The eagerly-anticipated Trump International Golf Links opened in July 2012 to an enormous fanfare and rightly so. The first golf development constructed in Europe by billionaire Donald Trump, the course near Balmedie in Aberdeenshire is nothing short of spectacular and seems destined to host high-profile golf tournaments before too long.
Set amongst what Trump has renamed The Great Dunes of Scotland, the course has been designed by renowned architect Martin Hawtree and makes full use of its stunning natural environment. It is no exaggeration to say that there is not a weak hole on the course, with the par-3 13th and par-4 14th perhaps the two best back-to-back holes.
Maintained to the highest standards, and a supreme test of golf regardless of how strong the wind blowing in off the encroaching North Sea is, the Trump International Golf Links truly is a magnificent addition to Scottish golfs already stellar portfolio.
