Trump officially unveils Menie golf course
Donald Trump has teamed up with golfer Colin Montgomerie to officially unveil Trump Golf Links Scotland; a golf course, golf house and practice facility at Menie, Aberdeenshire.

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.
