Furnace Brook Golf Club funding gets Quincy City Council’s OK

  • Plans presented by Natural Resources Commissioner Dave Murphy project that the new clubhouse will open in October 2024.
  • The project will cost just under $14 million plus an additional $5.6 million in debt service over the life of a 20-year bond.
  • Murphy said the new facility will turn a profit and pay for itself over time.

QUINCY – Plans for new clubhouse at Furnace Brook Golf Club has passed the final hurdle, with the City Council approving $14 million in funding. This autumn, the clubhouse from 1926 will be demolished.

A maintenance building will also be replaced and improvements will be made nearby Forbes Hill Park, including $250,000 in repairs to Forbes Hill Tower, the water tower built at the turn of the 20th century.

Initial plans for the project were drawn up in late 2021, months before the city took ownership of the nine-hole course. Community meetings led to changes in the planned location of the new building and parking, Natural Resources Commissioner Dave Murphy said. Improvements to the park space were added, such as shade structures, athletic fields, and native trees.
