Take full advantage of the chance to play next year’s US Open venue before the professionals
EVERY golfer will have a list of courses they want to play in their lifetime. What’s more, every golfer will also have a list of events and courses they want to see in their lifetime. Now is your chance to see one of golf’s four biggest tournaments up close and personal as it heads to Chambers Bay, Tacoma in 2015.
Having already hosted the 2010 US Amateur Championship - won by 2013 European Tour ‘Rookie of the Year’ Peter Uihlein - there is no douting Chambers Bay’s championship pedigree, with the spectacular beauty of the snow-capped Olympic Mountains surrounds the Robert Trent Jones II design making it as pleasurable on the eye as it is to play.
Its links-style is set to welcome the world’s best golfers, including defending champion Martin Kaymer, in June 2015 and you could be one of the estimated 235,000 people to attend the competition.
Built as a unique tribute to links courses found in Scotland and Ireland, its layout runs along the coast with some stunning scenery greeting players along many of the holes.
It’s one for the purists, too, with it being strictly a ‘walking only’ course. If you prefer to make your way round in the comfort of a buggy, this isn’t the place for you.
Just a 20-minute drive from Tacoma and about an hour from Seattle, you can already plan your stay and the trip of a lifetime to watch the US Open.
Alternatively, you can take full advantage of the fantastic stay and play packages on offer that will let you see what the likes of Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy will face when they arrive next June at the Washington State venue.
