Sarah Malone, executive vice president for Trump International Golf Links Scotland, said the first stage of the detailed application process began with submission of an "indicative plan" to the Aberdeenshire Council.
"Our plans for the second golf course are moving forward rapidly and we're delighted to reveal the indicative layout. Aberdeenshire is now considered a must-visit destination for golf. The addition of a second course will further strengthen this," she said.
The new course was designed by acclaimed golf architect Dr. Martin Hawtree, designer of the first course, the newspaper The Scotsman said Monday.
