Robert Trent Jones Golf Club


“The challenge, aesthetic beauty and conditioning excellence of this course place it in the upper echelon on the East Coast. RT Jones Sr. demands draws off tee boxes at #7, 10, 12, 14, 15, 17 and 18 and fades from 1, 3, 5 and 6. And on #13 he punishes a drawn tee ball with a crafted fairway that slopes downhill and to the left towards the water almost forcing the player to lay back a bit on an extremely long and difficult par 4. Shaved down areas transitioning from fairways into bunkers is a tribute to Scottish designs. But the 40 foot false front at #11 sends golf balls arriving even a pace short of the par 3 elevated green trickling backwards to a watery death below. The purity, complexity and speeds of greens makes for the flagship of this uniquely wonderful golf course. Stone walls and walkways at #9, 11 and 14 compliment a visually astounding lakeside wedding venue at #10. Lake Manassas is incorporated into this architectural design with creativity and ingenuity on holes #9-13 and 15-18.”
