Looks Steeper Than It Plays
Played for the first time. At first when driving through the course looked to be steep. When we got out it was not as steep as it looked. The par 6 18th hole was a great way to end the day. Will play this again.

A hidden gem in the Oakland Hills
The course is fun and challenging. The views of the bay area are spectacular. The pace of play is usually good. The only par 6 that I know of in the bay area.
Driving range is 6 iron and lower, so you can't practice with driver. There are brown patches with the drought, but enough green to keep people happy.
Lots of deer and turkeys to enjoy...

Great day at Lake Chabot course
Played with my wife and son Wednesday afternoon. Tee'd off at 2:20 and in the car at 6:15. Course is in good condition. Some obvious no watering spots due to drought but they were no in field of play.

Pretty good experience.
Staff is very friendly (reservation person, starter, food staff). . Course was in pretty good condition. Pace of play was lacking on the Friday I played. Would visit again.

Great round of golf
Played Lake Chabot for the third time yesterday. It was a week day (Monday), at about noon. The weather was spectacular...for the Bay area. 70s, and low humidity, with brilliant sun. I got an excellent rate through GolfNow. I was hooked up with three very nice men, which made the round even more enjoyable. We finished the round in less than 4 hours. Greens, fairways and tees were in good condition. The course is very hilly (a major understatement). I've walked it, and walking is quite an effort. There are several memorable holes. A par 3 with a MAJOR drop to the green. Had to drop down three clubs to avoid going long. And the par 6 18th is unique. All downhill (until 100 yds from the green, which is elevated), and visually stunning.
I didn't order any food, so I can't comment myself, but one of our group did, and said the food was very good.
I will certainly play there again.

If you do nit mind waiting until early after noon, Golfnow frequently have super offer for the 9 hole course. Short and challenging, not seeing other golfers around made for a great time with my wife!! She also had fun!
