Renovated Baylands Golf Links and South Course at Corica Park Re-Open Renovated Baylands Golf Links and South Course at Corica Park Re-Open T he fairways at Baylands Golf Links (bottom), the former Palo Alto Municipal Golf Course, and the South Course at Corica Park are both back in business. Baylands Golf Links re-opened May 26 following a complete renovation and approval of a three-year contract with OB Sports by the City Council. The renovation project, which began as an effort to accommodate a levee that had to be relocated to improve flood control, morphed into a complete redesign, with all 18 holes being relocated and the course taking on a links-style feel (there's even two pot bunkers!) with 40% less turf, more slopes and 55 acres of new wetlands. The highly anticipated re-designed South Course at Corica Park in Alameda, meanwhile, opened its fairways to the public on June 23. Once a ho-hum track, the South Course has been crafted in the style of the classic sand-belt courses of Australia and features among other things "run-up" ramps onto the greens that will make the course more fun for players of all abilities. NCGA members receive $20 off the green fee at Corica Park every day. NEW LOOKS ROBERT KAUFMAN
