To be fair to Trump people were pretty sceptical when he took over Doonbeg, it was a world class course and people locally were worried how it would turn out. As most golfers who visit the place will tell you, they left the course pretty much as it was and made some changes but only to the hotel/food & beverage side of things. The course is still a great play. The main ''go-to'' guy in Ireland and Scotland for golf tours is still that Dave Henry guy from henrygolf and he maintains Trump Doonbeg is still a premium course.Having said all of that I shot one of my worst ever rounds there....!!!
