Whaling City Golf Course is owned by The City of New Bedford. Famed architect Donald Ross built the course in 1920. 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 the 1970’s the City of New Bedford took over the course and renamed it to New Bedford Municipal Golf Course.
In 2000, JGM began renovation of the golf course and closed for that season. The renovation includes a new irrigation system, renovated tees and fairways to bentgrass, bunker restoration, and new cart paths. The course opened in the spring of 2001 as Whaling City Golf Course.
