One of the nation's most prestigious golf clubs has decided it doesn't want the president's portrait on display.

Winged Foot Golf Club in Mamaroneck is refusing to hang a portrait of President Donald Trump, who is a member of the club, according to Page Six. Republican members of the club have been pushing to honor the president, according to Page Six.

Speculation is the club doesn't want to drive a wedge between members or offend charities, according to Page Six. Winged Foot is hosting the US Open in 2020.

Trump's name has also been removed from his locker, according to Page Six.

Trump, who owns the Seven Springs Estate in Bedford, also owns Trump National Golf Club Hudson Valley in Stormville and Trump National Westchester in Briarcliff Manor. The Trump name also adorns Trump Tower At City Center in White Plains, Trump Plaza in New Rochelle, Trump Park Residences in Yorktown and the Donald J. Trump State Park on the Westchester/Putnam border.
