the course

We could only host the David J. Machado Memorial Golf Tournament at his favorite course, the Fall River Country Club. Established in 1895 and tucked away on a quiet and secluded parcel of land in the North End of Fall River, MA, FRCC is a classic New England golf course. Situated along the banks of the Taunton River, FRCC features water views on 15 of 18 holes, along with beautiful vistas from the full-service Clubhouse. Regardless of skill level, your golf experience is certain to be both memorable and enjoyable!




Enjoy cocktail hour overlooking the Taunton river beginning at 5pm. Buffet dinner will be served at 6pm.
