Exceptional Golf. Eco-Driven. Equity-Focused.
Greenway Golf believes that golf courses should be sustainable open spaces for everyone. Our mission is to unlock the potential of golf course space by harmonizing the successful operation of our golf business with ecological stewardship and community benefit through innovative, measurable environmental practices, inclusive, results-driven social initiatives and inspired design.
Corica Park, Greenway’s flagship property in Alameda, California, is testament to our efforts to model how golf courses can be redesigned and successfully operated as places for flora, fauna and all people to flourish.
By harmonizing exceptional golf experiences, eco-driven stewardship, equity-focused programs, and sound fiscal management, our ongoing mission is to open up Corica Park—in a welcoming and inclusive manner—in service of the entire Alameda community and its visitors.
By leveraging world-class design in combination with investments and improvements across Corica Park, Greenway has created a nationally recognized, award-winning golf experience for local residents and visitors alike.
Named one of the top 15 municipal courses in the country by Golf Magazine, the South Course was completely redesigned by famed architect Rees Jones. This Australian Sandbelt style course is the first of its kind in the Bay Area.
Currently undergoing a complete renovation by Robert Trent Jones II Golf Course Architects, the North Course features rolling hills, wide fairways, stunning greens, and Scottish style pot bunkers. The North Course Front Nine is currently open for play with the Back 9 renovation set for completion Spring 2024.
With greens that roll fast and true, the award-winning Mif Albright was ranked among the “Best Par-3 Courses in America” - Golf.com The 9-hole Mif Albright offers an updated, fun golf experience where juniors, families, and friends can come together to enjoy the game of golf.
The Corica Park Practice Facility provides an exceptional practice experience. This invaluable resource for golfers of every skill level is dedicated to bringing out the best in players and their golf games.
Ecological stewardship is central to our ethos. Regenerating the natural environment honors the traditions of the game by preserving open recreational space for current and future generations.
Intricate irrigation networks, comprehensive water capture and recycle systems and a unique sand and drought-tolerant turf combination have significantly reduced net water usage. Innovative biochar applications are dramatically reducing chemical inputs, and Corica Park’s newest course is largely pesticide-free. Recent experiments with biodegradable waste products for natural cart path alternatives are also poised to minimize our carbon footprint.
A complete renovation has transformed the formerly degraded landscape at Corica Park into a vibrant ecosystem. Newly created natural habitats are sanctuaries for plankton, fish, pollinating butterflies and more than a dozen species of birds, most of which arrived after Greenway’s complete overhaul of the 300 acres.
We’re leveraging golf as a vehicle for change: Our hope is for the sport we love and our space to reflect the diversity of today’s world.
Active outreach to engage local residents from long-time golfers to those who typically do not visit Corica Park re-envisions the golf courses as true community hubs. Over the last three years, we have created 1,500+ new and FREE uses of the space. Participants include East Bay youth, community organizations, schools, small businesses and nonprofits.
Inclusive programming and focus on approachable play are designed to remove the cultural and financial hurdles that limit access to golf and other outdoor recreation. The participants of our no-cost youth golf programs to date are 94% people of color, 51% female and 90% first-time golfers. Activation of space for non-golf recreation includes martial arts, yoga, soccer, running, and more.
Land use diversification efforts leverage Corica Park’s 300+ acres to create opportunities for learning, mentorship and workforce development. We have provided more than 6,000 paid on-the-job training and professional development hours for teens and young adults, focused on building skills for future careers. Workshops and clinics for life-long learning opportunities on topics including financial literacy, healthy living and environmental education are offered throughout the year.
