Donald Trump wants a piece of Key Biscayne’s public golf course, according to a published report.

Trump’s organization submitted an unsolicited proposal to Miami-Dade County last fall to take over management of Crandon Park’s golf course and invest $10 million in improvements, the Miami Herald reported.

Details of the document, which has not been made public, were outlined by a Trump aide.

“Golf is not an essential service,” Ed Russo, a Trump consultant, told the Miami Herald. “We don’t have all the budgetary restraints the county has…. We’re prepared to put in $10 million, with a $5 million reserve, to restore that golf course to its original grandeur.”

As of Wednesday afternoon, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez recused himself from talks with Trump over the proposed Crandon Park golf course takeover, according to a tweet from a Miami Herald reporter. Gimenez’s son represents Trump in Doral.
