A golf club owned by Donald Trump located in Scotland, Turnberry, has been included by the British Federgolf in a sort of blacklist that will prevent the facility from hosting the prestigious tournament The Open Championship, also known as The Open or British Open, due to the controversial image that the former president maintains in the UK.

The R&A, which organizes the oldest golf tournament in the world, has rejected the prospect of selecting the Turnberry golf club for a future edition, the Daily Telegraph reported. A decision destined to displease the former president of the United States who has never made a secret of dreaming of being able to host the Open in his club.
The only solution for Trump, suggests the British newspaper, is the transfer of ownership of Turnberry, so as to defuse security concerns due to potential protests, easily predictable if Trump were somehow attributable and associated with the tournament.
Four editions of the British tournament have been held in Turnberry, including that of 2009, before the purchase of Trump, which took place in 2014 for 60 million dollars. During Trump's last visit, last May, his son Eric had declared that significant capital had been invested in the club, following the directives of the general manager of the R&A, Peter Dawson, to make the structure as compliant as possible with Open standards .
Money that obviously wasn't enough to convince the organizing committee to release the facility's suitability Donald John Trump is an American politician, entrepreneur and television personality, who served as the 45th president of the United States from 2017 to 2021.
With assets estimated at $2.5 billion in 2023, Trump has been involved in over four thousand lawsuits, including six bankruptcies. The brand management strategies, the books he wrote and published and his lifestyle made him a famous character, whose fame was increased by cameos and participations in films and television broadcasts.
Candidate in the 2016 presidential election, he surprisingly beat the Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton. Trump's political positions have been described as populist, protectionist, isolationist, nationalist, racist or discriminatory in nature.
During his electoral campaign and presidency, Trump made extensive use of social networks to disseminate news not supported by sources and conspiracy theories.
