Interviewed: Architect Rees Jones
What they're saying ...
The Corica Park South Course is undergoing a transformation from a fairly nondescript layout to a modern links design that's going to make Alameda the best golf zip code in the East Bay.
The vision for Corica Park is that it becomes the default choice for anyone in the Bay Area serious about golf.
North Course Renovations Set to Begin June 25th
Following the opening the new South Course, plans will get underway for the full remodel of the North Course. Starting June 25th, 9-holes will be closed (while 9 remain open with special unlimited golf rates). Plans are to elevate the holes with import fill to improve drainage while re-contouring the holes to create better drainage and playing conditions. All tees, fairways, greens and cart paths will be new construction. The remodel of the first 9-holes is expected to take 12-15 months and will be regrassed as each hole is completed to allow for earlier opening. The first remodel 9 is planned for opening fall 2019. Once it opens the remaining 9-holes will close of remodel with all improvements plan to be completed by 2020.
During the remodel you will be able to play either the par-3 course, the new south course or enjoy unlimited golf (play as many holes as you like) for one great price on the remaining open North 9. Effective with start of the remodel on 9, golf rates begin at $10 for juniors, $15 seniors and $19 weekday and $29 weekends for all other play with optional $10 cart fees.
