New Programs Offered on City’s Golf Course

The Chuck Corica Golf Complex is offering several new golf programs aimed at introducing Alameda youth to the game of golf.

The first is the Junior Second Sunday Series. The series is a group of tournaments on the par-three Mif Albright Course aimed to get kids on the course. It is also a great way to get kids to interact with other young golfers in the area. The series pairs the kids up by age and experience. Kids are allowed to borrow clubs.

The tournaments will be played on the second Sunday of each month with the first scheduled for March 13. The other dates are April 10, May 8, June 12, July 10, Aug.14, Sept. 11, Oct. 9 and Nov. 13. 

The cost is $10 for green fees, but if your child is a Youth on Course member the fee is just $1. Tee times are 9 a.m. Children can sign up for the event between 8 and 8:45 a.m. the day of each event to participate. The tournament series is for kids 16 and under.

The second series is called Mommy and Me. This is a more comprehensive coaching program for toddlers. This program allows children, from 4 to 6 years old, to train with their moms and coaches. Most of instruction is based on the US Kids Golf system — a progressive system that takes the juniors into more and more advanced level programs including a girls only and teen groups. 

Rates vary depending on number of lessons. For more information, contact Kris Moe, director of player development at Greenway Golf at 707-529-6458, or at

The final program is for the Alameda Junior Golf Association (AJGA). Registration is currently open for boys and girls 7 to 18 years old. The fee is $35.
