The Alameda Commuters is one of Northern California's most prestigious amateur golf events.

The event has been played at the Alameda golf course, since its inception in 1927. The event is played at 72 hole stroke play format. A field of 208 golfers whom are some of the best amateurs from around the west coast are assembled for a 36 holes qualifier with 18 played on the Earl Fry North and Jack Clark South. After 36 holes the field is cut to low 50 and ties with the final 36 holes being played on the Earl Fry North Course. Any amateur with an Index of 5.2 or less, is welcome to enter.

NOTE: Due to construction for the NEW Jack Clark South Course, all 72 holes of play will be conducted on the Earl Fry North Course for 2018. Tee times for April 14th and April 15th will be conducted in a morning and afternoon format.

The Alameda Commuters Senior division, for players over 55, continues to attract one of the strongest senior amateur fields in Northern California. The Alameda Commuters is proud to announce the 30th annual Alameda Commuters Senior Golf Tournament, to be conducted April 21st and 22nd, on the Earl Fry Course at the Chuck Corica Golf Complex - Alameda California. Field will be made up of 52 senior amateur golfers: including past Alameda Commuters champions and players 55 years or older with NCGA GHIN indexes of 5.2, or lower.

And for the first time, the Alameda Commuters is hosting the Super Senior division, for players 65 and over. This division will play the Thursday and Friday before the final weekend.

Although the Alameda Commuters does not have a women's division at this time, we do extend invitations each year to some of the top local women players. These players must meet our entry criteria and play from the same championship tees the men play from.
