Golf tournament staying in New Rochelle

(07/15/03) BRIARCLIFF MANOR - Efforts by Donald Trump to get the LPGA's Big Apple Classic moved to his Briarcliff Manor golf course have failed.

The fate of the tournament had been up in the air for weeks, but the LPGA decided the event will remain at the Wykagyl Country Club for at least the next three years.

Meanwhile, a proposal to host an LPGA event in Briarcliff Manor in the future is expected to be submitted sometime next week. Residents say they would welcome a golf tournament if issues such as traffic and parking were resolved.

Trump says he is hopeful that the LPGA will find a place for his golf course on its schedule.
