9 Hole Robert Trent Jones, Sr. Golf Course
(An additional 9 holes are laid out and ready for completion.) Robert Trent Jones, Sr. (June 20, 1906 ï¿½ June 14, 2000) was a golf course architect who designed (or re-designed) about 500 golf courses in at least 40 US states and 35 other countries all around the world. It has been jokingly said that, "The sun never sets on a Robert Trent Jones golf course."Jones' courses are noted for their artistic landscaping, innovative use of bunkers, liberal use of water hazards, and deft placement of greens and hazards that encourage a high level of strategy. He believed that golf should be a no risk; no reward sport and his designs encouraged daring play. Trent's reputation was made. He became "The Open Doctor" - the man to whom clubs turned in prepping their course for a U.S. Open.
Jones received the 1987 Old Tom Morris Award from the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America, GCSAA's highest honor. He was also inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1987 as well.
