Description

The Bay Club at Mattapoisett is a private golf and lifestyle community on 625 rolling wooded acres near the shores of Buzzard's Bay (close to Cape Cod). Member-owned, the club is built around a Brad Faxon-Brad Booth championship golf course and also features racquet sports, gourmet dining and many other athletic and cultural pursuits all within its gates.

The par 71 golf course plays to 7,068 yards from the championship tees, par-71. It is best described as a classic parkland layout with old-fashioned square tee boxes, push-up greens and strategic bunkering. It features close to 100 bunkers and at least four sets of tee markers on each hole.

The Bay Club was named a Green Golf Community by GolfCourseHome.

Designed by Brad Faxon to permit practice of any and every shot on the regulation course, the Bay Club golf practice facility is one of the most comprehensive in the SouthCoast area and a ticket to game improvement. Ten acres in size, it includes a massive double-ended range, an intricate short-game practice area, chipping and putting areas.

The course has also received the prestigious Silver Sanctuary Rating from Audubon International, which community executives say, "reflects the members’ love of nature and respect for conservation practices in maintaining the course."

About the Area
Mattapoisett is a picturesque coastal town along the shoreline of Buzzard’s Bay. Its serene setting inspired the Wampanoag Indians to call it Mattapoisett, meaning “place of resting.”

Before the Civil War, the town’s principal business was shipbuilding and whaling, with four shipyards in operation before the year 1800. The town traded with Nantucket, Newport, New York and Savannah, GA.

By 1855 there were 16 whaling ships in operation and residents who were not involved in the maritime trades farmed and raised sheep. Timber from the Bay Club site was harvested for shipbuilding and dragged by horses the one-quarter mile to the harbor’s edge

The discovery of oil in 1870 marked the end of the whaling era and the demise of shipbuilding. “The Wanderer”, built in Mattapoisett in 1878 was the last whaling ship to sail from New Bedford. In 1924, The Wanderer was shipwrecked on Sow and Pigs Reef. The site of 100’s of shipwrecks over the centuries

The town’s tree-shaded streets are lined with historic homes and quaint shops. Picturesque Ned’s Point Lighthouse and Shipyard Park are steady reminders of the town’s nautical past. Today, first-rate marine facilities and plentiful moorings attract a stellar selection of sailors and sportfishers.

Only a quarter of a mile away, the Buzzard’s Bay area offers some of the finest deep water sailing, fishing and other water sports available in the world. The surrounding South Coast region offers unique shopping and other recreational destinations for the entire family.

The Bay Club is slightly over an hour’s drive from Boston and 45 minutes from Providence. Historic sites like Plymouth Rock and the Adams National Historical Park are within an hour’s drive. Cape Cod, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard are easily reached and explored from The Bay Club, via car and/or ferry or private boat.
