Golf Course Information
Since the beginning of the century, the Country Club of New Bedford has had a great tradition, which has led to its current prestigious reputation in the New England area. The Club has a modest beginning, which took place before the turn of the century. The original club was located in the West End of New Bedford bordering on Hawthorne, Brigham, and Allen streets continuing out to Rockdale Avenue.
Several enthusiasts of golf formed the Club. It was called the Hawthorne Club. The six-hole layout became so popular that the club founders decided the course was too short and crowded. They closed the course and moved to our present site.
Although some were pessimistic about this move, within 16 months after its 1902 incorporation, the Club had 350 members and a waiting list. The original Board of Governors consisted of Club President John Bullard, William E. Hatch, Edward S. Brown, Edward T. Pierce, Oliver Prescott, William West, Clarence A. Cook and Frederick D. Stetson.
