Presidential contender Donald Trump has arrived at his Turnberry golf resort in western Scotland for the first day of the Women's British Open.

On a short break from his election campaigning in the United States, the Republican landed Thursday in his private helicopter in front of the hotel at the luxurious resort he purchased last year to extend his portfolio of golf properties.

The billionaire celebrity businessman is set to be at the tournament for two days before returning to the campaign trail.

The Women's British Open is the first high-profile event to be staged at one of Trump's properties since his disparaging comments about Mexicans during his presidential campaign announcement last month. Trump said that some Mexican immigrants bring drugs and crime to the U.S., and some are rapists.
