Chambers Bay

Tacoma, Washington

A stunning and unique modern links on Puget Sound


Famously, many pros did not care for Chambers Bay when they played the 2015 US Open there. Ignore them. This is flat out one of the most scenic, wild and fun courses you can play in America. Elements of Chambers Bay feel distinctly British. Yet, it’s a brawny brute that climbs – and falls – some truly massive hills, giving it a unique feel for a links course. There are huge dunes, extensive waste areas and even an active rail line bordering several holes. This is such a wonderful modern American take on a classic links course, and it’s a total bucket list experience.
