Where is Turnberry?
Trump Turnberry is a golf resort in South Ayrshire, South West Scotland.
It is made up of three sites, a golf course, a golf academy and a five-star designer hotel.
Donald’s son Eric said: “His mother – my grandmother – is from Scotland.
“We just love this country, we love the UK in general and it’s a big part of our lives. It’s a big part of his life, pre-politics, and that can only be a positive.”
He added: “I know… he loves this property more than anything in the world”.
When did Donald Trump buy the Scotland golf course?
Trump was controversially granted permission to build a golf course at Balmedie by the Scottish Government in April 2014.
He splashed £200million to renovate the hotel built in 1906, with an aim to make it the finest golf and spa resort in the world.
