Golfers can help clean Buzzards Bay

South Coast golfers have an opportunity to enjoy an afternoon of golf at a championship course while helping to clean up nitrogen pollution in New Bedford Harbor. The Buzzards Bay Coalition and the Bay Club at Mattapoisett are partnering to host a golf outing on Tuesday, May 28. All proceeds from the outing will go into a dedicated fund to support projects that stop nitrogen pollution – Buzzards Bay’s largest pollutant – from reaching New Bedford Harbor. Golfers will play the private Bay Club’s parkland-style 7,100 yard course.  The outing uses a “best ball of foursome” format, so golfers of all abilities are welcome to participate. Golfers can register online, individually or as a foursome, at through May 22. Not a golfer? You can still enjoy the festivities and show support for clean water by attending the cocktail party reception, which will begin at 5 p.m. after the conclusion of play. The reception will feature an open bar, hors d'oeuvres, live music, and a live and silent auction on the Golf House Restaurant patio overlooking the course.
