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

#14 at Chambers Bay
From chambersbaygolf.com - Hole 14 (Cape Fear)  From the elevated tees, this long downhill dogleg left looks to go forever. It almost does, at 530+ yards from the back tee this would be the longest par 4 in major championship history. And while length is a factor on this hole, the sheer beauty of the backdrop and strategy of the hole will dominate one's attention. The player has two options off the tee. A safe play to the right will yield a longer approach from an elevated perch. A risky tee shot over the large deep sandy area (affectionately known as the pit of despair) will leave a shorter more level approach that must carry another sandy area. The large green, surrounded by fairway, runs from front right to back left making a draw an ideal 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.
