The storm is currently hitting the Bahamas.

Donald Trump's prized Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach has closed its door in anticipation of Hurricane Matthew.

It is unclear when the property will reopen. 

Matthew has strengthened into a Category 4 hurricane with sustained winds of 140 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center.

The storm, currently hitting the Bahamas, is expected to hit the Florida coast Thursday night.

Opened in 1919, the GOP presidential nominee bought Mar-a-Lago in 1984, turning the estate originally built by Marjorie Merriweather Post into a 58-bedroom home and private social club.

Trump celebrated at Mar-a-Lago as he got victories under his belt during the presidential primary season.
