"This is truly the greatest golf course anywhere in the world"
By mustang6560 on 7/11/12
Seven years, $150 million, and countless controversies later, Trump International Golf Links in Aberdeenshire, Scotland is now a reality for Donald Trump.
The "greatest golf course in the world", according to The Donald, opened yesterday with all the bells and whistles you would expect from the billionaire. Former Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie was on hand to watch Donald hit the ceremonial first tee shot. Regardless of your personal opinion about the man, the course is a thing of beauty.

And even though the course just officially opened yesterday, Trump International Golf Links, which opens to the public Sunday, is impressing critics. Golf World already has it ranked at number eight on its UK course list, which is higher than Royal Lytham and St Annes - the host of the Open Championship next week. If anyone is planning to play this course in the near future, be sure to let me know so

Dislike the man but: Give him credit for this work. Anyone know what the green fees will be. Just so I know how much I save by not being able to afford it.
"The course opens to the public on Sunday, with green fees costing $310 on a weekend or $233 on a weekday, the same price as the summer rate on the prestigious Old Course at St. Andrews."

Trump is a chump.
good looking post impact position though...

Trump is a blowhard ("Trump National (L.A.) is better than Pebble!"), but this new links course is undeniably magnificent. Actually, all of his courses are pretty awesome, I'd love to play any of them.
