It was a view issue, and there were two sides, or views, to the story. Trump National Golf Course, located in Rancho Palos Verdes, commands a sweeping view of the Pacific Ocean, and the project has done a tremendous job of beautifying the south side of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Its presence has certainly not hurt real estate values either. Every homeowner on the south side of Palos Verdes should be thankful Donald Trump stepped in and pumped millions of dollars into a floundering project after a massive sinkhole stopped the project cold several years ago.
As I understand it, ficus trees were planted along the west edge of the project to delineate the border of the golf course from the neighboring community. The trees grew fast, as ficus do, and it looked great from Donald's side of the fence. The vantage point was a bit different for the homeowners behind the trees. Instead of Catalina Island, cruise ships and the blue waters of the Pacific they were now looking at leaves.
Donald, if there is one thing the residents of Palos Verdes will fight for it is their view. I understand the trees are going, but as a local real estate agent, I'm glad you're staying. The golf course looks wonderful, the clubhouse is one of my favorite places to dine in Palos Verdes and the walking trails throughout the golf course and along the bluffs are nothing short of spectacular. Besides, your over-sized flag is still standing.
