President Donald Trump’s son declared the family had “made great again” a Florida golf course it took over in 2012. It wasn’t quite up to par for some members, though, and on Wednesday they got their membership deposits back.

U.S. District Judge Kenneth A. Marra found the Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter breached the former members’ contract by denying them access and failing to refund their deposits within 30 days. The members who sued paid a total of $4.85 million in deposits, which the judge ordered returned, and $925,010 in interest.
