Heads up

Course is being aerated starting 8/26. They’ll charge full price despite this fact. Who aerates right before Labor Day weekend?

Positively surprised

Great practice, venue, golf, cart, staff. The views are mind-blowing. We really enjoyed playing golf here and will be back. Great change from the crappy golf courses a in NYC. Best pace of play by far from any NYC golf course. Not cheap but worth it with the special deals. Great crowd too.

Great NYC muni

For some reason my other review was deleted, but like I said in the previous post, I love this course. The range is and practice facilities are awesome. The course is in amazing shape and perfectly designed. The fairways are wide open but strategic bunkers placed in the center of the fairways and greens with mowed down sides are it’s best defense. Can’t beat this layout

Overpriced With a Side of Bad Service

It's a boring course for the money. Once you've been through the first few holes you've seen it all. There's not a single memorable hole on the entire course. I played just yesterday and not one sticks out in my head as I type this.

Service was horrible. Bag attends didn't seem to want to do their jobs. When I asked about ice for the cooler on the cart an attendant said that I needed to take it into the bar myself and ask someone to fill it. Ridiculous for a round that cost well of $200.

In fairness the course was in very nice shape with greens that were running true.

So if you want to play an over priced, forgettable, poorly staffed golf course in good shape-Trump Links Ferry Point is the place for you.

You get what you pay for

Yes, most people will think the price to play this track is outrageous. You cannot argue the course is aesthetically beautiful and conditions are kept immaculate. The beautifully designed holes reward you with good shots so the course is definitely fair.
The newly built club house is beautiful, attentive staff is courteous, and food is delicious. Yes it is expensive to play but most people don't realize it's better than most country clubs and you get what you pay for.

Good, not great.

The views and layout are spectacular, you can’t argue with that. The staff inside and at the bag drop were equally great. (I don’t like, nor understand the rule about no push carts, especially with the GolfNow rate being a walking rate.) We went outside, and the wait for a spot on the range was long! Lots of people giving friends “lessons” and family lessons.... Out on the course, I was surprised at how few bunkers were raked, divots in the fairway refilled or fixed on the greens. We had 2 twosomes behind us ... which were either let out as 2 twosomes, or a foursome purposely split up. Overall a really nice track, not a great value.

Private course conditions & amenities

Challenging bunkers & fast greens. Great pace of play, worth the spoils if you’re tired of the over crowding at the cheaper courses. People there tend to have better etiquette as well, greens were pristine. You get what you pay for!

Oasis in the Bronx

Beautiful course -challenging links play - keep it in the fairway and out of the fescue! Wind makes it play longer. Walked and was a pleasure. Clubhouse and views are gorgeous!

Scenery everywhere

What a layout, not only is the course amazing, thanks Jack, but the views are as well. The Manhattan skyline and the Whitestone bridge will give you views you won’t soon forget. As for the course it is treeless and has one or two holes with water but the intimidation comes from missing the fairways and the bunkers. The greens are large but have some subtle undulations that make them tricky. I would highly recommend you play this course if you are in the New York City area.

You get what you pay for - solid course

Overall, this is a great course that offers unparalleled ease of access for Manhattan-based golfers. Yes, it's more expensive than the local munis - but you're getting a course that's consistently kept in good condition, offers an excellent layout, and provides fantastic amenities (practice area, newly built clubhouse, etc.). Plus, it's 20-40 minutes away from most Manhattan locations vs. the 60-90 minute commute to other NJ / Long Island tracks.

The course is a difficult Nicklaus design, but offers a large variety of tees - if it's your first time playing, definitely move up a set (... or two) and enjoy the course rather than trying to play a certain yardage.

I've played here about 6-8 times, most recently on 04/24/19 - the course is still coming back from early season conditions (including aeration on the greens), but should be back to it's normal, excellent shape by about mid-May. The rough is pretty "clumpy" which leads to some brutally hard lies - but once the fescue grows in and the greens bounce back it's one of the best manicured tracks in the NYC area.

Not a difficult course to walk (except for a mildly lengthy walk from 9 green to 10 tee), so definitely don't be afraid to carry your own bag! Just know that there are *not* any pull carts offered here.

Finally, given the difficulty of the course and the higher cost (ranging from $100ish to $250ish depending on if you're a NYC resident / weekday vs. weekend / ride vs. walk) - you don't tend to see a lot of beginner golfers, and the pace of play is generally an improvement to other NYC courses as a result. Typical rounds are about 4-5 hours (usually right around 4:30), vs. the 5+ hour rounds you inevitably face playing the likes of Bethpage Black / Red.

NO PUSH/PULL CARTS ALLOWED

Beautiful course. Outstanding layout. There are still signs of aeration (should be perfect in about 2 weeks) greens are extremely hard read, very challenging (really really fun).
It should be noted, when they say walking rate, they literally mean WALKING, there are no push/pull carts allowed on the course.

Overall, this course it’d amazing, doesn’t not feel like you’re just 15 mins away from midtown Manhattan. INSANE VIEWS (so have your camera ready)

Great Layout!

This Nicklaus layout was a treat to play. Challenging but very fair.
Fairways and greens were in excellent condition. Had trouble with pace of greens, not used to greens that smooth or fast.
Overall, it was well worth the price for the experience.
A definite once or twice a year round.
As of today, the best course I’ve played in the metro area.
