The Trump has unveiled his controversial fairway.
The world’s biggest property mogul is yet again under the spotlight. But this time, Donald Trump’s newest project has some controversy in the bag.
On July 10th, The Donald drove the first ball in his Scottish fairway. In a news article from The Guardian UK, Trump claims that this project is the “greatest golf course in the world”. However, environmentalists and property neighbors think otherwise.
Former Ryder Cup captain, Colin Montgomerie was instrumental in the acquisition of the land despite disapproval of the Scottish Wildlife Trust. The property with a stunning view of the Northern Sea has been selected as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) because of the gradual northward movement of the sand dunes in the area.
The Golf Environment Organization complained of the “considerable negative impact on what was one of UK’s most valuable mobile sand dune systems”. This organization is known for vetting courses and is heavily supported by the European Tour.
Despite best efforts to keep things on a positive light, the Trumps were labeled “ridiculous monsters” that are out to “destroy Scotland”.
Donal Trump can’t hide under golf cart covers in this one. Several neighbors of the property are still complaining about the environmental destruction, buy outs and various forms of harassment from Trump’s camp.
