Donald Trumps golf courses have lost over $300 million since 2000 — Heres an inside look at each one of them


President Trump’s love for golf and extensive collection of courses continues to receive widespread media attention. Since his inauguration, he’s gone golfing at least 140 times across 280 golf course visits, according to an online tracker. (At last night’s presidential debate, Trump told Democratic Nominee Joe Biden, without evidence, “you probably golf more than I do;” unlike Trump, Biden doesn’t own any golf courses.)

In 2012, Trump spent $150 million to buy the National Doral Miami but over the next six years, the Times revealed that it ended up losing $162.3 million. Aso, as noted by Slate, Trump still has a $125 million mortgage on the property that’s due in the next three years. In addition, he’s lost $63.6 million on his golf courses in the British Isles. 

Business Insider compiled a list of President Trump’s 15 operating golf courses, along with their amenities, from The Trump Organization. Keep reading for a look inside each.
