Trump This: The Donald has a big week

     If nature abhors a vacuum, Donald Trump positively loathes it.  It has been weeks since The Donald insinuated himself onto the national scene.

        But in the last few days, Trump is back with a vengeance.  Today, he flew to Las Vegas to re-insert himself into the show known as the Republican campaign for President.  He endorsed Mitt Romney who, like Trump, likes to fire people; perhaps the coiffed one is angling for Secretary of Labor in a Romney administration.   Romney, those who care about such things may recall, was the only candidate to visit Trump at his marbled New York aerie and then leave by the servants’ entrance, ostensibly in order to avoid having to answer questions about ring kissing.  There won’t be any back doors available today.

        But fascinated though we are with politics and public displays of vanity, our humble blog is about golf communities, and we are pleased to report a

With a $3 million dollar bill due to be paid in April, The Point Golf Club members decided to reconsider Trump's offer.

golf community angle to Trump’s re-emergence on the public scene.  After members of The Point Golf Club on Lake Norman, just north of Charlotte, rejected the Trump organization’s offer to buy the golf club and spiff it up (see “Donald doesn’t get The Point”), they have changed their collective mind just two months later after considering the $3 million April bill they owe Crescent Resources, the community and club’s developer.  According to Trump’s son Eric and the Charlotte Observer, the vote to welcome Trump as club owner was “overwhelming.”

        The most loyal members of The Point could find themselves eternally rewarded.  Last week, The Donald announced that he wants to build a private cemetery next to his Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey.  According to the web site NJ.com, “The 1.5-acre site would become the exclusive final resting place for wealthy club members who pay as much as $300,000 in membership fees.”  Perhaps adjacent cemeteries will become a Trump golf club signature.

        But Point Club members can rest easy on one score:  Donald Trump has already announced that he and his family will be buried at the cemetery adjacent to the New Jersey club.  "This is really about members,” a Trump consultant said, “but we do plan to set something aside for Mr. Trump and his family."

This blog was conceived and is published by me, Larry Gavrich, a former corporate communications executive who founded HomeOnTheCourse, LLC, in 2005.  Our firm advises baby boomers and others seeking a lifestyle in which golf is a major component.  My wife Connie and I own a home in Connecticut (not on a golf course) and a condo at Pawleys Plantation in Pawleys Island, SC, on a Jack Nicklaus layout.  We began our search for our home on the course more than 15 years ago, and the challenges of the search inspired me to research golf communities and write objective reviews of them.
