Robert Trent Jones, Sr. designed Hazeltine National Golf Club in Minnesota for a membership that aimed for one goal: Hosting a national championship.
Jones got his wish when Hazeltine GC, which opened in 1962, was
selected to be the site of the 1970 U.S. Open, won by Tony Jacklin.
No living course architect has built a course that has hosted the U.S. Open since. And Robert Trent Jones, Jr., the son of the late Hazeltine builder, knew that.
