Design work for a second golf course close to the Trump International Links in Aberdeenshire is now under way.
Martin Hawtree - who designed American tycoon Donald Trump's current course at Menie - has been re-hired to plan the next development.
The 18-hole course would be situated to the south of the site.
However, Mr Trump has stressed future work at his golf resort, including the new course, a hotel and golf lodges, are threatened by wind farm plans.
The £230m project off Aberdeen is a joint venture by Vattenfall, Technip and Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (Areg).
Mr Trump claims the turbines would spoil the sea views for golfers on his course.
Several organisations, such as Scottish Natural Heritage and RSPB Scotland, have dropped opposition to the wind farm.
