Golf Tournament to Fund Cleanup of New Bedford Harbor (USA)

Golf Tournament to Fund Cleanup of New Bedford Harbor

On May 22, 2012 South Coast golfers have a unique opportunity to play a round of golf and clean up New Bedford Harbor at the same time.

That is because the Buzzards Bay Coalition and the Bay Club at Mattapoisett are partnering to host a Golf Tournament specifically designed to fund nitrogen pollution cleanup in New Bedford Harbor.

For golfers, it’s a rare opportunity to enjoy the private club’s parkland-style 7,100 yard championship course, designed by PGA Tour professional Brad Faxon in conjunction with golf course architect Brad Booth. The tournament uses a “best ball of the foursome” format, so golfers of all abilities can participate.

For the harbor, all proceeds will go into a dedicated fund to support projects that clean up nitrogen pollution in New Bedford Harbor.

This event is unique because the proceeds go directly to new technologies and projects that will improve water quality in New Bedford Harbor,” says Bay Coalition Vice-President of Operations Maureen Coleman. “It’s a simple equation: Your round of golf on this fantastic course means cleaner water in New Bedford Harbor.”
