Lake Chabot Golf Course - Oakland CA
The Works Progress Administration (WPA) improved and enlarged every hole at the Lake Chabot Municipal Golf Course, in conjunction with the City of Oakland Parks Department. The WPA workers also construction a two level parking area with stone walls.
It is an 18-hole course that serves a diverse population from Oakland, including many African American and Asian American golfers. A 36-hole disk (frisbee) course has been added in recent years.
One claim to fame for the course is that it served the young Tony Lema, an Oakland native, who was taught by the course pros and elder statesmen.
