This Course destroyed ancient sand dunes and Farmer's Livelihood! Aug. 5 2012
By D. A. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is propaganda supporting a myth. The truth is that Trump forced people off their land, cut off peoples water supply and the project destroyed an ancient sand dune area of Scotland so the 1% could have a golf course. Arrogance at its worst!

You might think he's a jerk.... Nov. 18 2011
By JP Czar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
but Trump knows how to get things done. This was a very good read about what it takes to get a golf course built in Scotland a-mid the environmental folks and the local decision makers.

Anyone interested in building a course over there might take this page-turner as a what-you-might-expect to run into...

I would recommend this book to folks researching golf in Scotland....
