Donald Trump has made two more acquisitions, this time adding a southern New Jersey golf course and one in New York's Hudson Valley to his portfolio.

Dan Scavino, executive vice president the Trump Organization's Trump Golf division, said Thursday that the Pine Hill Golf Club in Pine Hill, N.J., will be renamed Trump National Golf Club-Philadelphia.

Scavino would not say how much the firm paid for the Tom Fazio-designed course, which offers views of the Philadelphia skyline. The storied Pine Valley Golf Club is nearby.

Scavino said the company plans to convert the semi-private course into a luxury private club.

Trump also has bought the Branton Woods Golf Club in Hopewell Junction, N.Y. It will be renamed Trump National Golf Club-Hudson Valley.
