Robert Trent Jones Golf Club provides a total Member experience that is second to none. The course architect and patriarch, Robert Trent Jones, Sr., set the bar high by creating his masterpiece from a special parcel on Lake Manassas that he considered to be the best golf course land he’d ever seen. The vision for the Club was crafted by its founding Trustees who insisted that every detail of the facility and the service be first-class. They shared the vision with the founding Members and instilled it in the staff in an enduring way. Members and their guests enjoy the fruits of the founders’ vision, The RTJ Experience, every time they visit the Club and it never gets old. It feels just as good on the 100th visit as on the first."
