New York City has chosen Donald Trump's company to run a new public golf course in the Bronx. 

 
Trump says he hopes to bring prestigious tournaments to the Ferry Point Golf Course. The city plans to open the golf course in 2014 on 222 acres of parkland near the Whitestone Bridge.
 
Parks and Recreation Commissioner Adrian Benepe says the Trump Organization has a good record of running golf courses nationwide. It has granted the company a 20-year license agreement to operate the course. The company will build a $10 million clubhouse as part of the deal.
 
The Trump Organization holds other concessions with the city's parks department. It operates the Central Park Carousel and the Wollman and Lasker ice skating rings, also in Central Park.
