THE BRONX - The construction of the new golf course at Ferry Point Park is complete after more than 10 years in the making.

The 192-acre course has scenic views of the Manhattan skyline and both the Throgs Neck and Whitestone bridges. It was designed by pro golfer Jack Nicklaus and is being operated by the Trump Organization.

The course has 18 holes, and the staff says it is PGA tournament quality.

The course faced dozens of obstacles during construction, including worries of methane gas rising from the once crowded landfill, but course officials say all those issues are cleared up, and they are excited that the project is finally coming along.

Staff says the golf course will be open to the public some time in 2015 because the new grass needs to grow and technical kinks need to be worked out.
