I know you’ve heard about the controversy delaying it, but did you know that Donald Trump’s golf resort project in Scotland is officially under development?
It’s true, but apparently other media outlets don’t think this is as newsworthy as the battle leading up to it.
I certainly disagree, and I think you will, too, particularly when you find out why this project is poised to create, “one of the most attractive golf vacation destinations in the entire United Kingdom.”
Even more amazing: these words come from the hard-to-please critics at Golf Odyssey, not Donald Trump.
Here’s exactly what they said in the January 2010 issue of Golf Odyssey:
“Trump International Golf Links Scotland promises to add cachet to the already quite impressive golf scene in the realm of Aberdeen.
The Trump property’s immediate golf neighbor is Murcar Golf Links, a very fine course that we always enjoy playing.
Right next to Murcar is the glorious Royal Aberdeen, one of the half dozen greatest courses in Scotland.
And not 15 miles to the north is Cruden Bay, a hauntingly beautiful, whimsical, and idiosyncratic natural links that also rates among our favorite courses in Scotland
If Donald Trump realizes his vision and brings two more stunning links courses to Aberdeenshire, this portion of Scotland’s northern coast will surely become one of the most attractive destinations in the UK.”
Personally, my money is on Trump. Regardless of how you feel about him, you can’t deny that the man gets things done.
