About Country Club of New Bedford
For over 100 years, 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 had a modest beginning, which took place before the turn of the 20th century. The original club, called the Hawthorne Club, was formed by several golf enthusiasts and was located in the West End of New Bedford. 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 it to the current site. In 1923 the clubhouse burned to the ground, and the current clubhouse was built over the original foundation in 1924, with several improvements over the years.
Well-known golf-course architect Willie Park had planned, designed and supervised the building of the original nine holes. In 1924, renowned golf-course architect Donald Ross redesigned the course, eventually making it into an 18-hole layout. In 2006 a major renovation of the club and pro shop was completed. The club has produced a number of outstanding players, and many prestigious events have been held here through the years. Country Club of New Bedford has welcomed dignitaries from government, theatre, athletics and golf.
"Boxgroove is a tremendous added-value service to our membership, especially those who travel," said Joe Cordani Jr., PGA Head Professional at Country Club of New Bedford. "Boxgroove provides a terrific way to showcase our Donald Ross layout, and networking with other clubs across the country will only enhance all who get involved."
More than a tee-time aggregator, reciprocal-club network or fractionalized country-club membership, Boxgroove, founded in 2009, offers players seeking diverse golf experiences the opportunity to forge new golf relationships and play private courses in the United States, which they select from the Boxgroove options. Boxgroove provides members with meaningful opportunities to play private golf clubs around the U.S., a powerful arena for business and social networking, a simple Web-based method of accessing tee times at private golf clubs and a national community that shares passion for the game. For business or vacation travel, or even a weekend away, Boxgroove provides members with the chance to explore appealing golf venues while meeting new players or bringing their own guests.
Boxgroove's Membership Lead Service is a valuable component of a club's approach to member satisfaction. It provides club management the capability of contacting specific target groups of golfers, filtered and selected by each club, to present special offers or information. A prominent feature of the program is that Boxgroove will share its golfer analytic data with the executive staff of affiliated clubs to identify and reach out to prospective members.
