Ranking Donald Trump’s golf courses from playable to pompous

President Donald Trump may be overseas, but in the U.S. he is very much back in the thick of golf media. 

Donald Trump owns 19 golf courses, two of which will be hosting tournaments in 2017. The Senior PGA Championship is currently being hosted at Trump National Washington D.C. and The U.S. Women’s Open will be Trump National Bedminster in July.

There has been some controversy surrounding the Women’s Open being hosted by a Trump course because of his remarks towards women during his campaign trail. Even with a petition going around asking for a switch in venues, the LPGA did not change courses. Recently LPGA players and Mike Davis of the USGA told the public that they will not answer political questions during their time at the Trump owned course.

“This is not supposed to be a political spectacle. It’s a golf tournament.”

While they may want to stay out of politics, it will be hard to keep the politics at bay. Of course there has been no word on the topic at the Senior PGA Championship, where a bunch of old white men gather around comparing sticks.

Anyways, since Donald Trump and the professional golf community love his courses so much, why not dive in and take a closer look? These are his current golf courses, although he has a few projects in the works. From a links course in the Bronx to capitalizing on the home of professional golfers.
