NYC Approves New Management for Trump Golf Course

A New York City panel this week approved a new management company for a public golf course in the Bronx that was previously run by former President Donald Trump’s company, The City reports.

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced earlier this year the city would cancel its contracts with Trump following the storming of the Capitol on Jan. 6, claiming “inciting an insurrection against the U.S. government clearly constitutes criminal activity. The City of New York will no longer have anything to do with the Trump Organization.”

This week, a city panel held a hearing to determine whether to approve a new management company for Ferry Point, which was formerly known as Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point. Although an attorney for Trump and two members of the panel objected, the move passed by a vote of 4-2, giving control of the course to the Atlanta-based company Bobby Jones Links, which is set to take over in November. The homeless shelter operator CORE Service Group was previously planned to take over, but eventually dropped out of contention.
