Report: Donald Trump’s golf course company in talks to host super league tournaments

Among the many questions swirling around the Saudi-backed super league is where the rival tour would play its events. Part of that question may have been answered by The Washington Post on Saturday.

The Post reported that LIV Golf, the fund behind the Greg Norman-led super league, was in talks with representatives of former President Donald Trump’s golf course company to host super league tournaments.

The report cites two of Trump’s courses in Doral, Florida and Bedminster, NJ as possible landing spots for the super league and the Trump Organization also has courses in Jupiter, Florida, Washington, D.C. and in Westchester, NY, which could host events.

Requests for comment from LIV Golf and the Trump Organization by mail were either declined or not returned.

Doral was a longtime host of a PGA Tour event until Trump began his presidential campaign in 2016 and the Tour moved the golf world championship to Mexico City. Last year, the PGA of America removed the 2022 PGA Championship from Trump’s Bedminster course after the January 6 uprising when pro-Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol.

No player has officially signed to play in the super league and LIV Golf has not released any details or even an official name, but the possibility of a rival tour has grown in recent weeks amid rumors of defections high profile, including Phil Mickelson. and Bryson DeChambeau, persist.

According to various sources, the super league would consist of 14 events with at least 10 of these tournaments being played in the United States.
