Trump officially unveils Menie golf course
July 10 2012
Dedicating the course to his mother, Mary MacLeod, Trump said: “We’ve built what many people are considering the greatest golf course anywhere in the world – I’m very proud of that.”
Members of the public will be able to book time on the course, built on a site of special scientific interest, as well as purchase Trump products and merchandise from the shop and dine in a dedicated site restaurant.
The Scottish Wildlife Trust are imploring people to boycott the most environmentally sensitive areas of the course.
Plans to erect a hotel and hundreds of homes have been put on hold pending a decision to erect a series of offshore wind turbines which Trump attests will negatively effect views.
The course, designed by golf architectural practice Hawtree Ltd, will officially open to the public on Sunday.
