a hole in one there!”) Yet sadly too many logos swing and miss. I mean, c’mon, Chardonnay Golf Club in American Canon, Calif.: Of all the creative vino-themed designs you could have conjured (A flagstick in a wine barrel! A cork golf ball! A swinging sommelier!), you settled on this leafy mess?
