Having embarked upon his career in golf course architecture in 1962, Robert Trent Jones, Jr. has designed and remodeled more than 200 golf courses during his years of service to the golf industry.

Bobby, the son of Ione and Robert Trent Jones, Sr., was born in 1939 in Montclair, New Jersey. He graduated from Yale University with a Bachelors degree in 1961 and commenced graduate studies at Stanford University. Realizing that golf played an important role in his life, Bobby began his career at Robert Trent Jones, Inc. in 1962, where he became Vice President, and was afforded responsibility for all west coast operations.

Bobby also supervised the activities in the Asia-Pacific region, where he worked closely with clients to create the first golf course completed by an American designer in that region. In the late 1960's, recognizing that it was time to expand his ideas to a broader forum, Bobby began creating his own golf courses which eventually led to the formation of his own company, Robert Trent Jones II (RTJ2) in the early 1970's.

Bobby has contributed substantially to the game of golf in other ways as well. He has served on the USGA Green Section Committee for a number of years and also served on the Urban Land Institute's Recreational Development Council. Bobby has authored several articles regarding golf and the environment, and was instrumental in bringing golf and the environment to the forefront through his service as Chairman of the State Parks and Recreation Commission in California from 1980-1983. Additionally, he has been sought out as a keynote speaker at various golf conferences and seminars in the United States and around the world.

In 1993, Bobby completed his first book, entitled Golf by Design, an instruction manual on how to play better golf by reading the golf course features. He also served as President of the American Society of Golf Course Architects in 1989.
