Hundreds will flock to the Chuck Corica Golf Complex this weekend to take part in one of Alameda’s most significant yearly events. The very best Northern California amateur golfers will participate in the 89th Annual Alameda Commuters Golf Tournament at the golf complex on Bay Farm beginning this Saturday, April 16.

There were lots of changes to the top of the leaderboard during the first two rounds of play at the 88th Annual Alameda Commuters Tournament.

The Bay Area’s most prestigious amateur golf tournament kicked off last Saturday, April 18, at the Chuck Corica Golf Complex. The field consisted of 208 of the best amateur golfers on the West Coast with some travelling all the way from La Jolla to participate in the spring event.

Commuting into and from Alameda over the next decades is bound to take longer, and I think it is “by design” by many government agencies.

The Caltrans project main goal is to improve the 23rd and 29th avenue exits of Interstate 880. As the primary impact is to the Oakland neighborhoods, the project mostly concentrated on appeasing Oakland neighborhood needs. The Alameda County Transportation Commission’s hired a consultant for the five-year project.

Jonathan De Los Reyes created a wide distance between himself and the rest of the field on his way to win the 87th Annual Alameda Commuters Tournament last Sunday, May 4.

De Los Reyes entered the second weekend of the tournament with a four-stroke lead at seven-under par 135. But his play in the third round, or moving day as it is called at the Commuters removed any doubt that Reyes would be the winner.

The 87th Annual Alameda Commuters Golf Tournament will be coming to the Island City at the Chuck Corica Golf Complex on the weekend of April 26 and May 3. 
This year a field of more than 200 of the best amateur golfers in the country will compete over the two weekends. The Northern California Golf Association licenses the event and will award 250 points to the winner. The 26th annual Alameda Commuters Senior Golf Tournament with take place during the second weekend of the event.
