It was Interesting layout.
I enjoy the course actually a lot but it seems a bit hard for the average golfer I think. The slopes are indeed a challenge even for me a very low index player. But the Views and just experience is worth coming and the course is in good shape. Plus the hill top café up there is AWESOME.. BBQ outside for ya cant get better then that.. So in all great time will come back ready to battle them hills..

Another EPIC day at Chabot
Another EPIC day at Lake Chabot yesterday.
GG, MOC, Fast Eddie and MaMaMark threw down the challenge again.
The course is really nice right now and the greens are recovering GREAT from the recent punch.
Weather was perfect and the grass is green everywhere.
Finished in 3hr 40min and that was waiting for the 2-some in front of us a few shots thru the day.
Go enjoy a round at MY favorite course in Oakland.

Scenic golf course
One needs to be a straight hitter to keep the ball in play.quite challenging.

Fun with a View
This was my second time playing this course and both times have been challenging, exciting, and lastly beautiful. Two highlights I must mentioned are the 18th PAR SIX, but even more spectacular in my mind is the VIEW on the 15th hole. It honestly is a view to remember.

LONG HITTERS REJOICE!
Lake Chabot is a municipal in a regional park with stunning views of SF BAY from several holes on the back 9. Golfers, don't be lulled by the views. The course is VERY HILLY, steep grades and downhill lies, with long approaches on nearly every hole: it's been a long time since I've taken out my driver on a Par 3. Keep in mind, too, that Chabot has the only Par 6 west of the Mississipppi. Because of the protected surroundings, there are huge flocks of wild turkeys and several herds of deer -- all photo ops!
Weather plays a big part in the conditions; it had rained recently, and water was running under the grass surface everywhere, making for mushy lies and mud underfoot. Twenty years ago, when I first played there, Chabot was pretty beat up, badly irrigated and really scruffy. New management has made this a much nicer playing experience. The only reason I don't recommend this course to my friends is because of the extreme challenge of its length and steep terrain. This is not a "fun" course, just challenging.

Pace is too SLOW!
It is frustrating to play early and still have to endure
a 4 hr 50 min round. This course really needs a pro-active marshall to keep the pace moving. The course had just been aerated but otherwise in good condition.

My Play at Lake Chabot Golf course
my experience at Lake Chabot on 3/21/2014 was as usual an experience not to be forgotten. Each time I play this course although I know the breaks on the greeens were deceiving. Some were slower than usual and others faster than usual. This is such a great track I lookk forward to playing everytime I get the opportunity. The staff is always very professional and that goes along way for my money.
Not to mention the shape of the course is incredible and appears to be getting better everytime I play there. Keep up the good work Lake Chabot team.
