Designs for Trump's golf resort revealed

by Helen Patenall | 01 Oct 2009

Gareth Hoskins Architects has unveiled the designs for Donald Trump's £1bn golf resort in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

The Trump International - Scotland golf complex on Menie Estate near Balmedie will include two 18-hole golf courses designed by golf architect Martin Hawtree, which will be separated by a clubhouse open to guests and visitors, a caddyshack, a short-game practice area and a driving range.

Additional recreational activities will include an equestrian centre, an archery range and a tennis facility, while the accommodation offering will comprise a 450-bedroom hotel with a conference centre and a spa overlooking the sea, adjacent to 950 holiday apartments and golf villas.

A residential village based around a central square with shops, cafes, pubs and playgrounds will also be open to residents and visitors alike.

In December, the scheme was granted outline planning approval by the Scottish Government following a public inquiry into the proposals, which were initially refused by Aberdeenshire Council in 2007 owing to strong local opposition.

Aberdeenshire Council will discuss the resolution of remaining land ownership issues at the 500-hectare site on 1 October.
