BEDMINSTER, N.J. - Donald Trump is considering spending eternity next to his golf club in northern New Jersey.

A consultant for the dealmaker, Ed Russo, tells The Star-Ledger that Trump is considering seeking state approval to put a 1.5-acre burial ground next to Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster.

Russo says it would be available for club members - who pay up to $300,000 in membership fees - to rest in peace, but that a section could be saved for Trump and his kin.

"It's a very personal decision, but he's considering it," Russo said to the Star-Ledger. "This is really about members, but we do plan to set something aside for Mr. Trump and his family."

The plan would also make the club available for late golfers to have their ashes spread there, and they can choose to have a permanent memorial at the site.

Trump has previously considered making the course his fairway to heaven. But he decided in 2007 not to build a big family mausoleum in the Somerset County community in 2007.

N.J. governor Chris Christie has already made it known he will be honored of the real estate mogul and television personality chooses his state as a final resting place.

"Donald Trump can be buried anywhere," said Michael Drewniak, a spokesman for the governor, told Star-Ledger. "So I guess we should be honored that he's considering New Jersey."
