Robert Trent Jones Jnr - A Champion Course Designer

The 115th US Open golf championship has just concluded with an exciting and controversial finish on the 72nd hole where American Jordan Speith was “gifted” the trophy when countryman Dustin Johnson “three-putted” from 12 feet under extreme pressure!

The US Open venue was at Chambers Bay, on the west coast of Washington State. A spectacular and rugged golf course that tested the best professional golfers. Its designer is American Robert Trent Jones Junior, who has designed a number of championship courses around the world.

Two of those championship courses are located in Perth, Western Australia, and both are as impressive as Chambers Bay.

Joondalup Country Club is Western Australia’s #1 public access golf course, with 27 unforgettable golf holes as described by Trent Jones Jnr, “unquestionably one of the world’s finest golfing experiences”. The three courses include The Lakes, an open links style course; The Dunes, a very tight narrow 9 and The Quarry which as the name suggests is cut from an old limestone quarry with the course’s signature par 3 third.

Meadow Springs Golf and Country Club offers golf as nature intended, and another wonderful design by Trent Jones Jnr. Meadow Springs promises a unique experience through open bushland. The course winds its way through undulating terrain, the layout dictated by the natural features of the land. Towering 200-year-old Tuart trees line generous fairways and subtly rolling greens that are equal to the best in Australia.
