Chuck, you have put some time into the Brooks Championship course already. I can understand that you want to go play a tourney and not having to run it. I would rather play too. And Thomas was a great guy that had a wonderful personality. Glad I have one of the orginal baskets he and Don made for the first Texas states. A couple of wekends ago in Baton Rouge; I saw the first ever "proto type" storkesaver made by Thomas. It had a strange looking piece of metal for the base. I wish I could go. However, my weekends open to working on the new course are very limited, so I need to work instead of play. I'm hoping we get some new blood to step up to help clear. So far Matt and Nick from Iowa said they could help.
We're working in the shade if that matters to anyone.
To your question what makes a course "championship". I would think many things go into a course looking and functioning as a championship course. Look at most of the courses in Houston, then compare to say Wimberley; all the differences; that's what makes a course champioship material. Lenght is just one criteria.
