Neil Hobday quits Trump
post at Balmedie

A key member of the team developing Donald Trump's planned £1billion project at Balmedie has left the US businessman's firm.
Neil Hobday, pictured by Cal Carson Golf Agency, who was project director with Trump International Golf Lnks Scotland, has left his post with the company.
Sarah Malone, executive vice-president of the company, said Mr Hobday's departure from his consultancy position had been amicable.
She said it was Mr Hobday's decision, and after being with the company for many years he would be working on other business interests.
She said Mr Hobday, who has been in golf consultancy for more than 20 years, played an important role in the Menie Estate project but that had come to a natural conclusion.
The detailed plans to build two championship golf coures, a hotel, clubhouse, 950 holiday homes and 5000 houses at the site near Balmedie 12 miles up the North-east coastline from Aberdeen, were submitted to Aberdeenshire Council earlier this year, and are expected to be ruled upon by the authority next month.
Colin Farquharson writes: Prior to joining the Trump team from Day 1 of the Menie Estate project, Neil, a brother of pro golfer Simon Hobday, was involved in an unsuccessful bid by American investors to develop the Spey Bay links as a golf resort.
