Host of the 2015 U.S. Open, Chambers Bay Golf Course in University Place, Washington, is one of the best public golf courses in the United States. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., Chambers Bay is a glorious ode to the historic links courses of Scotland and Ireland and is one of the few true links golf courses in North America. Constructed on the sand dunes bordering the Puget Sound with seaside fescue and a wide open layout, Chambers Bay checks all the boxes of a true links course with one notable exception: the Lone Fir. Located on the signature 15th hole at Chambers Bay is the Lone Fir, the iconic fir tree that Robert Trent Jones decided to keep in the layout despite the risk of preventing the course to be considered a true links course. Along with magnificent views of the Puget Sound, the snow-capped Olympic Mountains can be spotted at various points on the 7,585-yard layout at Chambers Bay. With PGA TOUR history throughout its true-links layout, Chambers Bay is a must play for golfers who want to walk in the footsteps of golf’s greats and feel what it’s like to play at a US Open venue.
