It’s tee time in the Bronx!
On Tuesday, May 26 at 11 a.m., Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point Park will host a grand opening celebration in honor of the country’s most anticipated new golf course after over 15 years of planning and developing, officially opening the course to the public.
The 18-hole, championship caliber, state-of-the-art golf course officially opened on Wednesday, April 1, after it was announced that the course would begin accepting tee time reservations online in early March.
The same month, Trump announced the hiring of acclaimed PGA Club professional Brad Worthington as the course’s director of golf.
Additionally, just before the New Year, Trump announced that highly acclaimed golf instructor Michael Breed and his namesake golf academy would open at Trump Golf Links.
Another major contributor to the course’s development – golf icon Jack Nicklaus, winner of 18 major championship and winner of the 2014 Architect of the Year by Golf Magazine, was assigned to design the course because of his perception as a globally renewed designer and golf success throughout his professional career.
A golf course for Ferry Point Park has been in development for over 15 years. The project languished until the original developer stepped down in 2011.
The land currently comprising the new golf course was formerly a landfill.
After Trump and Nicklaus formed a partnership and took on the task of designing a golf course, the project seemed to turn around significantly.
Less than half a decade later, golf lovers and enthusiasts have an opportunity to experience playing on a unique golf course that overlooks the Manhattan skyline and two majestic bridges.
