Donald Trump is not a fan of the Coore/Crenshaw redesign of Pinehurst No. 2 that has taken the Donald Ross course back to its original design.

Trump tweeted several thoughts about the new layout including how horrible it looked on television and how Trump Bedminster and the Blue Monster were superior tracks. The addition of native areas throughout the course has taken the venue away from thick rough and green as far as the eye could see to sandy wiregrass plants and brown. The changes were widely regarded as positive, but Trump isn't afraid to be a contrarian with his opinions.
