Each summer, since 1963, the San Leandro City Junior Golf Championship has been played at Monarch Bay Golf Club. Originally, this event had 30 to 40 participants, ages 7 to 17, from San Leandro and the immediate surrounding communities competing in this one-day event.
This year, the San Leandro City Junior Golf Championship will be held on both courses at Monarch Bay on August 11. It is anticipated that 210 juniors, from around Northern California, will participate, again making the San Leandro City Junior Championship one of the largest single-day City Junior Golf Championships in California. The Junior Golf Championship runs smoothly due largely to the volunteers from the Men's and Women’s Clubs at Monarch Bay, as well as American Golf staff.
The Public Works Department and American Golf continue to grow the game of golf by hosting various junior golf competitions at Monarch Bay. Other junior events include the High School Girls Spring Invitational and the High School Boys Fall Invitational.
