Trump's Ferry Point to host Barclays in 2017

RSS

Add another marquee golf event to Donald Trump's tally.

The Barclays will expand its rotation of courses to include Trump's Ferry Point course, which will host the FedEx Cup Playoff event in 2017 and again in 2020, according to a Golf.com report.

Ferry Point, which has been subjected to numerous construction delays, is not set to open to the public until 2015. Built upon a converted landfill in the Bronx, the course borders the East River and boasts the Manhattan skyline as a backdrop.

This is just the latest coup for Trump, who six weeks ago announced that Trump National Bedminster will host the 2022 PGA Championship, in addition to the 2017 U.S. Women's Open that was previously announced. His Trump National Golf Club in Potomac Falls, Virginia, was also awarded the 2017 Senior PGA Championship and he recently purchased Turnberry in Scotland, which is in the Open Championship rotation and last hosted the event in 2009.

Of course, those are all in addition to his renovated Blue Monster at Trump National Doral, which annually hosts the PGA Tour's WGC-Cadillac Championship, or Trump International in Puerto Rico, which hosts the Tour's Puerto Rico Open opposite its event at Doral.

The Barclays has been the first leg of the FedEx Cup Playoffs since the format's inception in 2007, and over that time has rotated venues around the New York metropolitan area. Adam Scott won last year at Liberty National in New Jersey and will defend his title this August at Ridgewood Country Club, while the event will move to Plainfield Country Club in 2015 and Bethpage Black in 2016. The 2018 and 2019 venues have not yet been announced.
