Challenging course with all the elevation throughout. Just keep it in the fairway and you can score, but any slice and you will bogey if lucky.

They have mowed the course recently so the fairways and rough are playing a little faster. We also felt the greens are in better shape and not as bumpy. There are still broken ball washers here and there and distance markers missing on many holes. However the course is still a pretty good value. And we love it when Carlotta’s cafe is open to serve good burgers and drinks..

Hit the wide fairways and you'll score well. I love playing the numbers 5, 6, 9, 10, 15 and 18 holes.

Grew up in east bay and have lost track on how many times I have played this course but it has great views and some very challenging holes especially if you play from blues. The conditions are decent for this time of the year and greens were better than most muni’s however my issue is with the staff. TOTALLY CLUELESS! It seems that no one is interested in making a good impression on so that maybe you want to come back. No coffee service inside, the attendant did a great of ignoring me so I just left. I signed for a cart to receive the key on a specific cart # only to see someone driving off with it. When I returned to explain what had happen they told me to grab cart # __ only to search and there was no cart by that #. The only staff member who seemed to enjoy what she was doing was at the snack shack, Carlotta, she gets it! Great dogs and very accommodating. 58$ w/ cart is tolerable but they need to treat guests as if they weren’t waking them up from their nap.

We played Lake Chabot in the Oakland Hills at

10:00 am and finished in about 5.5 hours.

Pace was slow due to a tournament which we

found out upon registering.

The course was in average/good condition, greens were mowed and fast, a combination of hillside fairways were hilly and some level.

Lots of trees, good views.

Spent 6 hours playing 14 holes- had to stop play twice to get a new golf cart because ours died. There was at one point a 3-4 party back up that continued throughout the day. No marshalls either to speed up the play.

Course wasn’t in great shape, tee boxes had a lot of dead grass.

Lake Chabot is a very interesting course. If you enjoy hills you will love this course.

The 9th hole is a fabulous par 3 and the 18th is a par 6 which is a ;lot of fun.
