Our Vision For Golf Course Design

At RTJ II, we listen to the land first, then we speak. Hidden within the topography of a great golf site is a cultural and historical legacy that transcends time and place, and which must be honored before a single stone is moved. It is then that our purpose unfolds: how to use nature’s gifts and our years of experience to create a course that will live in one’s memory long after being played. We don’t take on just any project, but will work with anyone who shares our vision: CEOs, heads of state, budget-minded municipalities, private developers, and world-class resorts.

With over 300 courses in 50 countries, Robert Trent Jones Jr. stands as a renowned golf course designer.

Our Legacy as Golf Course Designers

The Robert Trent Jones name has been synonymous with golf course architecture since the late 1930s. Robert Trent Jones Sr. considered architecture an art form, not a science. “Follow the land,” he said famously, “don’t change the land.”  A century later that mantra still serves as the guiding light for the company that defined golf course architecture in the modern era.
