Trump National Golf Course already has long been an important location for Trump: his daughter, Ivanka, held her wedding to Jared Kushner in 2009. Trump also requested permission from the Bedminster Land Use Board to be buried in a private cemetery on golf course property, although there is no guarantee that would be his ultimate decision. 

The transition team has been centered at the Trump Tower in Manhattan. Vice President-elect Mike Pence chairs the transition team. The team is tasked with helping the President-elect decide who he will nominate for cabinet posts in his administration, and how to fill other key posts in the administration.
