Breed to open academy at Trump's Ferry Point


Golf Channel instructor Michael Breed's namesake golf academy will open at the new Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point, it was announced Monday.

Breed is the No. 1 golf instructor in the state of New York and No. 13 on Golf Digest’s List of Top 50 teachers. Recognized as the PGA’s National Teacher of the Year in 2012, Breed is also the host of Golf Channel’s hit show, “The Golf Fix.”

The Michael Breed Golf Academy was previously located at the Manhattan Woods Golf Club in West Nyack, N.Y.

Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point, which features an 18-hole, Jack Nicklaus-designed links course, is a city-funded redevelopment project that will be owned and operated by the Trump Golf team. 

“We are thrilled to have Michael bring his immense talent and highly regarded academy to Trump Golf Links at Ferry Piont, which will be one of the finest public golf courses in the country,” Trump said in a release. “Michael is an incredible addition to an already stellar facility and we look forward to continuing our great relationship for many years to come.”
