Private Preview 2007: St. Andrews Golf: Linking To The Homeland

Mike Nolan

A hundred miles north of St. Andrews, American businessman Donald Trump plans to dig into his Scottish roots (his mother was born in Scotland) with a new golf resort that will include two links-style courses. Trump’s site, which sits along the North Sea on the Menie Estate, just north of Balmedie, encompasses approximately 800 acres of dunes that reach as high as 100 feet, and the developer plans to leave the terrain mostly in its natural state. The first of the two courses, both of which will be designed by Tom Fazio II, son of Jim Fazio and nephew of Tom, is scheduled to open in late 2007 or early 2008. Along with the courses, the $500 million development will include a hotel, golf academy, turf-grass research center, and, subject to approval, a mixed-use residential component.
