“Chabot Golf Club” was a name I picked out of the air, based on our long history to the area, and Lake Chabot Golf Course in particular, but if folks like/prefer another name, it’s certainly open for discussion. Club members in good standing (rules determining what “good standing” means are TBD) are free to submit their club name preferences for a vote.
Chabot in History
Anthony Chabot (1813-1888) known as the Water King, owned the company that built the San Leandro Creek Dam, creating Lake Chabot in 1870. Earlier, he built San Francisco’s first public water system, and built water systems for other cities including Vallejo, San Jose, Portland MN, and Milwaukee WI. He used his wealth to great philanthropic causes including housing for veterans in Yountville. Whether Mr. Chabot played golf isn’t mentioned on Wikipedia.
