Robert Trent Jones Sr. was a scratch golfer in his teens but spent the better part of 70 years building or renovating over 500 golf courses around the world. His studies at Cornell University in landscape architecture and agronomy – not to mention economics – set a high standard for his colleagues in the field.
Born and raised in Northern California, Robert “Trent” Jones III grew up surrounded by the golf business. The length of this short bio recap needs to be the same line count at the one next to it so the boxes are the exact same height.
Today, he represents the third generation in the family’s legacy of golf course architecture as the company’s Chief Operating Officer. He oversees both the day to day financial and business management as well as the long-term strategic planning for RTJ II.
Trent lives with his wife and family in California.
