Robert Trent Jones, Jr., a world renowned golf course architect,
who has designed more than 130 courses on the continents of
Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and North America.
His style works in harmony with nature and his design philosophy is “great risk/great rewards”. Mr. Jones, son of the dean of golf course architects, Robert Trent Jones, was born in 1939 and graduated from Yale University. After postgraduate work in law at Stanford, Mr. Jones returned home and began an apprenticeship to his father in golf course architecture. Mr. Jones’ courses include the Waikoloa Village Golf Club, The Links at Spanish Bay, Kiahuna Golf Club, Elkhorn Resort Golf Club, Sugarloaf Golf Club and the Princeville Makai Golf Course to name a few.
The Robert Trent Jones, Jr. Signature Golf Course was designed to provide a golfing challenge for all levels of play. Multiple tee locations and pin positions have created golf holes that are enjoyable for the high handicap player as well as a test for the very best players. Each hole harmonizes with its natural surroundings giving the feel and look of an integral part of the natural landscaping.
During the golfing season, our calendar features events for all club members. Throughout the year, we traditionally hold 18-20 men’s events as well as an Evening 9-Hole League. Our men’s outings include special member/guest events such as the Green & Gold and Crystal Classic. The Crystal Tree ladies can take advantage of 18-hole and/or 9-hole league play that includes Guest Day, "Swing For A Cause”, and Fruits of our Labor to name a few. Crystal Tree couples have ample opportunity for golfing with the Friday evening 9-hole outings or 18-hole Saturday afternoon games. Each summer, our children enjoy an active clinic that includes play for the older groups. We also hold club championships for men, ladies, couples and teens.
