You’ve probably been hearing about the flap between Donald Trump and the country of Scotland.
In a nutshell, Scotland is planning to build a bunch of wind farms, including one offshore near Trump’s soon-to-open golf course and planned resort.
Trump says wind turbines are so ugly, noisy, and dangerous they would not only ruin his project but lead to, “the almost total destruction of [Scotland’s] tourism industry.”
Last week, when Trump made this statement to Scotland’s Parliament, the country’s tourism arm (VisitScotland) released survey results showing that wind farms would have little negative impact on tourism.
The survey was based on 3,000 people — not necessarily golfers — and only those from the UK.

So, will seeing (and possibly hearing) wind turbines ruin the Scottish golf experience?
Would you avoid certain Scottish regions or courses if wind turbines were present? (For example, one just went up near Royal Aberdeen’s 14th hole.)
