Detailed description of Whaling City Golf Course at New Bedford

Whaling City Golf Course is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in New Bedford, Massachusetts.

Whaling City Golf Course first opened for play in 1920. The course was designed by Donald Ross. At the time the nine-hole course was named Whaling City. A back nine holes were added in 1947 and in the 1970's the course was modified to accommodate highway construction. Also during this period the City of New Bedford took over the course and renamed it to New Bedford Municipal Golf Course.

In 2000, Johnson Golf Management began renovation of the golf course and closed the course for the 2000 season. The renovation included a new irrigation system, tees, and fairways changed to bentgrass, bunker restoration, and new cart paths. The course re-opened in the spring of 2001 as Whaling City Golf Course.

Whaling City Golf Course measures 6,544 yards from the back tees for a course rating is 70.2 and a slope rating of 126. Par for the course is 72.

In March 2018, with city council approval, Bruce and Susan Carlson began managing the property. They see the course, which reportedly lost more than $113,000 at the end of the 2016 season, as having strong potential.
