Trump International Statement – Clubhouse Application
Due to the success of the championship course which has exceeded all expectations and continues to attract glowing international reviews and rating, we are proposing to build a permanent clubhouse on site this autumn and have submitted a planning application to Aberdeenshire Council.
Mr Trump is fully committed to protecting his investment to date and part of that is to build a clubhouse commensurate with the status of our golf course which is now regarded as one of the greatest golf properties in the world. All future phases of the resort are, however, are on hold until the threat of the EOWDC is completely removed.
Donald J. Trump said: “The course has turned out to be a phenomenal success and has received some of the greatest reviews ever given to a golf course. I felt it was only fair to this great course that I build a beautiful new clubhouse. It would be disrespectful not to have done so. When completed, our clubhouse at Trump International Golf Links, Scotland will be a true classic and beauty!”
Andy McNair, Director, Covell Matthews stated: “This Clubhouse will provide facilities of the very high standard visitors have come to expect from the Trump brand. Golf tradition is steeped in history and the Clubhouse has been designed to reflect this, drawing on the rich architectural diversity found in Aberdeenshire.
“Macleod House, a B-Listed property, is the architectural centre piece of Menie Estate. This prominent building has been recently converted to luxury guest accommodation and is located en-route to the golf course. The proposed Clubhouse draws precedent from the style, details and materials to create a building that is in keeping with the aesthetic of Menie Estate.”
