The Donald Wants Golf Course Burial
Submitted by William
Donald Trump wants to build a three-acre cemetery on a golf course that would take care of his family and himself.
The Bedminster Township Committee will consider Trump’s application to construct two lots of cemeteries at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J. One lot will be .28 acres and have 82 cemetery plots, while the other will be 2.65 acres and have 942 plots. The cemeteries are intended for the Trump family as well as lifetime members of the country club. According to NJ.com, membership fees for the club can be as much as $300,000.
And if you think that is over-the-top, this is actually a scaled-down version of what Trump originally wanted. In 2007 he applied for a family mausoleum to be built alongside the course’s first hole. According to NJ.com, the plans called for a 19-foot tall stone structure with four obelisks surrounding its exteriors and a small altar with six vaults inside. Local officials nixed that plan, calling it “gaudy and out of step with the town’s rural character.”
