Scotland Future Disneyland of Golf or Already That?

The game was invented here, if you didn't already know that, although most people do! Especially if you are a golfer, which I am. Old Tom Morris especially might be turning in his grave, as there always used to be a certain amount of exclusivity, prestige, spirit, culture, heritage and history associated with the country that invented the challenging and World renowned game. With a sportsmanship enviable conduct due to it's values and principles via it's attire, dress code, courteous well mannered behaviour both on and off the golf course.

Not every region had a resort and country club in their back yard. However recently Trumpton on Sea a mirror image of St Andrews the legacy that encapsulates but more so is pivotal in Scotland's legend of the game maybe under threat by Donald Duck who is the persona extraordinaire of bling, crassness and vulgarity. Personally not only via his unsustainable development Modus operandi "method of operating" and code of practice but his modus vivendi, 'method of living' Portraying anything but the gentlemanly conduct or etiquette historically associated with the legendary game. Could one really imagine the Duck, certainly not the Duke being a member of the R&A "Royal & Ancient? Quite, not the stereotypical type I would associate with such a prestigious members club. The ultimate in club membership!

So in brief (1) Trumpton on Sea by Donald Duck (2) Blairs College certainly more in favour of that scenario, brown field, opportunity to restore some of Scotland's history and heritage, thus reducing yet another off the buildings at risk list, in it's thousands. Home grown, organic and indigenous ideas truly sowing the seed, reaping the harvest and ringing Scotland's till. (3) Ury House Stonehaven goes bust, even with the likes of iconic and legendary Jack Nicklaus's involvement. However consider this, if you were a financier and dare I say banker, would you wish to invest in something that already has two up and coming competitors on your doorstep, mm? quite certainly not confidence building, as you'll all be competing for the same business pretty much in each others back yard.

Documentary "The Spirit of Business & The Values of Principles"

Aim to be Michael Moore of Scotland, not mythological, true to myself, and my beliefs for a very successful and progressive Scotland via unique innovation, ideas, concepts and visions, that will continue sustainable lasting and meaningful legacies for Scotland! Through macro and micro initiative and "Method of Operating" being ignored or traceable, organic locally sourced incentives being wasted. We will be exploring Banking, Finance irregularities, and catastrophic failures, plus continual self centred preservation monopolies. Through to humongous calamities by bureaucrats, politicians via continual errors in judgment, detrimental to our wealth and well-being. Plus business and planning processes and the inconsistencies via a multitude of planning and business applications that have no consistent logic or coherent pattern? Scholars and Academics, Historians, Physicists, Psychiatrists through to various Professionals from different specialist areas and fields and Business People, plus ordinary folk will be involved in the process and partake via interviews. Wishing to contribute towards making a meaningful difference, evoking, plus proving significant change for the better of us all.

Thinking out of the box

Therefore I have formed a Co-operative/Consortium like motive operandi applying inherent value and intrinsic value towards it current pledgeholders, future shareholders and anticipated investors. Beyond the mere principle value of itself and Co-operative/Consortium Partners, who share the same values and principles towards executing, performing and delivering overwhelming and unconditional current pledgeholders value, future shareholders and anticipated investors value and returns, beyond mere monetary values and principles but more importantly Ecological and Environmental dividends and returns. Towards making a substantial and prolific difference, through evoking, plus provoking necessary change in attitude, behaviour, culture towards the ecology, environment and the built environment.

Extremely admirable the protest and statement Doctor David Kennedy made. I would concur that Donald Trump is by no means an exemplar or shinning idealogy for students to admire or follow.
