No grass on the tee's and all the greens were pockmarked. Looked like the only hole the ground crew paid any attention to was the 9th.

This course, hidden up behind the Oakland Zoo offers a decent round of golf, great views and a few challenges. No water or lakes to worry about, and few sand traps. Just many ups and downs along the way.

Lake Chabot is in the Oakland hills, and as a result has incredible views, & natural settings hard to imagine in an urban area. The hills also guarantee that although not particularly long, the lack of level "lies" more than compensates for distance and challenges...More
