I grew up in Madison, Wisconsin where I started playing golf on the backyard green at age 2. By age 5 I was drawing golf holes in crayon. In high school my dream was to design a U.S. Open course.

After receiving a degree in Landscape Architecture from the University of Wisconsin, I joined the world-renowned design team at Robert Trent Jones II, LLC.

In my 10+ years at RTJII, I assisted other designers before being promoted to Project Architect. As Project Architect for RTJII, I contributed to the designs and was able to introduce my own design philosophies at Chambers Bay and The Patriot.

On February 8, 2008 the USGA selected Chambers Bay to host the 2015 U.S. Open. The announcement made Chambers Bay the youngest course to ever be awarded a U.S. Open. It also made me, as a member of the RTJII design team, one of the youngest contributing golf architects to ever design a U.S. Open course.

With the creation of Jay Blasi Design, I can now take on projects of all sizes.



The logo for Jay Blasi Design is The Lone Fir from the 15th hole at Chambers Bay. As part of the design team, I identified the tree during design and we fought to save it throughout construction of the course. Shortly after the course opened, The Lone Fir was attacked by vandals but saved by community outreach. Today the tree stands tall and serves as a reference point for golfers throughout their round.

The Lone Fir has been featured on numerous magazine covers.
