Chambers Bay – a championship experience that every golfer can enjoy

Spanning more than 950 scenic acres along the expansive shoreline of Puget Sound, Chambers Bay offers a golf experience unlike any other in the Northwest.

Some of the game’s great championships have been decided on these fairways and greens—from the 2010 U.S. Amateur to the 2015 U.S. Open to the 2021 U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship which took place this May.

When Chambers Bay welcomes the U.S. Women’s Amateur in 2022 it will become one of just 15 courses to hold all three of the USGA’s original championships.

Moreover, it will be the first municipal course to hold them and only the third course open to the public, joining resorts Pebble Beach and Pinehurst.

Yet while the 18-hole, walking-only course in University Place, Wash. challenges the world’s best golfers, it was designed to provide an authentic links experience for players of every ability.

Golfers can still find space on the tee sheet to experience the championship-caliber course for themselves as well as creative packages designed for their interests.

The Championship Experience package features rounds at three area USGA championship courses—Chambers Bay, The Home Course, and Gold Mountain—along with two night’s lodging at Hotel Murano.

Chambers Bay Buddies Trip packages can be designed to feature golf, dining, lodging, and adventure for groups of 12 or more.

No matter how a trip is planned, it is certain to be unforgettable, thanks in no small part to the remarkable landscape that waits to welcome you.

This landscape provided the ideal medium upon which to build a true links course. From the start, the design challenge for Chambers Bay was simple yet formidable: Architect Robert Trent Jones II was asked to create a world-class course, enjoyable for golfers of any skill level, yet capable of hosting major championships. His achievement would result in one of golf’s great experiences.

The traditionalist can appreciate the near mystical quality that comes with playing a links course like this. Taking in the game’s highs and lows with those closest to you while traversing tawny fescue grasses, rugged sand dunes, and natural seaside beauty sets links golf apart from its inland cousin. These elements, combined with breathtaking views of Puget Sound and the snow-capped Olympic Mountains, create a sense of nirvana for players of Chambers Bay. Designed to encourage imaginative and creative shot-making, there is no “line of play” but rather an infinite number of strategies from tee to green that will get the player around the course successfully.

This award-winning course possesses all the attributes of the world’s most storied golf links, and now is your opportunity to experience every breathtaking yard of it.

It’s not too late to secure your tee time or take advantage of The Championship Experience and Buddies Trip packages. To book your trip or learn more about Chambers Bay, visit
