What a view!!!
Course was very nicely placed and on 15th hole, it was such a nice view of Oakland as other mentioned.
Some course had narrow fairway which needs control over distance. Down hill par 3, 9th hole..gotta consider drop and wind which was a fun hole.
I like the course...wish I could get more discount to play and for Vehicle to pass by for parking and leaving be caution.

Strange set up, but fun course
This is a course where the yardage means almost nothing. There is so much change in elevation you will be guessing how much longer shorter each shot plays. Very unique course especially with the finishing par 6 ( that is amazingly downhill, I hit a 4 hybrid almost 300 yds into the group in front of us... sorry guys!).
Course was in good shape except for no one seems to fix their ball marks on the greens!
Pace of play was OK, in that the course is only 6000 yds and it still took about 4:30 to play.
Fun times had, and would play there again.

Great course, great price
Lake Chabot is a very fun course.
Lots of hills and small greens. The par 6, 18th has the potential to be a card-wrecker. Aim for the center of the fairway and let it roll!

Great Course! No Marshal and NO amenities!
My buddies and I go there 4 times a year. We live in SF so it's a little bit of a trek. We generally like the course including the par 6 but not much else. People constantly ask if they can skip holes ahead of you (not due to pace of play) but because they wanna play the par 6. Understandable but we generally play a 4 hour round here. Also during the game the snack shop closes at 2 or before, there is no bartender in the clubhouse after 4:30 or shes to busy making burgers for a first tee like program, we didn't see one marshal the whole time, and saw a twosome of buddies that wanted to play through with some sort of professional photographer actually drive a cart onto the 16th green! Need I say more?

Lake Chabot is possibly the best value for weekend golf, in the Bay Area. The course is in decent condition with some fun and quirky holes. Pace of play is slow on weekends, of course, but speedy during the week. It offers some terrific views of the Bay, from a few holes on the back nine. The snack shack offers one of the best burgers in the Bay Area!

Love Lake Chabot, however the pace of play on Sunday was pretty slow and the group behind us wasn't giving us any privacy around the tee box or on the fairway as they continually hit their tee shots while we were within range.

challenges of distance
This course was very hilly. It was hard to judge distances. It didn't have makers beyond 150. The greens were flat and slow. The tee boxes were not level. It was very green though and the staff was courtious. There wasn't a Marshall so the pace of play was very bad. A twosome in front of me was holding up myself and two other foursomes...very rude. All in all the course was nice but the others players didn't even know how to hit the ball and had no clue about etiquette...cut off shorts and tee shirts as well. Probably won't make the trip again...sorry chabot
