Trent Jones and the Legend Around the Tree of Hole Number 3: The Story tells that at some point during the golf construction, year 1984, there was a debate around the “famous” tree of the 3rd Hole. Robert Trent Jones Sr, Cabell Robinson (who at that time was working for RTJ) and the Golf Owner were on the Tee. Apparently the Tree was in the way of a great “Must Drive” hole . Cabell Robinson and the Owner did not agree about that Tree. The Young Cabell Robinson wanted to remove it, so that a clear shot towards the green was possible. The Owner of the Course was not convinced, as he thought the Tree would give a particular touch to the hole. When discussion got bigger, the wise Robert Trent Jones said to both: -On this one, we will apply the Golden Rule! -Golden Rule? – the others asked -Exactly, the one who has the Gold makes the Rule!- explained Trent Jones. So the Tree remains there until today (giving every Golfer something to think about)
