Trump bullish on high-end metropolitan courses



Eric Trump, who now effectively runs his family’s golf empire, has faith in the future of ultra high-end golf operations, as long as the properties are located in metropolitan areas.

“During the boom, everybody was building golf courses and doing them in crazy locations,” he explained to “Some amazing golf courses got built, but they happen to be in the middle of ‘you name the place’ and weren’t near any metropolitan city, not near any highway. You had to take a prop plane and then a helicopter to get there. The notion that those would be successful was a little fictitious.”

To review, the Trumps own a close to a dozen U.S., golf properties, all of them near the cities of New York, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, West Palm Beach, Miami, Charlotte and Washington, DC.
