Trumps extends golf interests with US investments

2013 08 1 Trump 2
Property magnate Donald Trump has extended his portfolio of golf venues with the purchase of two prestigious clubs in the United States.

Trump, who is responsible for the Trump International development on the Menie Estate in the North East of Scotland, has taken control of both Branton Woods Golf Club in New York and New Jersey's Pine Hill Course.

In an effort to extend the billionaire's golf brand, the clubs will also be renamed, with Pine Hill becoming Trump National Golf Club - Philadelphia and Branton Woods taking the title of Trump National Golf Club - Hudson Valley.

Delighted with his new acquisitions, Trump said: "These two courses are each considered among the finest in the country and I am proud to add them to my growing list of clubs.

"Today, they would be virtually impossible to replicate from the standpoint of receiving governmental and environmental approval or from the standpoint of cost."

In common with Trump's £1billion Aberdeenshire course, which has now begun construction after a long and bitter spell of negotiation with local residents, The Trump Organisation will operate both US courses.
