President Donald Trump may be overseas, but in the U.S. he is very much back in the thick of golf media.
Donald Trump owns 19 golf courses, two of which will be hosting tournaments in 2017. The Senior PGA Championship is currently being hosted at Trump National Washington D.C. and The U.S. Women’s Open will be Trump National Bedminster in July.
There has been some controversy surrounding the Women’s Open being hosted by a Trump course because of his remarks towards women during his campaign trail. Even with a petition going around asking for a switch in venues, the LPGA did not change courses. Recently LPGA players and Mike Davis of the USGA told the public that they will not answer political questions during their time at the Trump owned course.
“This is not supposed to be a political spectacle. It’s a golf tournament.”
While they may want to stay out of politics, it will be hard to keep the politics at bay. Of course there has been no word on the topic at the Senior PGA Championship, where a bunch of old white men gather around comparing sticks.
Anyways, since Donald Trump and the professional golf community love his courses so much, why not dive in and take a closer look? These are his current golf courses, although he has a few projects in the works. From a links course in the Bronx to capitalizing on the home of professional golfers.
Trump courses ranked from pompous to playable:
Big Sam is a twat, but he would be the cheapest option as he has a lot to prove following his comical exit from the England post.

Fucking hell, even this man is more qualified than Arena. Moyes might not have much time left at Sunderland because he's only won two damn games in the Prem this season.
Roberto Di Matteo
He's won the Champions League with Chelsea and been axed by Aston Villa. Don't know what you're going to get with Di Matteo, but it would be worth a gamble.
Blanc was a class player and has managed for PSG and France. He could bring a wealth of experience to the US, but he's French so there's no fucking chance.
He has molded FC Dallas into an MLS powerhouse without much financial backing and has an eye for young talent. He could make the USMNT great again.
He wouldn't want this man on the sidelines for the US? He's proven he can do it in the Premier League despite West Ham's really shitty season this year.
Andre Villas Boas
The man who was supposed to be the 'next Jose Mourinho' is a sell out like the rest and now coaching in China. The USMNT would offer him an opportunity to do something with his managerial career.
Frank de Boer
Now looking for work following the short stint at Inter Milan, de Boer has a great track record at Ajax. Honestly, no one can fix what the fuck is happening at Inter.
He's beautiful and surprisingly effective. The Arsenal man has a knack for being streaky in his goal scoring exploits even off the bench.
A quiet contributor for most of his career, Kalou was clutch coming off the bench. Now at Herta Berlin his substitute appearance days are behind him, but the man was a baller for the Blues.
With his time at Liverpool coming to an end, Sturridge can still score goals. He's on a tear for England and scores when he wants off the bench for Klopp's side.
