Best Place to Score a Triple Eagle 

Lake Chabot Golf Course

You want bragging rights at the 19th hole? Try taking on a challenge that would cause PGA pros to run for their golf carts or go crying to their caddies. Oakland's Lake Chabot course finishes up with one of the nation's few par-6 holes. Number 18 is a 673-yard monster that is so long you practically have to cross the street to finish. The links have both a regulation course and a 9-hole pitch-and-putt loop that will get you in shape to face a fairway that Tiger Woods might reach in 2. That's not the only claim to fame for this local landmark. Lake Chabot is where history happens, too. In operation since 1923, the course is also home to the city's annual championship, this year hosting the 87th annual tournament. It's easy to join up with a group if you're golfing solo, too. Just make sure that you bring enough club to finish up strong, otherwise you may be out there a while. Come to think of it, that's not such a bad thing either.
