Robert Trent Jones, Sr.
Members and their guests
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.
Lake Manassas is integral to the experience. It captivates you when you first step outside the clubhouse, and it soothes your soul as you walk the magnificent course. The lake and the course provide an incredibly serene setting that is complemented by the way Members and their guests are treated from the moment they enter the property until the time they leave. They can truly relax and enjoy themselves as they escape the outside world.
RTJ is a golf club in the truest sense--there are no tennis courts, there’s no pool, and the members are passionate about the game of golf and respectful of its traditions. Members’ families are welcome, but only when the Member is at the Club--there are no un-escorted minors. It’s all part of the vision to create a unique environment for golf and camaraderie without distraction. It is elegant and at the same time relaxed. You feel the magnificence of the surroundings and yet you can unwind and enjoy uninterrupted time with friends.
