Tanglewood Park’s west golf course has had its share of names lately. It got a new one Monday. It has been called the West Course. The PGA Course.  And the Vantage Course. Now it is to be called the Championship Course. Edwin Allman, chairman of the park’s golf committee, recommended the change Monday. He added a promise: “We’re not going to change it any more … for a while.”
