Detailed description

Lake Chabot Municipal Golf Course -Regulation, is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Oakland, California.

Lake Chabot Golf Course first opened for play in 1923. The course was designed by Willie Loch.

Lake Chabot Golf Course plays to a par of 72 and a maximum distance of 6,102 yards for a course rating of 69.4 and a slope rating of 123.

The course has lots and lots of hills. Several holes run parallel and cross a deep valley. There are a few wide open fairways, but most are well protected by trees - a test of your ability to drive straight. Holes 9 & 18 are unique in their length. 9 is a par 3, 150 with a 100' DROP. The green looks like a tea cup! The 18th is a 600 yard PAR 6 that is reachable in 2 The hole can be all down hill if hit correctly.

Holes 15 through 18 have magnificent views. From 15 you get a great look at downtown Oakland, the Bay Bridge and San Francisco. However, be forwarned that some consider this the ultimate sucker hole. Only 259 from the blues and 245 from the whites, everyone pulls out the driver at least once to take a shot. No problem. Just don't pull it, or you end up somewhere on the 16th fairway, and very O.B. Oh, and don't slice, or you might as well be in the bay. A great risk-reward hole.

# 18 is a monster finishing hole. It is a 600 yard (673) par 6. That's right, I said par 6. This is where you give back all of the altitude you have gained, 18 is straight downhill.
