Corica Park Reopens

The Corica Park Golf Course is OPEN.  Please read modified procedures below.

We welcome the opportunity to be open for golf and serve our guests. However, not all facilities and services will be open initially. We are adapting procedures to fully comply with the Alameda County Health Order and guidance from the City of Alameda.  The safety of our customers and staff is of paramount importance.  All patrons are required to adhere to the safety protocol at all times.

The Corica Park facility is unique due to its scale and simultaneous operations of golf and construction. As such, we have opted to bring back our services over time and in a phased-in manner.

We plan to operate a clean environment and ask your assistance to comply with the established guidelines of physical distancing for both guests and employees.  Please check back regularly for updates.

It's time to discover one of America's new best public access courses, the all new South Course (opened June 22, 2018).

In addition to the new Corica Park South Course,  you'll find an entire property renovation and rebranding underway with over $20 million in ongoing improvements. As part of the renovation you can enjoy the new completed 9-hole par-3 course, selected one of America''s Top 13 par 3 courses, which is perfect for a quick round or short game practice. Or if you are looking for the best environment to practice with professional power tee matts or PGA quality natural grass turf, enjoy the premier practice range. Or come out and play the five holes currently open on the original North Course (with great unlimited golf specials) while the other holes are under renovation. For more information on the New Corica Park be sure to explore the website or contact the golf shop.
