  1. Trump bought one course in Ranchos Palos Verdes, Calif., for $27 million in 2002; said in 2006 that he would pour more than $260 million into its remodeling; and then, in 2008, requested that Los Angeles assessors tax it as if it were worth $10 million. Trump has since won three appeals to lower the club's taxes, and it is now appraised at about $14 million - far below the value in Trump's recent election filings of more than $50 million.

  2. "I've been very loyal to golf," Trump said Tuesday in a telephone interview. "I own 17 clubs. They all do great. We will see whether or not golf is loyal to me." That is the question after the P.G.A. of America on Tuesday became the first major golf organization to pull an event from one of Trump's properties in response to Trump's racially insensitive remarks last month about Mexican immigrants during a speech in which he announced his candidacy for the Republican nomination for president. The P.G.A. Grand Slam of Golf -- a year-end exhibition among the winners of the four men's major championships -- was scheduled for October at Trump National Golf Club in Los Angeles. Instead, it will be moved to a yet-to-be-determined location. Trump said it was a mutually agreed upon move to protect his friends in the organization from dealing with potential backlash over his remarks, in which he said, referring to Mexican immigrants: "They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists." He later added, "And some, I assume, are good people." (New York Times, July 8, 2015)
