Oakland Golf Course Details at Lake Chabot Golf Course
This is the Oakland Public Golf Course you must play to believe!
"Holes 15 through 18 have magnificent views. From 15 you get a breathtaking look at downtown Oakland, the Bay Bridge and San Francisco. Flip side is that it is 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."
"No. 18 is one of the best finishing holes I have ever played. A 600-yard (673) par 6. That's right, I said par 6; apparently one of the last ones around. Read the plaque to the left of the tee box before you tee off. It commemorates the long-time superintendent of the course, Joseph Guisto, and his long-drive supremacy. This is where you give back all of the altitude you have gained; 18 is straight downhill."
