Championship Carolina Golf

Golf Course Architect-Robert Trent Jones, Sr.


Our Lake and Creek courses were designed by legendary architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr. During his career he designed or re-designed nearly 500 courses in at least 40 states in the U.S. and 35 countries around the world. At Carolina Trace Country Club, members are fortunate to have two courses designed by such a world renowned architect.

Robert Trent Jones, Sr. worked with golf legend Bobby Jones on the Peachtree course in Atlanta and again on the Augusta National course, the home of the annual Masters Tournament. Jones, Sr. became a national celebrity with his complete re-design of the Oakland Hills South course for the U.S. Open Tournament in 1951. He immediately became the "Open Doctor" and in quick succession re-designed such major venues as Baltusrol-Lower course, Olympic-Lake course, Southern Hills, Oak Hill and Congressional Country Club. Among the many courses Jones, Sr. designed are: Dorado Beach in Puerto Rico, Bellerive in Missouri, Hazeltine in Minnesota, Shady Oaks in Texas, Upper Montclair in New Jersey and Spyglass in California.

In addition to these accomplishments, Jones, Sr. helped found the American Society of Golf Course Architects, and was the first golf course architect inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in St. Augustine, Florida.

Robert Trent Jones, Sr. designed the Carolina Trace Country Club Lake Course in 1971 and the Creek Course in 1979.
