A 1930 alumnus of Cornell, Robert Trent Jones created yet another masterpiece alongside his legacy of countless offerings to the golf world. Having played the course competitively during high school, with fond memory of several New York State top-five finishes, RTJ annually hosts the New York State Public High School Athletic Association Golf Championships.

It has also hosted Ivy League Conference Championships, and even claims a USGA Junior Amateur to its long list of accolades. The course plays to 6900 yards, par 72, with a 73.2 rating and a 139 slope. This “beautiful” course twists through tight tree-lined fairways, with small, fast greens awaiting your best approach. RTJ is located just at the edge of the Cornell University campus and offers every bit of challenge to work through the bag and use creativity to post a good round. Many of its long par fours require precision tee placement and the par fives, while accessible, don’t offer any easy birdie opportunities.

Located just under an hour North of Binghamton, weekday fees are just $40, and weekend fees are $55 for non-student and non- alumni.
