Daniel Brown, of Craig, putts on the eighth-hole green Friday at Yampa Valley Golf Course. Brown, the 2011 Men’s Club champion, said with the course opening two weeks earlier than normal, he is able to keep his game in shape as he prepares to defend his club title.

In August, Daniel Brown walked onto the Yampa Valley Golf Course for the 2011 Men’s Club Championships and walked off the winner. Brown, a Craig resident, shot a 151 over the two-day tournament to be crowned club champion. On Friday, Brown got an early start on his title defense. A mixture of a mild winter and warm temperatures in March allowed the golf course to open to the public Friday, about two weeks earlier than last year.
