Green is in good condition.
Nice view on back nine and 18 th hole is a great par 6 to make a birdie.

Good for the money
Considering the drought the course was in good condition. Staff was friendly but wished the Marshall would have done more about the guys who drove their cart on to a teeing area and next to a green. Watching them hit 3 balls each on 18 was no fun either. Great views!

Unique is about the only way to describe Lake Chabot. I think you either love it or hate it. What an interesting course, but worth trying once then you can decide if you like it or not.
Course Layout -- B-
Some fun holes with tons of elevation changes, unfortunately frustrating at times that you hit a great tee shot but are not rewarded for it by having a good lie. Every hole is tees off up high, goes down into a valley and back up again. If you like to hit the driver, this is the place. Wide open, you can hit driver on just about every non-par 3.
Greens -- A-
A little slow, but they are so unique. All are dime shaped and have no discernible break to them. Yet each one has massive break and speed issues as they are all on the sides of hills. Didn't make a putt all day. Feel like course knowledge would help on these. Great condition though.
Fairways -- C
Many areas are barren and so you basically hit off trimmed weeds. Would like to see a little more attention given to fairways and then let the rough die off. Seems like parts of fairways need some more TLC.
Sandtraps -- There aren't any on the course
Staff -- A Very nice and helpful
Overall -- B-
Again, play it once, it isn't like any course I've played. You may love it or hate it. Can't deny the views from 15/16 are incredible!

East Bay on Display
Back 9 have great views of BOTH Oakland & San Francisco ! ORDER THE WINGS & FRIES! They dont look it, but are cooked to perfection and the fries have a slight hit of garlic..awesome! Course requires you club up and RIP IT !!! Greens are well paced and reward those who can chip well or putt from the rough with accuracy :-) Golf cart trails go thru the woods and the variety of trees will have you thinking ur in a 3rd world jungle, only to be approached by deer, turkey, and hawks. Course staff, will always be ready to allow play thrus for those who are faster and actually do monitor play pace....WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE AND I WILL BE BACK !!!

Course was in good shape but first tee event
The course was in good shape and the greens were much better than similar 9 hole courses. Got stuck behind a group of guys just there to drink and smoke so pave was extremely slow. Also there was a first tee event going on so holes one and nine were being used and we were told to start on two and make our way around. By the time we got to 9 there was a 2 group backup waiting to play. Not a great experience but course was in good shape and seems like this was not the norm. Would try again

This course is good for your short game.its very quaint ,it makes you use your short clubs being a 7 handicapper on a 9 hole it makes you make decent choices.Also you have to be in some kind of shape because its a bit hilly.Good for the money
