The season premiere of The Apprentice begins on September 9th. As that date nears I was not sure how many people out there are familiar with the woman in the board room with the Donald. Her name is Carolyn Kepcher. Carolyn Kepcher has probably got one of the best gigs going. Carolyn is the Chief Operating Officer and General Manager of two Trump golf clubs.
The courses Carolyn Kepcher oversees are the Trump National Golf Club in Briarcliff Manor, New York and the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. For a woman to make it to such a powerful position within the Trump organization must be quite a feat. I don't exactly see Donald Trump as an equal opportunity employer. I did not see much of the first season of the Apprentice, but I'll check out season two.
Donald Trump also has a beautiful golf club, Trump International Golf Club, down here in West Palm Beach. I went to an LPGA event out there a couple of years ago and it really is quite a nice golf club. And for the first time Trump International will be hosting the men's Golf Skills Challenge in November. This Tom Fazio designed course is very similar to two other local Fazio family designed courses that I have played quite a bit, The Jupiter Hills Club and Emerald Dunes.
One thing you'll never hear anyone at Trump mention about Trump International is that it is right next to a prison. The prisoners get a great view of this ultra-exclusive snob factory of a golf course. This isn't some white collar prison either, this is a prison for the bad asses. It seems ironic that such a prestigious golf club is a 7 iron away from a prison.
A view of Trump International. Just a hop, skip & a jump away from Mar-A-Lago. Will someone please tell Donald his golf course looks great but his hair looks horrible.
