I was invited to play Trump (championship course) as a guest. Most of the courses in the Mid-Atlantic are tree lined so I was expecting this to be more parkland than anything else. From the first green, you can see this is anything but tree lined and is practically links golf. I loved it. The amenities are world class as you would imagine at a Trump property - gorgeous clubhouse and the staff offers more than you could ever need at a club, truly first class. The course was just immaculate and in pristine condition. The fairways are like carpet and the greens are fast and true. The rough provides a challenge if you're in it and if you end up in the high rough (the true protection of the course) you are likely losing your ball. With the exception of 1-2 doglegs, the course is right in front of you and very fair. Good shots are rewarded, bad shots punished. This seems like one of those courses you wouldn't get tired of playing over and over again (especially considering the condition of it) and while the members pay a premium to belong, it really has to be a members delight to belong at Trump.
