We played Lake Chabot in less than 3.5 hours. The weather was great and the course was in good condition. The hills are challenging and beautiful and most holes have large up and downs. The price was fabulous. Even though this is 35 miles from my home we will go back!!

Well, it cost $10. Unbeknownst to us we booked our round on a par three course and a short one at that. I think it had one hole over 125 yards. Some of the greens were aerated and the tee boxes were so beat up they were 80% sand. Even a range matt would've been better than what we were left to play off. California has been through a drought the last few years so I'm sure the golf course market has been feeling that. The course also doubles as a frisbee golf course which was interesting. Wouldn't play again

This is a great and fun course. My only concern is on the day I played the course it was wet and muddy. There are several areas that do not drain well and it was plenty evident even though it had not rained for sever days before. Having played this course often, this was perhaps the worst I have seen it. So don't play it after a heavy rain!

So the weather has dried out at last and I decided to take out the sticks and got a 12:18 tee time and showed up a little late. No problem the staff was super friendly and got us out right away. This day was far from my best as I have not hit a ball in months and my mechanics were off all day. Conversely my partner who in notorious for erratic shots had his best day ever after the same layoff. This course is hilly and they still have several holes that are cart path only. the greens were nice and mostly recovered from a recent punching. The rough is pretty high and the fairways narrow and you can lose a lot of balls even if you see where they landed. The wind was mold today and weather perfect. This is a great time to take your game back out. I would suggest hitting a few times at the range first if you are coming off of a layoff.

Lake Chabot is an interesting course. It will always have it's great views, hills on every hole, raised tees and greens, and hidden fairways. The question has always been the condition of the course. Right now the fairways are in the best condition in years. The rains have been a big factor and I think maintenance has improved. But the greens and on course amenities need work to push this course over the top. However, Lake Chabot is, for the money, one of the best munis in the Bay and if you can handle the over 5 hour weekend round I would highly recommend you visit this course.

After rain storms, the course was somewhat wet, and the fairways needed mowing. But one should expect that after foul weather. This course is always enjoyable to play on, even with the bad conditions mentioned above. Staff is always courteous and friendly. Enjoyed the afternoon.

On a perfect picture day I brought my son to play this course thinking it'll be great golf with great weather, half of that came true, the other half was about as bad as it gets. Not only was the staff unfriendly, he went on to make me pay so much more than this course is worth! Then he tells me it "cart path" only! For a mountain course and at my age...that's a double negative, the course was in terrible condition!!! Any ball in rough is GONE!!, greens were lumpy and dirt filled. My son and I ended up finishing the round in 6 hours due to very, very slow play and the marshalls drive around telling everyone that's the way it goes!!!! No need to tell you whether I'll be returning to this place anytime soon......NO!!

This course should have been closed or green fees should have been significantly reduced. Most of the courses in the area have dried out with the few days of dry weather, but Lake Chabot has held a ton of water in the grass. This prevents the maintenance crews from being able to mow, resulting in lost balls in the middle of the fairway. Disappointing when you play well and still lose a dozen balls.

The reason for the poor condition was mostly due to the heavy rain that had been on going for weeks when I played and I think the reason for the fairway, rough, and greens not being cut in a couple of days. The staff was really nice but they did close the club house around 2 pm which was really disappointing. I will definitely go be going back to give it another play under better conditions.

We like playing Chabot and generally it offers a great value. However, after all the rain earlier in the month of February the course is extremely sloppy. Balls disappear in the fairway, rough is soupy, greens are very slow and slippery. It's too bad because I know they need the money, and it's very cheap to play-- but don't bring any light colored pants and be prepared to have your shoes caked with mud until the track dries out.
