Chambers Bay

I’ve been wanting to play the new Chambers Bay course near Tacoma since it opened a little over a year ago. It will be the site of several major tournaments in the future (including the 2015 U.S. Open) and I wanted to see what a top-level PGA course is like. We played 36 holes, using the first time through the get acquainted with the layout and greens. I improved each nine holes but was still was appropriately humbled shooting a 101 in the afternoon round. That said, I didn’t play as well as I have been lately and I managed a respectable 47 on the final nine with pars on three of the last ten holes. The greens are exceedingly difficult and I didn’t have a single one-putt hole. It was all still great fun on an exceptional fall day; I even got a little sunburn on the nose. Not bad for the middle of November. And the views are tremendous.
