The Sandcastle Lido Beach is an old favorite (see here). They seem to run their cards dual image, vertical print. Here’s the Wiki on Bobby Jones, of the golf course: Robert Tyre “Bobby” Jones Jr. (March 17, 1902 – December 18, 1971) was an American amateur golfer, and a lawyer by profession, who was one of the most influential figures in the history of the sport. Jones founded and helped design the Augusta National Golf Club, and co-founded the Masters Tournament. The innovations that he introduced at the Masters have been copied by virtually every professional golf tournament in the world.
The lady golfer reminds of of a Nancy Drew mystery. There’s plump Bess Marvin and Ned Nickerson with Carson Drew in the background. Seems like the Sandcastle would be a lovely place to stay. And stay you can. Here’s the image on the top of the card, today (courtesy of the Sandcastle Resort website):
