Bedminster, NJ August 11, 2023 -- Former President Donald Trump at the first tee before the opening round of the 2023 LIV Golf Tournament at Trump National in Bedminster, NJ on August 11, 2023. Syndication: The Record

While Donald Trump’s New Jersey golf course at Bedminster is hosting a LIV Golf tournament this weekend, don’t expect the same to happen in the near future with the PGA and DP Tours.

Both leagues made it perfectly clear they have no interest in doing business with Trump or any of his golf courses.

Although some PGA golfers wouldn’t have a problem playing at one of Trump’s courses, even he knows that’s almost out of the question.

“They love the courses,” he said, “but I think they probably consider me a little bit controversial right now.”

You think? Trump is facing several indictments and expecting to be hit any day now with another new indictment from Georgia on voter tampering.

The PGA cut ties with Trump in 2016 when he first ran for president and the DP World Tour expressed that in no way, shape, or form do they plan to do business with the former president either.

And if Trump was expecting to host a major like the British Open at his new course in Scotland, that idea was shot down quickly.

“Until we’re confident that any coverage at Turnberry would be about golf, about the golf course, and about the championship until we’re confident about that, we will not return any of our championships there,” Martin Slumbers, the chief executive of the R&A The Club of St. Andrews said although he did say he’d be open to doing business with the Saudi’s and LIV Golf in the future.

Any chance that Trump’s golf courses may have to host another golf tournament with either tour, won’t happen until he is 90 years old, unless something drastic changes.
