Donald Trump’s Golfing Controversies: Hole-In-One Record, Handicap and Etiquette

...By Roland Peterson for TDPel Media.

Donald Trump, the former President of the United States, is a well-known lover of golf, and is known to have taken some liberties with the rules on the golf course.


He owns 21 golf courses across the globe, including the former Open venue Turnberry in Scotland. Trump is reported to have an impressive handicap of 2.8, a claim that many have questioned.

He also claims to have scored seven hole-in-ones in his lifetime, an outlandish claim that has led to doubts about its legitimacy.

However, Trump’s record pales in comparison to that of late North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il, who claimed to have made 11 aces in just one round at Pyongyang Golf Course.

Recently, Trump’s golfing etiquette was once again called into question when he won the Senior Club Championship at his West Palm Beach Club.

Trump announced his victory on social media, claiming that the competition was like a physical exam that required strength and stamina.

However, his victory was overshadowed by the fact that he failed to compete in the opening round of the event, leading to questions about the legitimacy of his win.


Despite the controversies, Trump’s love for golf remains, and he continues to promote the sport. However, his actions on the golf course have led to criticism and skepticism, making some wonder if he is truly deserving of his golfing reputation.
