No April Fool’s here. The first day of play at Donald Trump’s highly anticipated Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point is scheduled to be April 1, weather permitting.
Trump announced Wednesday the course will begin accepting tee times at 10 a.m. on March 11.
“I’m thrilled to bring what will be one of the country’s great courses to New York City, something residents have been looking forward for decades,” Trump said in a release. “Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point is truly a world-class, wonderful and exciting course and can be played by golfers of all skill levels. We expect to have many major championships at Trump Golf Links – just minutes from Manhattan. This will be a tremendous economic development engine for the City of New York. Once the Trump Organization took over the development, I am glad we were able to get it open so quickly.”
The course is designed by Jack Nicklaus, who was named Golf Magazine’s 2014 Architect of the Year.
“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. “Donald Trump has a deep-rooted love for New York City and he deserves a great deal of credit for getting Ferry Point to the finish line and for delivering it to the golfers and golf fans of New York.”
