Donald Trump's proposed golf course in Scotland rejected
“Mr. Trump is shocked, extremely disappointed and dismayed at this decision,” George Sorial, managing director of Trump International Golf Resorts, told the AP."This is certainly not something we expected.”
Aberdeen’s city council finally pulled the plug on the estimated $2.1 billion resort, which has faced strong local opposition, especially from environmentalists concerned about the sand dunes on which the course was to be built, which they say should be protected.
Trump has been trying to build the golf course for nearly four years now. The plans included an 18-hole championship course, a 450-room hotel, 950 vacation homes, 36 villas and 500 upscale condos.
But recently Trump had hinted that he might pull the plug on the project himself, since he was facing such strong opposition for the real estate component of the golf course plan. Trump has said that the course, if alone, would likely lose him money and that there needed to be a strong real estate component in order for the project to be profitable.
