Golfers spend their lives chasing the perfect shot. Donald Trump chased the perfect course. The American tycoon scoured the planet for a site. When he settled on a secluded but dramatic corner of Scotland - his ancestral home and the place the game originated - it seemed like a "tap in." No one could have foreseen the extraordinary saga that would unfold - one that started with an argument about sand and led to an attempt to bring down a government; that raised profound questions about our relationship with the planet and the power of celebrity; and that forced a reticent people to fight for their own dreams. This is the story of the world's most charismatic billionaire and his quest to create a golf paradise.
