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

Hole #18 at Chambers Bay
From - 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.
