Trump to appear on HBO's Real Sports to talk new Scottish golf course
Series: Golf Buzz

Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel, airing Tuesday, August 20 from 9-10 p.m. ET/PT on HBO, will feature a segment on Donald Trump and his controversial golf course project in Scotland.
In 2008, the New York tycoon set out to build one of the greatest luxury golf resorts in the world near the city of Aberdeen on the northeast coast of Scotland. The project was to include hundreds of homes and condos, plus a hotel and conference center.
From the start, locals opposed the project, insisting that it would spoil their pristine coastline.
Despite the opposition, Trump broke ground in 2010 and opened what has become known as Trump International Golf Links in July 2012.
In the latest edition of Real Sports, correspondent Bernard Goldberg travels back to Scotland with Trump to see how people are reacting to the latest development -- a new fight between Trump and the Scottish government, which plans to erect 600-foot wind turbines off the coast of his golf course in pursuit of clean energy, threatening the view of the North Sea from Trump International Golf Links.
