Trump: Golf is for the Rich. Get off my lawn!

Trump: Golf is for the Rich. Get off my lawn!

“Golf should be something beautiful, elegant, something people aspire to play eventually.

It may be elitist, and perhaps that’s what golf needs. Let golf be elitist. When I say ‘aspire,’ that’s a positive word. Let people work hard and aspire to some day be able to play golf. To afford to play it. They’re trying to teach golf to people who will never be able to really play it. They’re trying too hard. Because of the expense of playing, and the land needed, golf is never going to be basketball, where all you need is a court.”

— “Donald Trump: Let golf be for the rich elite,” Daniel Roberts, Fortune

 The Trump Golf Portfolio includes 16 courses in operation. One of them is Perry Point, a municipal course in the Bronx, poorest borough of New York City.
