6320 Grandview Dr W
University Place, WA 98467-1060

This public course (owned by the County of Pierce) will host the men's 2015 U.S. Open Championship. In preparation for that, the course hosted the men's 2010 U.S. Amateur Championship (Peter Uihlein def. David Chung). Since then, a number of changes to the course have begun. While the term "links-style" course is often misused in describing golf courses, Chambers Bay actually has these sorts of characteristics, thanks in part to the design by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. The course is also an Audubon-certified Signature Sanctuary.

The peak-season (June-September) rate here is $205, although club members, Pierce County residents, and Washington state residents receive various discounts.

amazing layout each hole is a challenge, greens need work which let me down for such an amazing coarse!

Take a caddie, Charles W was great, we both got into it. It's different than your traditional US courses.
  dominicfrank - 6/10/13
OK, so I cant see the US Open being a success here. Not exactly a hard course and there arent many places to put harder tees. Greens are true to links which means they are barely average to put on. The experience is worth the trip and the staff is top notch. View every step (no carts allowed) is worth paying 100 bucks just to walk the course. PLay this course !

Overall, this was an awesome course. Be prepared for a workout as this is a walking only course which led to some of the slow play.
  cgin - 5/2/13
Expensive to play except during winter months. Worth to play at least once in summer. Some holes have long uphill climbs and arduous for two of our foursome. Greens were not in best shape in March. Otherwise, definitely play it if you have a chance.

The potential is there, but not worth the $$$ yet.

Chambers Bay is pretty amazing as it is a unique links experience in America. The overall experience is fantastic - it is a great golf course. The 'pros' are all related to the broader golfing experience. The staff is also exceedingly friendly and helpful.

The main negatives to me are the pace of play (5+ hours), the cost, and the greens are right now in poor condition. They need to do something as they did not putt true both rounds I played within the last week.
