With its jaw-dropping views of the San Francisco Bay and a Par 6 finishing hole that goes 667 straight downhill and sometimes reachable in two, Lake Chabot has something to offer golfers of all ages. Whether you’re planning a corporate outing, charity fundraiser or just a fun day of golf with friends, we pride ourselves on delivering flawlessly-executed golf tournaments and outings that exceeds all your expectations.
