QUINCY (WBZNewsRadio) - Furnace Brook Golf Club will open for the first time under new city ownership April 1. It's part of a plan from the city of Quincy to provide "affordable, local golf" to residents. Friday's opening also marks the first time the golf course will open to the public in 50 years.

“We are excited to add this recreational opportunity to our inventory of parks and open spaces,” said Mayor Thomas Koch. “Our plan is to provide affordable, local golf for our residents and in the process introduce many more residents to the game of golf. This is a beautiful parcel of open space and we are glad to keep it as such for generations to come.”

The club turns 100 years old next year and the city is working hard leading up to the centennial, including building a new clubhouse and other improvements to the course.

Fees for Quincy residents will be $45 for 18 holes on weekdays and $55 on weekends, which is the same fees charged at county-owned Presidents Golf Course. Nonresidents will be charged $10 extra, which is still less than the fees before the city takeover. Carts are $20 for 18 holes and $15 for 9 holes.

Reservations for tee times will be required and can be booked up to 48 hours in advance. Limited and junior memberships are still available, however Family and unlimited memberships are full with a waiting list for the 2023 season.
