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.

To play a golf course of this quality on a reclaimed garbage dump was a real treat. Kudos to all involved.

Fabulous Municipal Course

I played the Trump Links course at Ferry Point - it was a fabulous experience. First, I must compliment the staff - friendly, helpful, courteous - really outstanding! The course is wonderful, lots of beautiful holes and views. I found the course to be very friendly - if you don't try to belt the ball and just keep it in play, you can score. I can honestly say that even though the course is expensive, I'll definitely return. Highly recommended!

So good it is underrated

This is a follow-up to my first review of this course a while back. The more I play it the more excellent features I notice and appreciate. Some people say the course gets repetitive, but I think that is because the middle of the course does have similar visual features- fairways, dunes and bunkers. But the holes strategically vary wonderfully. Rolling ground, rumpled fairways, subtle turns and angles, preferred angles due to hazards and blind spots. Nicklaus and team really got the details right. The greens and green complexes are challenging but fair and take a few tries to get the right feel. The finishing holes are outstanding. Just great golf holes throughout without gimmicks. The new clubhouse looks top notch and beautiful, with lots of spacious room and great views. For the overall public golf experience in this country, nothing quite matches Pebble Beach (I haven't been to Bandon), and Bethpage Black has its own unique status for munis, but Ferry Point is right in the mix of the next best top level public courses in America.

Remarkable course in available in NYC

Very pretty course, good layout, and very fair. Course conditions were beautiful. Surprising the quality of the grass on the fairways and greens. One of the best ranges and practice areas I have ever been to ever. I plan to play here regularly.

Great test

This is an exceptional course located within a 20 minute Uber ride of Manhattan. When the wind is up, you best bring your a game. Course conditioning is really good. Practice area is excellent. Staff is friendly. All the above is to be expected is the greens fees are Definitely premium. This is a good course to walk if you want as it mostly flat. Wind really gets kicking. This is a New York City publicly owned golf course managed by the Trump organization.

Too Expensive But Really Nice

Pace of play is great because so many locals simply refuse to play the course. If they lowered the rates $50 and took Trump's name off of it, it would be impossible to get on.

If you can get over the name (I have a hard time), it's such a treat. A wonderful and unique layout that, from the appropriate tees, is very, very playable. Fairways are wide and well maintained. The course is pretty much right out in front of you. Some day it would make a great PGA course for that reason.

Make sure you stop by the plaque the President had installed to commemorate his hole-in-one during the inaugural round on the course. He says he struck purely a 7-iron from 165, but Stormy Daniels says it was a limp 4-iron that came up well short. In any event, it may be the only plaque on any golf course in North America commemorating a hole-in-one that never happened. That alone makes it worth seeing.

The price is insane. I'd much rather spend the two extra hours of travel and go to Bethpage as a matter of principle. The guys in the pro shop are generally cold and presumptive. Dont expect a warm welcome. Just expect great golf.

If the staff was nicer, the price was lower, and the President wasn't such an arrogant jerk, I'd rate it higher. Four stars.

Good, not great

This course has the feel of a private course. You certainly are made to feel special and taken care of. The course is pretty and challenging. It however is surrounded by projects on one side and next to nothing attractive all the way around. I would say go play and get the experience however I would not seek to play is twice. I just prefer more scenic courses.

Best Public Course I've Played

Appropriate that this be my first review as this is hands down one of my favorite courses of all time - including private courses. Don't let the fact this course is in the Bronx throw you off - it is a beautiful course. The views of the skyline and bridges were great. Greens were very large, but not overly difficult as the speed was relatively easy to predict. I particularly liked that the hazards made it easy to find my ball if I sliced.

A must play

Course was exceptional. Layout is great. its a big bold course. Fairways are wide and greens were perfect. Yes $240 for a round of golf is very, very high, but I feel the experience is worth it. Everyone very friendly, Drew behind the counter and Seth outside, they went out of there way to make your day enjoyable. This is definetly a once a year course for me now. This joins Bulle Rock in Maryland as a special course to play.

Phenomenal

A very interesting course, made you think about every shot, fescue mounds, bunkers and water are positioned very well.

-Wide enough fairways to make it playable for a higher handicap golfer.

-Greens rolled true, but were not very fast; I am not a great putter, but felt this was the easiest part of the course.

-Pace of play: tee'd off very early and it was still slow

-Cart or Walk: When we played, carts were not allowed on the fairway, so we decided to walk...100% the right choice....its a very easy walk (no hills really) and the pace of play was slow.

Recently played Pound Ridge, and this was much nicer and easier to play (Pound Ridge is very tight). Its expensive, but felt it was worth the money.

Believe the hype, this track is a bucket list course

Wow, just about everything this about this course lives up to expectations. This beautiful track plays long with many challenges that come into play. Rolling hills, surrounding fescue, and deep bunkers would provide a challenge to even professionals.

Today was a picture perfect day weather wise. Beautiful sunshine, low humidity, and calm winds made scoring on this tough track a little easier. Super friendly employees provide exceptional service. With the price of greens so high, you definitely get what you pay for. Definitely worth the money to play at least once for anyone golf enthusiast. For NYC residents, worth it to play whenever you can afford it.

Terrible layout, Poorly maintained, Awful Food

I thought I'd try a Trump course again, my first experience was terrible! I only went cause it was a business meeting. My God, this course is a nightmare. The layout is awful, the greens look like they haven't seen water in months, and the food was horrible! Don't waste your money!

Beauty in the Bronx

I had an opportunity to play Ferry Point this week and I was not disappointed in the least. The course is an amazing layout and in pristine condition. It is long and well bunkered. The greens roll true. There is an amazing practice facility to warm up.

My only complaints are that mats are only used on the range during the week. When paying $150+ the grass should be open. Also, there is NO drinking water or garbage cans on the course. The cart girls come around a fair amount and there is a snack shack after 4 and 15.

Great golf in the Bronx?

Never would have imagined that a 5 star golf course would be built in the Bronx. Incredible links style layout in excellent condition and managed perfectly by the Trump group. Had early weekday tee time and played in 4 hours. There is a city resident greens fee which makes this an even better deal.

Hard to find any flaws....

Loved it and will certainly return.

Best Course in 5 Boroughs

Well, I didn't want to like it given the name on it. And I didn't want to pay for it, given the price tag associated with it. But when a business associate offered to take me out, I couldn't say no. I was not disappointed.

The course is absolutely gorgeous, the setting is secluded enough that you know you're golfing, but the bridge, and the occasional skyline views are a nice reminder that you're still in NYC.

The holes very very challenging. I'm a long hitter (275 avg. ranging from 250-300), we played the blue tees (approx. 6400 yds.), and I was left facing a decision off every tee. Driver, 3W, something else, where to aim, which bunkers to challenge, which to lay up in front of.

Approaches ranged from easy-to-very difficult. The small, well-guarded green on the 7th, a tricky, accuracy-demanding hole from tee-to-green, was among the toughest I have seen, especially with the pin tucked up-front.

The greens were lightning fast; the fastest I have experienced on a public course (other than Bethpage Black when it is in tournament shape, as it has been this season for the Barclays). I was certainly bedeviled by the greens all day. Very tough to read.

One gripe on playing conditions: the greens were obviously very young. They were soft, and spongy, not of the quality you would expect from such a course, but this is nit picky, and expect it'll be different with another year or two of maturity.
