Chemawa Golf Course

Chemawa Golf Course is an 18-hole public course now in it’s second generation of ownership by the Bourgue family, featuring nicely-manicured fairways and greens and newly refurbished clubhouse.

NORTH ATTLEBORO, Mass – The good things in life always seem to get better, and the same thing can be said about Chemawa Golf Course, conveniently located off Route 1 in North Attleboro (MA).

The course, founded in 1959 by The Bourque family, was originally a nine-hole course that became a favorite for local golfers. When the family decided to expand the public course to a full 18 holes, it quickly earned a reputation as a beautifully manicured golf course that can be enjoyed by golfers no matter what their handicap may be.


When the course opens this week to start the 2024 season, golfers will be welcomed to a clubhouse that made dramatic improvements to the interior. The soft green colors on the walls create a warm, calm environment, and a roomy marble bar is the perfect place for a post-round meal and beverage.

There are new chairs in the clubhouse that are very comfortable, and the backs are lined with a special material that absorbs sound. Some tables overlook the course, and the food is simply superb. I live nearby and even if I don’t have time for a quick round of golf, I’ll stop at Chemawa for a delicious meal.


The course is 5,285 yards from the back tees and 4,368 yards from the front tees. While not long you need to keep it in the fairway and the greens are small, so it makes Chemawa a great course to sharpen the short game. And as I said, the condition of the course is simply the best.

Chemawa is easy to walk, but if you like to ride, owner Glen Bourque has acquired a new fleet of Club Car golf carts to glide you through the fairways. And after you finish your round don’t forget to visit the clubhouse for a meal and beverage. You’ll love all the new amenities that the Bourque family has provided for its thousands of its loyal golfers.
