  onedollarwed - 2/4/13
A big golf adventure - at "The Whale," get ready for a New Bedford sleigh ride. It should be called "The Beast." I love the big holes - get that driver ready! The layout is odd and confusing at first, the maintenance lacking, but the golf is exhilarating.

9/22/10, Whaling City is in good shape. Nice Donald Ross course. Long with small greens. $39 with a cart.
