Trump annoyed with park weddings next to golf club

Donald Trump is at odds with officials in Rancho Palos Verdes over weddings at an oceanfront park next to his Trump National Golf Club.

Couples can pay less than $1,000 to get married at Founders Park, a 5.5-acre park with spectacular ocean views that sits behind Trump's clubhouse.

The park has no bathrooms, limited parking and just a few benches. Trump says bridal parties that book weddings in the park assume they can use the facilities at his golf club where weddings can cost as much as $150,000.

Trump manages park rentals for the city and either wants out or an increase in wedding prices. Trump's general manager David Conforti wrote a letter to the city saying the golf course is losing money on the deal.

Mayor David Wolowicz says the city is trying to work out a solution with the golf club.
