They say last week’s decision by Aberdeen shire council planners to approve the course could have a catastrophic impact on the area’s delicate environment. As a result, conservation experts had urged Aberdeen shire council to withhold planning permission for the second golf course at Genie that Trump had asked to build.
“This decision gives a green light to the Trump organization to further vandalize and destroy Scotland’s natural heritage,” said Bob Ward, policy director at the Grant ham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment. However, so far he has constructed only one 18-hole course, which is open seven months a year, a practice range, and a small clubhouse with a restaurant and shop; he also converted Genie’s manor house into a boutique hotel with 16 rooms.
The total debt for the club, which opened in 2012, is more than $16 million, the London Times has reported. Despite the losses, the Trump Organization has reported massive outlays at the properties over the years.
It also has won approval to build a 500-unit housing development at a cost of $185 million next to the club in Aberdeen shire, which it intends to pursue, according to the latest filing. The resort losses are so astronomical that some Scottish officials are suspicious about financing and taxes.
But Trump couldn’t possibly have spent all the outlays he claims on his properties, Davidson said. Trump National Golf Club, located on the shores of Lake Norman in North Carolina, features state-of-the-art amenities for the whole family to enjoy.
Before Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, he was well-known in the golf community as the namesake of the courses and grounds that share his name. The Trump Organization also manages TrumpGolf Links at Ferry Point in New York.
