Trump breaks ground on second Scotland course

Trump breaks ground on second Scotland course

After almost a seven-year hiatus, Trump Golf is again active in golf course development. The company broke ground in early May on a second course at Trump Golf International Scotland.

The company placed a number of projects on hold when Donald Trump became U.S. President in 2016. But the former chief executive never lost his penchant for golf.

“We are going to build a great golf course that aims to replicate the outstanding championship links we already have here and many believe to be the greatest golf course in the world,” Trump told Golf Business News, an online news source in the U.K. “We will build a course that will be fit to host many great championships in the future along with our championship links.”

The new course will be named the MacLeod course — dedicated to his mother, Mary Anne MacLeod.

“This project is very close to my heart as the course will be dedicated to my late mother and that is a source of great pride to me and my family,” Trump said. “My mother was an incredible woman who loved Scotland. She returned here every year and she loved the Queen.”

Eric Trump, who oversees the family golf business, said the site has potential to be the best in its portfolio. Martin Hawtree, the architect who designed the initial championship course, is also designing the MacLeod course.
