Architect Robert Trent Jones

The legend of Trent Jones about the tree of hole 3 (Quinta da Marinha):

The story says that during the construction of the Golf Course, in 1984, there was a debate about the "famous" tree of hole 3.

They were on the Tee, Robert Trent Jones Sr, Cabell Robinson (who worked for RTJ) and the owner of the Golf Course. Apparently the tree was in the way of what would be a "Must Drive" hole.

Cabell Robinson and the owner argued about the tree. The young Cabell Robinson wanted to remove the tree, to allow a possible aggressive shot towards the green. The owner was not convinced, because he thought the tree would give a particular touch to the hole.

When the discussion became worst, Robert Trent Jones told them:
- Let's apply the Golden Rule to this hole!
- The Golden Rule? - the others asked
- Yes, who has the gold makes the rule! - Trent Jones explained

The tree is still there until today (and makes golfers think about it).
