The new Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point in New York is reportedly the nation's most expensive golf course in terms of construction cost. The price tag on the public course, built on a former landfill in the Bronx, is $269 million.

The plan to build the course began in 1998. Then in 2001, New York mayor Rudy Giuliani tapped Jack Nicklaus to design it. Donald Trump got involved with the project, which had hit repeated snags, in 2011. Trump hopes the course will be able to host a major tournament such as the U.S. Open or PGA Championship.

Here's a look at the venue, which offers a riverfront view of New York's skyline:
