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

#5 at Chambers Bay
From chambersbaygolf.com - Hole 5 (Free Fall) – The fifth hole at Chambers Bay offers the first panoramic perspective on the course. From the tee, the player can see virtually the entire course, as well as Puget Sound, the Olympic Mountains and McNeil, Anderson, and Fox Islands and most importantly both greens at the fifth. While some other famed courses have holes with two greens on one hole (Pine Valley / Ballybunion Cashen / Pacific Dunes), the fifth at Chambers Bay is unique because the greens are 150 yards apart. The teeshot at the fifth plays downhill some 80 feet to a very wide fairway. From there the player is left with a long iron to the open “long green” or a delicate pitch to the protected “short” green. In both instances, players are wise to use the ground contours around the green to guide their ball towards the hole. - 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.
