TRUMP NATIONAL GOLF CLUB
The Trump National Golf Club opened January 2006, designed by "The Donald" himself, according to his web site. The course is open to the public, along the beautiful coast of Palos Verdes, CA, with green fees ranging from $375 prime time to $75 Sunset rate. Weekday afternoons are $165. Trump claims intent to be better than Pebble Beach in Carmel, CA. How's that for brass cajones? Anyway, I drove by today and took a few photos of the course and surrounding territory.

1 IMG 0606 Looking NW from Palos Verdes Drive, clubhouse upper right. 2 IMG 0597 Driving range with a view. The range is so long that only a Tiger Woods could drive the ball the whole distance. 3 IMG 5977 Close up of the driving range. 4 IMG 0602 Green belt between Palos Verdes Dr. and the golf course. 5 IMG 5980 Managing stress. 6 IMG 0600 Many beautiful homes on inland side of Palos Verdes Dr. enjoy magnificent views. 7 IMG 5993 Older home on very top, perhaps 50 years old, has bragging rights for best view. 8 IMG 5991 New home on PV Dr. will have view of the entire length of the course, looking NW. 9 IMG 5989 Telephoto lens finds young ladies preparing refreshments, probably for a tournament event about to start. 10 IMG 5987 The Clubhouse. 11 IMG 5983 Closeup of flag flying on clubhouse grounds. 12 IMG 5985 A lonely tee box, no doubt the black tees for single handicappers and professionals. I couldn't even get a passport to visit the area. 13 IMG 5982 Hard to imagine ever getting tired of the views from these hillside homes. 14 IMG 5978 Further NW on the coast, in sight of the clubhouse, is a resort hotel under construction. Rates to be announced, if you have to ask, you can't afford it. 15 IMG 0620 Another view of the course with the lonely tee box far center. 16 IMG 0618 Views, views, and more views. I'll take the circular deck on the right. 17 IMG 0614 Palos Verdes must have a very substantial tax base. 18 IMG 0612 Here is a good perspective of the 50 year old home with view from very top. 19 IMG 0609 Waterfall hole at SE end of course. 20 IMG 0608 A little wider view of course and clubhouse area. 21 IMG 0625 Coming home through Long Beach, I noticed that the 1928 Villa Rivera is now visible. The building had been draped for a couple of years for renovation.
