Security

We had a nice round of golf, beautiful weather. However when we returned to the parking lot, the windows were smashed on 3 vehicles including one belonging to my gold partner. There should be better security for your guests.

Pretty good value

The course conditions have improved a little over the years. The driving range is way better than before! No amenities due to the pandemic. Play here if if you like scenic views and lots of hilly uneven lies.

;ale Chabot is a fun course

Lake Chabot is a fun course to play.
They have a few holes that are wonderful including # 18 which is a par 5!
The only negative was that we had to wait 30 minutes past our tee time because they did not have any carts available.

many people jump right in front of my chipping

Four people jumped in front of my game. One guy wanted to fight about him jumping in front of me.
I only played 9-10 holes... and just back to the clubhouse.
The club could not provide any adjustment but did say send GolfNow my issues.

Slow play, not enough carts

Too many groups of new players and zero Marshall guidance to move the play along. Also tee’d off 30 minutes late because they did not have enough carts.
The course itself is hilly, fun, and challenging on the sloping, fast greens. The views are great. We had a great time, just a much longer great time than usual.

Front 9 layout was good. 3 ot 4 holes in back 9 were ridiculous. No visibility of the flags. But for 18usd with cart ... best deal for the bucks

very good course

Lake Chabot is an excellent course. It has some very challenging holes and most holes are on steep hills. The course was in very good condition.
The greens especially were in good condition but very difficult because of the slope.
