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.

Newaukam Valley will challenge you while providing a relaxing, picturesque backdrop. The South Nine is the first of two “valley” golf courses, and it challenges even the best golfer with a mix of rolling hills, large trees and well-placed bunkers. The river intimidates the straightest of drivers and has been known to force a club change or two. The East Nine is the second of the two “valley” golf courses, and plays slightly more forgiving, but don’t let the wide fairways and large greens deceive you. Numerous out-of-bounds threats wait to claim tee shots. The West Nine is the shortest but most deceptive of the three golf courses. Playing at a par 33, its challenges are often overlooked. There is no room for error with large trees lining nearly every fairway, eager to obstruct a wayward tee shot. Newaukam Valley offers chipping and putting areas and is the perfect place to improve your short game. The golf course also features a driving range.
