What do customers think about Trump Golf Links At Ferry Point?

Bally's Golf Links at Ferry Point has garnered a generally positive reputation among its clientele. Reviewers frequently praise the course's condition, scenic views, and enjoyable golf experience. The greens are maintained well, the pace is appreciated, and the visual appeal of the links-style course is noted as a highlight. The overall ambiance, including the clubhouse and the outdoor areas, has received commendations, with special mention made of the spectacular views—especially in a dining context on occasions such as Father's Day and birthdays. Customer service appears to generally be satisfactory with the staff described as 'super friendly' and 'very helpful.' However, the price point presents a major sticking point for many. Guests feel that the cost is somewhat prohibitive, particularly given some service limitations like early closure of the Halfway House and restrictions on cart returns. Additional critiques include a 'stiff vibe,' slow service, and sub-par food relative to the cost. A lack of amenity options and seemingly strict policies on cart usage further contribute to the mixed feedback. While Bally's Golf Links is lauded for its golf experience, the actual service, amenities, and value proposition leave room for improvement in affecting overall company reputation positively.

Positive Feedback

Customers have positively highlighted Bally's Golf Links at Ferry Point for offering a high-quality golfing experience. The course is described as being in excellent condition with true-rolling greens, firm fairways, and well-manicured fescue making for playable conditions. A Nicklaus-designed course, it is rated highly within the region and is acknowledged for its challenging yet exciting layout. Amenities such as the complimentary driving range add to the overall positive experience. The venue is also praised for its extraordinary scenery, with the surrounding water and bridge views particularly emphasized. The brunch and live music offerings were appreciated, and specific events, like Father's Day celebrations and birthday parties, were distinctly memorable for guests. Friendly staff and an overall great condition of the course complement the remarkable aesthetics and quality of the golfing experience.

Concerns and Threads

Despite many positive experiences, patrons reflect several criticisms concerning Bally's Golf Links. The high price, particularly for a public course, is a common gripe. Cost-related issues are exacerbated by paid cart requirements with no option for push-carts, which could deter those looking for a more economical play. Service elements such as the premature closing of the Halfway House and the constraints on cart return times have also detracted from the customer experience. Furthermore, the political association of the course has led to a perceived 'stiff vibe,' impacting the ambiance. Slow service and less than exceptional food quality have compounded the negative perspectives, with guests commenting that the course's offering does not match its premium pricing. The rigidity concerning amenities and restrictions on carts also impede overall customer satisfaction, hinting at a level of exclusivity which can alienate an average golfer seeking both a challenge on the course and a welcoming atmosphere off it.

Played: October 2023 Price (Weekday): NYC Resident $171 ($212 with cart) Non-Resident $229 ($270 with cart) Why is it not 5 Stars: - Price was a little bit much, especially for a weekday. - Halfway House Closed before 4pm. - Carts have to be returned by 6pm? What happens if you don’t? Not sure. Pre-Round ✅Range (TaylorMade Range balls) ✅Short Game Area ✅Putting Green The track is was in really nice condition. The greens rolled very true, and were a very nice pace. The fescue was cut down to very playable levels. Overall a very fun and visually stunning links course just a short ride from NYC. Worth visiting at least once.

My family and me went here to celebrate Father's day. We decided to do it on a whim as we drove over the bridge. It turned out to be an incredible brunch, with live music, in a great outdoor area. The food was excellent, as were the drinks. The only thing more impressive is the view of the water and the bridge.

4.5 Stars... Maybe it was the day, 4th of July, but the staff was incredible, the clubhous is impeccable and the grounds are gorgeous. Totally unexpected and absolutely worth a visit. Open to the public open till 9 Mon-Thurs and till 10 Fri-Sun which is great for a quick drink and snack at the bar on those boring-don't know what to day nights at home.
