On October 16, several politicians took part in a ribbon cutting photo opportunity event for a new golf course at Ferry Point Park in Throggs Neck.

This PGA style course was designed by golf legend Jack Nicklaus and will be operated by The Trump Organization. Bronx, as well a city and state representatives were all there willing to show their support Donald Trump at the ribbon cutting ceremony.

Who benefits from this project? Will New Yorkers be able to play for free?

You may recall this parkland was a city landfill until the early 1960s and NYC has reportedly paid $100 million to build the course.

For all this money, the operator has committed to doing golf clinics for local youth.
