The new layout will go at the southern end of the property.
Dr Hawtree said the second course would be more “relaxed” than its “high-flying neighbour” and explore the “beauties of the land behind the dunes”. He added: “The sea of heather-clad undulations, the isolated small lochs, the network of burns and the higher ground behind this land provides fine views of the whole links.
“Not to be outdone, the second course will rise up into the dunes at the southern end and nod in acquaintance to the 4th and 5th holes of the first course.”
The new links will take shape on the vast site overlooking the North Sea. Meanwhile, Trump and his team have revealed that 10,000 people played the course during the first four months.
My math puts that at about 90 players a day from the July 10 opening to the course's closing at the end of October. Not bad for a £150 and up green fee.
This week, the soundtrack to the video, which was produced to highlight the bitter dispute between Trump and the residents of Aberdeenshire's Menie estate, was released as a single and there were even claims it could be a contender in the battle to become the Christmas number one.
