A temporary clubhouse is required by next summer in order to provide facilities for the first wave of golfers to try out the new course, which will be ready before the permanent clubhouse can be completed.
Scotland’s former lord advocate, Colin Boyd QC, was drafted in by Trump to sell the proposal to planners, declaring it was needed to allow Aberdeenshire to “reap the benefit” of the course immediately.
Permission to erect the 10ft high galvanised steel structure, designed by Covell Matthews Architects, was granted by a majority of 9-2.
The clubhouse proper, designed by Acanthus df, has been shortlisted for a Carbuncle award.
