He actually bought this land in the hopes of attracting a world-class membership because there was a need to create a world-renowned golf course in the area. He called this course "my masterpiece," and it opened for play in April 1991.RTJ has a clubhouse that is a "65000sqft Georgian-style mansion, with its red brick exterior and stately white columns and portico serves as the clubhouse," and the club does not allow for residential development, but does allow members of the club to construct cottages.
