4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.

Where2Golf says: 

Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point is a stunning recent addition to New York City's limited collection of well-rated public golf courses. High-end daily-fee golf around the United State's most populous city was previously restricted to out-of-town offerings, such as Harbor Links or the much revered Bethpage Park on Long Island. Despite the city's insatiable need for real estate, a former riverside landfill site in the Bronx has now become home to the best municipal golf course in the Big Apple. Bethpage now has a serious challenger on the city's "must play" list.

Operated by Trump Golf, this prestigious Jack Nicklaus Signature design exudes all the character and openness of a British or Irish links golf course. Sitting alongside the approach to the Bronx-Whitestone suspension bridge, the layout offers dramatic and spectacular views. The Manhattan skyline, the East River and the bridge itself are constantly in view, so too the Throgs Neck bridge further down the river to the east.

In this undulating treeless environment, you'll experience all the thrills of classic links golf (with city skyline panoramas rather than sea or ocean views beyond the course). 7,400 yards worth of pristine tees, fairways and greens are framed by rolling fescued mounds. Plenty of "bearded" bunkers of every imaginable shape and size line the way. Around the large roller-coaster greens your chip-and-run skills will be put to the test.

Trump Golf Links is the only tournament-quality course in New York City's five boroughs, which gives local and visiting golfers a unique alternative to the other daily-fee offerings in the area, all predominantly tree-lined parkland layouts. After a long and embattled history, this ambitious new layout is now a reality, and well worth a visit.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game.
