Aeration and someone stole...

The course was being aerated and had to plAy the back nine twice. This information should have been disclosed on TeeOff website. Also, my ball retriever was stolen from my bag when I went to the restroom before my round started. Sad that a fellow golfer would steal, but at least the important items remained.

Misinformation

Had to play back nine twice, due to aerating, which was not annotated,on golfnow.com .
This Course has significantly raised it's fees, while the Course and it's management has tumbled to all time lows.

Thank you for your review! We apologize that you were not aware of our recent aerification. Not having notes on golfnow.com was an oversight on our part, as we made sure to post on our social pages as well as send out emails regarding our upcoming aerification. We sincerely apologize and will make sure to address this for future aerification dates. Thank you again and we hope you'll give us another try in the future.

Good course with some great holes

Lake Chabot is a very hilly course.
It is one of the few I use a cart.
The 9th hole is a par 3 of about 140 yards that goes down hill greatly and you can barely see the green when you hit.
My favorite hole is the 18th which is a par 6 mostly downhill.
There are some difficult holes but most are challenging but fun.

Good course with unusual holes

Lake Chabot is a fun course with many hills some steep.
The 18th hole is a wonderful par 6 over 600 yards.
The ninth hole is a par 3 that drops down a huge amount and you cannot see the flag when you hit.
It is not easy but fun.

Interesting layout and very hilly

The course is not overly long but the hilly slopes and small greens is challenging enough. There isn't one hole where it is flat from tee to green and you must carry your shots the full distance unless going downhill. You also need to know where to place your shots as there are also fairways sloping sideways. It is a fun course for non-beginners, bring extra balls and walking not recommended unless you're in tip-top shape.

Common, for the price let’s start making some improvements

The grass around many of the greens isn’t grass, it’s weeds, or dirt or wood chips.

Some of the greens are pretty old school small so the area around the greens should be worked on constantly. Plant grass, water, kill the weed. Whatever.

Do something to make the course better.

What’s the point of having a Marshall if they don’t push pace of play.

Thank you for your review! We are hard at work improving the conditions of the golf course. We are sure if you were to return soon, you would be able to see the enhancements to the turf. We're surprised to hear that pace of play may have been slowed. Our expanded tee times and single rider cart policy has reinforced our 4 – 4.5 hour golf round timing. If you have any other feedback, please do not hesitate to contact our General Manager, Ray Robinson, directly at ray@lakechabotgolf.com.

Patchy

The course is a fun one to play. Very hilly and challenging but theres not a lot of grass. They say they are conserving or not using water I dont know the exact wording. But if you're not going to spend the money on water and put grass down maybe a golf course wasnt the right thing to put there. I'd play again if I randomly happen to be that far out in oakland again. But wont travel that far again for it.

California Wildfire Weather

I had booked a tee time for 3 people at 11:20 AM. Im sure youve heard about California and its wildfires and what its done to our air and sky. The weather was so bad that morning and our sky was so orange my buddies and I decide to cancel our round due to the unhealthy air quality and the sky being so orange couldnt even see a golf ball. I didnt realize though it was a pre paid round. If we actually would have went and played then it wouldnt bother me . But i was writing this email on the return of my money for the round 150$. Mind you we never even went because the air was so bad couldnt breath. Ive spent alot of money on this app. I just hope you guys could make this right for a valued customer . Thanks Stay safe and healthy.

Thank you for your review! We completely understand why you would want to cancel your round due to the air quality recently. Since this is a pre-paid tee time, you'd need to contact GolfNow directly. We've checked with GolfNow and it looks as though you already got in touch with them and your refund is expected in 3-5 business days. We're glad that everything was resolved and we hope to have you out on the course once you feel it is a bit safer.

A really fun municipal course. Pace of play is always good. Very hilly but in a way that is not too challenging. Always a fun round.
