LONDON (Reuters) - Turnberry, the iconic Scottish golf course which hosted one of the sport's greatest duels, has been sold to American billionaire Donald Trump.
The real estate magnate announced on Tuesday that he had bought the famous links course for an undisclosed sum from the Dubai-based Leisurecorp.
"It was an opportunity, as far as I was concerned,” Trump told golf.com.
Trump said he had no plans to change the course layout, which sits on a former World War One airfield and overlooks the Irish Sea, but he does want to develop the Turnberry hotel.
Trump owns a handful of golf courses in the United States but has never had one that has hosted a major championship but that could change with his purchase of Turnberry.
