DOES DONALD TRUMP CARE ABOUT THE MIDDLE INCOME AMERICAN GOLFER

By now most of you may be tired of all the debates and ads for those seeking to be President.  One thing all of these wannabes have in common is that they are for the betterment of our country.s middle income families.  Let me say first off that I am in no way endorsing anyone, whether it be Republican or Democrat.  Actually, I have no trust or interest in any politician.    I do however have an interest in the middle income golfer, who's weekly greens fees may average between $35.00  and $60.00.  In some places this average may vary, but for now we have some idea of our middle income golfer's expense.  To our knowledge, no Presidential candidate has any direct relationship to our middle income golfer, with the exception of, Donald Trump.  Trump has developed, built, and renovated many golf courses in the United States and abroad, and it would be safe to say that none of these courses will benefit our middle income golfer. A couple of examples are as follows:

DORAL GOLF CLUB      MIAMI
Trump purchased this facility a few years ago and invested in renovating the famed Blue Monster course.  There are 3 other courses on the property, but when going to Doral, most golfers would have an interest in playing the tournament course.  Maybe some of that interest will be lost when they see what Trump wants to charge.
GREENS FEES          $450.00   CART INCLUDED
FORECADDIE           $25.00    MANDATORY
FORECADDIE TIP    $20.00
TOTAL                        $495.00     FLORIDA TAX NOT INCLUDED

Before Trump took over, the greens fees and surcharge for this course would cost around $250.00

TRUMP NATIONAL LOS ANGELES
Scenic and tough test along the Pacific Ocean.
GREENS FEES       $280.00       CART INCLUDED     TAX ADDITIONAL
Played this course. but paid far less than advertised price due to some online exploring.  With a little work, you may find a way to play here cheaper.

By comparing our middle income golfer's weekly expense to what Trump wants for his greens fees and course expenses, it would appear that he has little regard for the middle income when it comes to golf.   Maybe Trump's slogan or campaign speech would be something like:  VOTE FOR ME, BUT JUST DON'T TRY TO PLAY MY GOLF COURSES.

I'm sure they are nice courses but my golf isn't good enough to pay those prices
