The highly anticipated public opening of Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point has finally arrived. Now, golfers just need the weather to cooperate.
On Wednesday, Donald Trump announced that people can start scheduling tee times at 10 a.m. on March 11 for the month of April (www.trumpferrypoint.com). The new course's official opening day is scheduled for April 1, which seems ambitious with all the snow that's been dumped on the New York area of late and no winter reprieve in sight.
Speaking of ambitious, Trump said he expects the track "to have many major championships."
Jack Nicklaus, a man with 18 major titles to his name, designed the course that was built on top of a Bronx landfill and took more than 12 years to complete. Constructed beneath the Whitestone Bridge, the challenging course offers stunning views of the Manhattan skyline.
"Ferry Point was created to be a unique public golf experience, and it is our collective hope that the golf course will add to New York City's global reputation, enhance New York's reputation for quality golf, and give its proud residents a place to play and call home," Nicklaus said.
Once all the snow melts, that is.
