  • It encompasses 535 acres
  • Won  the Metropolitan Golf Association’s first-ever environment award in 2007, but was later cited for a number of violations in 2011.
  • 69 million gallons of water are needed to maintain the course each year
  • New Jersey’s Department of Environmental Protection cited Trump National Golf in Bedminster for a string of violations, including cutting trees and brush and disturbing wetlands
