Robert Trent Jones Golf Club Virginia

Explore Prince William County and Washington DC at the Solheim Cup 2024.

September 19, 2023
Solheim Cup

Less than a year after Team USA and Europe do battle at Finca Cortesin, the Solheim Cup returns to U.S. soil, and fittingly one of the most historic sights of American history.

Prince William County History

Located Southwest of Arlington, VA, historic Prince William County provides the perfect setting for the 19th edition of the Solheim Cup.

Flanked by the Potomac River, fed by the Occoquan and Bull Run rivers, this naturally beautiful region encompasses two large state parks, the Prince William Forrest Park and the Manassas National Battlefield Park.

The latter was the site of two major American Civil War battles, the First Battle of Manassas on July 21, 1861, which marked the first major conflict of the Civil War. ‘The Second Battle of Manassas’ was fought in 1862, and combined, these battles are commonly referred to as the first and second battles of Bull Run.

Manassas National Battlefield Park

Robert Trent Jones Golf Club

The course at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club was designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., following the discovery of the land in the 1980’s. On opening in April 1991, he claimed this layout to be his masterpiece.

Lake Manassas, a man-made lake that supplies water to the city, now provides one of the most scenic backdrops in golf, with the course layout cutting in and out of the lake’s shores.

The result is a serene, natural setting enjoyed by members escaping the bustle and strains of Washington, D.C. The prestigious list of members is rumored to include former president Barak Obama, while he occupied the Oval Office.

The course has a significant match-play pedigree, having hosted the first four Presidents Cups that took place on U.S. soil. RTJGC was also home to a Tiger Woods-hosted PGA Tour event in 2015.

The tranquil setting will provide the perfect contrast to the drama that will unfold during the tournament. Team USA and Team Europe have developed a feisty rivalry in recent years that looks set to continue less than 12 months after Finca Cortesin.

Washington, D.C., and the U.S. Capital

For fans attending the 2024 Solheim Cup, Prince William County – and wider Northern Virginia (NOVA) – will provide ample attractions and facilities to keep you entertained off the course. However, another great benefit of the location is the easy access to the U.S. capital city of Washington, D.C., and its many national landmarks.

Less than 45 minutes from the golf course is the District of Columbia the U.S. capital its many memorials, monuments, and museums, all within walking distance. These include the White House, the U.S. Capitol, the Lincoln Memorial, and the Washington Monument. We highly recommend taking a day during your trip to experience the home of U.S. politics.
