I was born and raised in Tacoma, went to shool @ Lowell in old town, three blocks. from Old Tacoma Dock,( before living by the water was the "Vogue.")
Attended Lakewood Junior High, Graduated from Lincoln High in 1943, lived near and hunted rabbits where Mcord Airforce Base is now located, went to WWII. One year at Pacific Lutheran in Parkland, took up "Golf" there!
As a kid , spent a lot of time and learned to swim in commencement bay.
Watching the "Open," I thought I recognised, Browns Point across the Bay! I could be wrong, but looking at an area map; the course is actually about 45 miles from Seattle. From all the "Hype," I thouht the course was in Seattle, at my age I'm easilly confused!
But. watching the brodcast brought back a lot of nostalgic memories.



Growing up on Puget Sound, I took Amtrak Sea to Sac,, and a wonderful time, the train had tour guides all the way, actually on the other train Sac to Den too,,,,I was amazed and proud as we passed Chambers Bay, You can't really see it all from the train, I saw enough and the links is real golf too me, As I investigate to coarse for this playing of the US Open 2015, as the tour guide announced I have found how really cool this coarse is, One is Public, two the fans can see 13 holes from on spot, It is no. 1 @ green friendly, beautiful landscape, one can go down to Puget Sound beach for a break, and the rolls and that it is so Scottish, and in my home area, wow, it has the biggest grandstand ever, I'm sure some players will have some good and bad, but the bad is because they are uses to playing USA courses where you just hit the ball and spin it around the flag with wedges, I get tiered of the course that really are not that different, i my eye , watching putting all day long, you caught my drift, and last but not least, the answer my friends is the blowing in the winds on this course and of this brilliant selection BY the USGA, ,what fun, I would like to see the pro sweat more, and they will and if they take Chambers Bay without 10 plays, they will be like me looking for my ball in the rough,,,welcome to golf fans and all fans of US Open especially , to Pugetopolis



Beautiful links Scottish style course, lot of rolls, fan friendly



I left my heart in Seattle and am so happy a couple of days, (Fred Couples) and my home are, Pugetopolis Sound, will be Playing the 2015 Golf US open at south of Tacoma, Chambers Bay, how good is that,,,,



Scottshank must have played somewhere else. This is the most incredible course on the West Coast, and I have played them all. Bandon is ok, but not up to this level. If you can't handle the fescue, go to Bandon where the Poa is taking over. The greens are very tough, lots of slope, and frustrate some players, but they are a challenge. The US Amateur was here in 2010, and it produced some of the best play ever and the highest attendance ever. The US Open here will be wonderful and I predict this course stays in the top 50 in the US forever.

Not a fan of this course. This is an old gravel pit, too much elevation change, fescue grass always gives a tight lie and bad greens. Why the USGA selected this for a US Open is mind-boggling. Bandon and Pebble are the Major Leagues, this is Double A.


Was stationed at Ft.Lewis and love the Puget Sound. Didn't learn to play till after I left the Army.But it's defiantly one of the prettiest places in America.Just love it there!


Great course and while a great walk is not an easy walk - 1st time players should minimum hire a fore caddie for their group
Greens are vey undulating and treacherous,fairways very firm but trying to play sand wedges from 50 yards and in on such tight lies is nerve wracking
One point - this course is no where as lush green like they show in vids and pics - no complaint just an observation


This is a definite destination course, beautiful links style that is a challenge. Big elevation changes during the round and all walking - so be ready.
