Hole #9 - Olympus - at Chambers Bay

Hole #9 at Chambers Bay

From chambersbaygolf.com - Hole 9 (Olympus)  The ninth at Chambers Bay, like the fifth, offers a panoramic view of the course, Puget Sound, the islands and the Olympic Mountains. The hole drops almost 100 feet from the back tee to a peninsula green surrounded by deep sandy areas. The wise play here is to use the fairway short and left as it slopes sharply to the green. Because of the high quality of the sand that was present in this area of the site, the area between the tees and green was excavated creating the heroic carry to the green. The sand that was excavated from this area was then screened and placed at 12 inch depth over the entire course prior to grassing.  - 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.
