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

Hole #1 at Chambers Bay (Puget Sound)
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.

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.
