#2 at Chambers Bay Golf Course - Location of the 2015 U.S. Open Tournament

#2 at Chambers Bay Golf Course
From chambersbaygolf.com - Hole 2 (Foxy) – The 421 yard second hole heads due north and doglegs slightly from right to left. The hole starts in the dunes and opens to Puget Sound at the landing area. A small hummock bisecting the fairway landing area will direct balls right or left. The approach from the right is open and favors a running draw, while the left will require an aerial approach over a greenside sandy area. The green slopes gently from right to left and features a dramatic back left hole location.

Chambers Bay Golf Course is located in University Place, Washington. Opened in 2007, Chambers Bay is a pure links golf course, with beautiful panoramic views of the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains. Future site of the 2015 U.S. Open golf tournament. A few years ago, Golf Digest and Golf Magazine recognize it as the best new course in the country.

#1 at Chambers Bay Golf Course - Location of the 2015 U.S. Open Tournament

#1 at Chambers Bay Golf Course
From chambersbaygolf.com - Hole 1 (Puget Sound) The first hole at Chambers Bay sets the tone for the entire round. This long, challenging opener heads straight to Puget Sound, just as a first time visitor would have walked the site prior to the golf construction. If the breathtaking backdrop of Puget Sound doesn't capture your attention, the bold fairway contours and devilish green sure will. Flanked by a 50 ft tall dune on the right, the first hole shares a fairway with the 18th ala The Old Course at St. Andrew's. The right side of the fairway is elevated and offers an open entrance to the green. Playing down the left side will require players to negotiate a steep fairway hollow left of the green.

#18 At Chambers Bay Golf Course - Location Of The 2015 U.S. Open Tournament


Hole #18 at Chambers Bay
From chambersbaygolf.com - Hole 18 (Tahoma) – The home hole at Chambers Bay heads back east from the Sound. This long uphill hole will require a big decision to close the round. The tee shot is played over a shallow sandy area and along side the 40 ft concrete structures known as “the sorting bins.” The generous fairway is shared with the first hole but in order to reach the green in two a long tee shot down the right side is required. From there a player can lay up short left of the green or attempt a bold approach over a deep fronting sandy area. The vast green features some of the boldest contours on the course requiring pitch shots to either be executed perfectly or the need for some imagination and creative shot making. A large dune along the right side of the hole was designed and created to accommodate major tents and bleachers allowing tens of thousands of spectators to witness the finale of any championship.

#17 At Chambers Bay Golf Course - Location Of The 2015 U.s. Open Championship

#17 at Chambers Bay
From chambersbaygolf.com - Hole 17 (Derailed)  Just as the fifth hole featured two different greens, the seventeenth features two different tee locations. The lower tee is some 220 yards from the green and only offers a partial view of the hole. A steep dune on the left and a low sandy area along the right dominate the picture. A shorter elevated tee offers a completely different perspective. Looking down upon the surface and with full view of the left side bailout, players may choose a different route to the green. The green is engulfed by a sandy waste area short and right but is open long and left. The right hand hole location will not only test ones putting but actually brings the railroad (OB) into play. - Chambers Bay Golf Course is located in University Place, Washington.  Opened in 2007, Chambers Bay is a pure links golf course, with beautiful panoramic views of the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains.  Future site of the 2015 U.S. Open golf tournament.  A few years ago, Golf Digest and Golf Magazine recognize it as the best new course in the country.

#16 at Chambers Bay Golf Course - Location of the 2015 U.S. Open Tournament

#16 at Chambers Bay Golf Course
From chambersbaygolf.com - Hole 16 (Beached) While many of the holes at Chambers Bay have played towards the water, the sixteenth holes plays along the water. The right edge of the fairway perilously hanging over the edge of deep sandy area will entice players to bite off as much as possible. While the ample left side of the fairway may be the wiser play. From the left a player will be forced to find a small green that appears to be hanging over the water while avoiding the deep bunker to the right. A small finger of green in the back right is sure to make for an exciting championship hole location. - Chambers Bay Golf Course is located in University Place, Washington.  Opened in 2007, Chambers Bay is a pure links golf course, with beautiful panoramic views of the Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains.  Future site of the 2015 U.S. Open golf tournament.  A few years ago, Golf Digest and Golf Magazine recognize it as the best new course in the country.
