ambushSurely that’s what Roy Bechtol and Randy Russell (together or apart) felt when Lajitas announced that Lanny Wadkins would assume responsibility for redesigning the golf course out there after the massive flood.  I shot this one back in 2001.  Couple of questions:  Why wouldn’t they bring Bechtol and/or Russell back for the fix?  Both of them know every square inch of that place.  They know the drainage issues, environmental challenges, agronomic nuances and everything else better than anyone.  And with all due respect to Lanny, his playing career and his golf course design philosophy, if they were looking for a “name” to attach to the design, why not go get one that commands a bigger bang for the buck in terms of dirt selling?  I don’t expect an answer.  Just curious.
