Trump National Golf Club (Philadelphia) is a private golf club located in Pine Hill, New Jersey featuring a 6,969 yard course designed by Tom Fazio. Formerly named Pine Hill Golf Club, it was purchased and renamed by Donald J. Trump on Christmas Eve, 2009.[1] The club sits about a mile and half from Pine Valley Golf Club and Freeway Golf Course. Pine Valley Golf Club is generally considered as the No. 1 rated golf course in the world.

The clubhouse of Trump National Golf Club is set atop a prominent hill 209-foot (64 m) in the middle of Camden County. The 43,000-square-foot (4,000 m2) clubhouse provides panoramic views of the surrounding landscape and Philadelphia city skyline. This hill is 30 feet lower than Arneys Mount in Burlington County, and 10 feet lower than the highest point in Camden County, which is near Berlin. The golf course was built upon the site of the former Ski Mountain at Pine Hill in 1998.
