Robert Trent Jones II is a renowned golf course architect who has been integrating golf with sensitive environments since the 1970s. His designs focus on enhancing habitats while creating strategic and playable golf courses. Rainmakers Resort and Club partnered with Jones due to their shared belief in preserving natural beauty for a better golfing experience. With over 250 designs, Jones has achieved Golf Digest’s No. 1 status in 10 countries. He takes pride in this New Mexican course, especially the pinon-and-juniper foothills beneath the Sacramento Mountains, where he designed a splendid course at Rainmakers.
Jones has designed many celebrated golf courses worldwide, including Chambers Bay in Washington, The Links at Spanish Bay in California, Sunday River in Maine, and the Celtic Manor in Wales, the host for the 2010 Ryder Cup. He has left his hallmark for quality and creativity on more than 240 championship courses on six continents. Rainmakers Resort and Club is proud to join this elite portfolio.
“In the case of The Golf Course at Rainmakers, the land spoke with two distinct voices. The amazing scenery called out with distant views of layered juniper- and pinon-covered hills transitioning to snow-capped mountains, while the golf course site itself whispered softly with the rugged accent of the American desert. Both voices harmonize in the final design.”
