Ferry Point Park Development
Ferry Point Park Golf Course is located adjacent to the East River beneath the historic Whitestone Bridge. A truly unique site with fantastic views of Manhattan, the property will be transformed into a new tournament quality link-style signature golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus.
The 7,200 yard layout provides two “returning nines” that meander through grass dunes reminiscent of the links courses of Scotland and Ireland. All of the golf holes require a balance of strategy and power, and while each hole will be unique, they all maintain a unified look and feel. Multiple tees will allow golfers of all levels to enjoy an unforgettable experience, yet the course is still designed to provide a great challenge to advanced players.
The course, which will be operated by a concessionaire, provides ample spectating and corporate hospitality areas. Construction began in October 2009 and is expected to be substantially complete in fall 2012 with the maintenance building, comfort station/snack bar and rain shelter complete in spring 2013.
