Trump Opens Scottish Golf Resort in Aberdeen

Trump International Golf Links, AberdeenNow open in Aberdeenshire: the Trump International Golf Links. Rounds are available on a "pay-per-play" basis on the 18-hole course. Donald Trump flew to Scotland for the opening ceremony, where he hit with former Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie. On the official website, Trump explains his years-long search for links land in Europe, before settling on Scotland, the home of the game, where the real estate tycoon also has ancestral roots.

The landscape Trump describes as perfect for his development—the “imposing dunes and rugged coastline”—is precisely what the BBC explains has made it a controversial one. Even though the golf course is open, the hotel and residences have thus been put on hold. Designed by Dr. Martin Hawtree, the course has sea views from nearly every hole. It’s close to two world-famous courses, 25 minutes by car from Aberdeen Airport. For more information, visit
