Ribbon cutting at new Bronx golf course

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - The Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point Park will be a public golf course with no membership fees when it opens in 2015.

"I wanted a full season," said real estate mogul Donald Trump when asked why the wait to open the course.

A ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled for Wednesday.

Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point took 12 years to complete at a cost of about $100M.

The 200-acre urban oasis was once a landfill. The project hit many snags over the years until Trump stepped in in 2011 at the request of Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

"He wanted to see it finished before the end of his administration.  We built one of the great courses of the world.  It will bring so much money to NYC," said Trump.

Designed by golf legend Jack Nicklaus, the 18-hole course lies at the foot of the Whitestone Bridge near St. Raymond Cemetery.

"Next summer we will have some public events," said Trump.
