(CNN)The R&A on Monday announced that it has no plans to stage any future championships at the Trump Turnberry golf course and resort in Scotland.

"We had no plans to stage any of our championships at Turnberry and will not do so in the foreseeable future," R&A Chief Executive Martin Slumbers said in a statement.

Turnberry is one of two high-profile courses outgoing US President Donald Trump owns in Scotland, the other being the Trump International Golf Links situated amid the dunes of Aberdeen.

On Sunday, the PGA of America announced that the 2022 PGA Championship would not be played at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

The Trump Turnberry golf course did not immediately respond to CNN's request for comment.

The Turnberry's new "King Robert the Bruce" golf course was opened in 2017 by President Trump's son, Eric.

The US president bought the Turnberry resort in 2014 and ploughed millions of dollars into an upgrade of the hotel and the famous Ailsa course.

Turnberry has hosted four Open Championships, most recently in 2009 when Stewart Cink beat 59-year-old Tom Watson in a playoff.
