Lake Norman’s The Point: The Trump Factor

Lake Norman's Trump National Golf Club Sign

Since Donald Trump purchased The Point Golf Club  situated in the renowned luxury community The Point on Lake Norman last spring, there has been avid speculation about how he will impact the entire community’s ambiance and the values of the more than 800 luxury and waterfront homes.  Today, as you drive through The Point and you will see workers just about everywhere; from the golf course itself where all 18 holes are being lengthened and upgraded to landscaping crews to painters to workers remodeling “The Tavern” and dining room.  It turns out Mr. Trump doesn’t like grey so the quaint gray shingled Nantucket-style builds at “The Village” including the building pictured above at the traffic circle, are now a very bright white!
