I concede that playing golf in England is considered to be a bit of a status symbol and is popular in business circles. In Scotland, it is as much a game for the masses and has little social significance. I don't know about the US or other parts of the world.
I've heard a few criticisms of various golf courses in my time, but having 'a terrible impact on the environment' is certainly one of the more remarkable and puzzling. My first-ever boyhood sighting of a water-vole was on a municipal course in the suburbs of a then very dirty city of Glasgow.
Not sure what all the facts are concerning the 'evil Trump' and his Golf project in Aberdeenshire, but I suspect plenty of those magnificent dunes will long outlive Donald J Trump and his dastardly plans for the area.
Furthermore, I feel certain that, through their local councils, the legendary canny folk of the area, will almost certainly have demanded a hefty monetary sum and positive outcome for themselves and their undeniably beautiful coastal region in return, and taking a purely objective view, I'd be rather more 'concerned' for DJT and the self-predicted financial success of his pet project. ,
