Welcome to Chambers Bay, Washington State’s golf masterpiece – a unique tribute to the historic links of Scotland and Ireland. With Puget Sound providing a serene backdrop to Chambers Bay, this breathtaking layout winds through a stunning coastal setting, among windswept dunes and native fescue grasses. The snow-capped Olympic Mountains rim the western shore and eagles keep silent watch overhead. In every sense, Robert Trent Jones II has created an awe-inspiring design that is as spectacular as the beauty surrounding it.

This Washington state golf course is home to the 2015 U.S. Open and 2010 U.S. Amateur Championships and is conveniently located just outside of Tacoma, in Pierce County. Less than an hour’s drive South from Seattle, this 18 hole championship golf course provides a traditional, links-style layout featuring impressive emerald greens, dazzling fairways, and brilliant tees.

Beautiful Course, Beautiful Views This is by far the most stunning course I have seen/played. The views are spectacular and the course is equally impressive. The greens are firm and fast. I agree with the other review about hiring a caddie, as there are too many nuances for a first time player. I second the dressing in layers as the weather in WA can change quite quickly. When you step onto the property, you are greeted with a fantastic view looking down over the quarry and the Puget Sound with the lone tree perched near the water. The course looks even more intimidating from above but it's most certainly worth it! February 14, 2014
Tough, Tricky, But Ultimately Memorable I'm surprised no one has written a review of Chambers Bay yet, especially because of its reputation for being a special golfing experience. Of course, a lot of average golfers have told me they are intimidated by Chambers Bay's reputation as a demanding, physically-punishing course, not to mention the perception that the exorbitant greens fees require taking out a second mortgage. I certainly shared that impression before I played my first round there in 2010, even after volunteering at the U.S. Amateur Championship earlier that year. As a mid-to-high handicap golfer who returned to the game after a long layoff, I expected a "beat down" from this links-style course. My experience turned out to be just the opposite. Here are some tips to help make your Chambers Bay debut more enjoyable: 1. First timers will definitely benefit from hiring a caddie. The crew at Chambers Bay are talented, courteous, and knowledgeable. Not only will a caddie help you save about 10 strokes over your round, he'll make the loop a lot less physically tiring as well. 2. Take advantage of the included warm-up time at the range; it'll help get you accustomed to the firm greens and fairways, plus acclimated to that day's weather conditions, which usually includes wind gusts. 3. Dress in layers, and appropriately for the weather. Walking 18 holes here is closer to hiking in the mountains than a stroll in the park, so rugged, comfortable golf shoes are not optional! Above all, have fun! The views are fantastic, and when you drop your tee shot just right on #9, watching it roll down next to the hole, you'll be jazzed beyond belief. June 18, 2013
