"A great course must always call for courage, skill, strategy, self-control, a test of temper and a revealer of character. A great course must, like life, offer problem solving, intrique, mystery, the ability to be creative, the opportunity to experiment, to challenge your limits and test your character. A great course does not consume energy, it creates energy."
