Plans for second Donald Trump golf course in Aberdeenshire lodged

A planning application for a second golf course at Donald Trump's resort in Aberdeenshire has been lodged.

The Trump Organisation has submitted detailed plans to Aberdeenshire Council for an 18-hole course to the south of the existing course at Menie.

It would be named The Mary MacLeod Course, after the American tycoon's Scottish-born mother.

Mr Trump said: "The unprecedented demand to play our championship course has accelerated our plans."
