Here is a preview of what's in store for 2024! We will be sharing personal stories, expert interviews, updates, and results of our work throughout the year. Sign up for our mailing list and follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to stay informed.
What is your wish list for Corica Park? Be on the lookout for opportunities to share your voice with Corica Park Open Space Project. Our Community Engagement Director, Tamara Sabella, will continue surveying golfers and local residents in January for feedback on community-wide needs.
Get ready to hone your skills at one of the largest Toptracer Range facilities in California! We are scheduled to launch in February with a dedicated range team, ready to answer your questions and show you the ropes.
Ride in style in brand-new golf carts starting in March. We are as excited as you to say goodbye to the current motley fleet!
The Alameda Commuters Golf Tournament will return in April for its 96th year. For the first time ever, the Championship Division will feature a new, exciting 45-hole format.
We're proud of having some of the best greens in Northern California. We are turning our focus to other parts of the South Course, which are in need of some TLC. Our dedicated grounds crew, led by head superintendent Vinny Paul, are busy at work making upgrades. Refurbished tee boxes and other improvements will be completed by May.
You will be able to view our plans for the Fire Tower in June. We went back to the drawing board after receiving feedback for revisions on our original plan, and we will be working with the City’s Planning Department and the Planning Board to finalize a new design. Plans include a new mural, pollinator gardens, and drought-resistant plants.
We're excited to transform access into opportunity with a new internship program for alumni of our youth programming. Former participants and volunteers of On The Green Summer Camps, many of whom came to us as first-time golfers from historically excluded groups, will receive paid professional development training and job opportunities starting in July.
We will continue our efforts to grow the game with new and expanded programs in August (and throughout the year) for the LGBTQ+ community, veterans, women, and youth. New seasons for some of our junior programs, which our team works tirelessly to offer at no charge to families, have already kicked off, and registration is open for Winter Women's Clinics and Golden Bear High-Performance Camp. New program partners this year will include PGA Hope and Drive 4 Change. Check out our Calendar of Events for the latest information.
Following a resounding success in 2023, the second annual Lucious Bateman Foundation Tournament will return in September to honor a great man and raise funds to create life-changing opportunities for youth.
New pollinator habitats, biochar applications and other environmental initiatives will be implemented in the spring and fall, leading up to Sustainable Golf Week in October. Follow our progress as we work to achieve GEO certification, the only sports-related certification program in the world to be code-compliant with internationally recognized ISEAL sustainability standards.
Efforts to reimagine the golf course as a true community hub will expand space use to new groups in 2024. Based on our research and feedback from the local community, communal spaces for artists to create and display their work, as well as inclusive access to education and activities that promote health, are pressing needs. As a result, we will be focusing on broadening our reach to the arts and wellness arenas in November (and throughout the year) while also continuing to share Corica Park spaces with schools, small businesses, and nonprofits.
And last but certainly not least, the Back Nine of the North Course will be completed in December! The next phase of construction is scheduled to start in the spring. See our latest progress update and stay tuned for a new update next month.
