New Trump Course Complete

We at PerryGolf are very excited to read that work has been completed at Donald Trump’s new golf course at Balmedie in Aberdeenshire.  The course development got off to a rocky start with some objections from local groups; but they seem to have created a world class course – whether the Trump International Golf Links will be the best course in the world as Mr Trump claims, remains to be seen but we are looking forward to July next year when the course opens for play.

This new addition makes Aberdeen a ‘must visit’ region of Scotland on a golf tour with other great courses like Royal Aberdeen, Murcar and Cruden Bay also on your doorstep.

Being based in Scotland, we watch developments with Donald Trump’s Aberdeenshire project with particular interest, and it seems like the project is finally getting underway now.  This will no doubt be a great addition to an area that already boasts some fantastic courses such as Royal Aberdeen (host to 2011 Walker Cup matches), it’s lesser known hidden gem of a neighbour, Murcar; and, of course Cruden Bay only 45 minutes up the coast.  As for Mr Trump’s claim that it will be the “world’s greatest golf course”, that remains to be seen!  He has pretty tough competition on his doorstep never mind the rest of the world.
