Chambers Bay 2015 U.S. Open host venue

Of the modern generation of American links golf courses, Chambers Bay is as authentic and thrilling as they come. Now a U.S.Open Championship venue, this wonderfully expansive layout is built in a large former gravel quarry. It sits directly alongside a railway (all the best links courses do!), overlooking the spectacular South Puget Sound. To the west, stunning sea and island views abound. Look the other way and the quarry reminders are clear to see.

The largely treeless layout weaves through towering dunes. Like most classic links courses, you play over constantly undulating terrain, best described as rugged and dramatic, rather than impeccably manicured. Miss the huge rolling greens by a few inches and your ball may be carried 50-yards away, courtesy of close-cropped and sometimes vast green surrounds. On the greens themselves, don't think for a moment that you'll routinely get down in two, or even three, or ... read more.  Chambers Bay's course map.

The "Golden Age" of retro-style links golf: Spectacular seaside "links" golf, on a daily-fee basis, has always been abundantly available to North Americans. The only problem was, that until the year 2000 it mainly involved a trip "across the pond" to Britain or Ireland. That all changed in just a few short years either side of Y2K. 

Kiawah's Ocean course (1991) may have been the trigger. But the recent "Golden Age" of retro-style links golf really took-off in 1998 with Whistling Straits, a "seaside" course that hugs the shoreline of mighty Lake Michigan.

On the other side of the lake, Arcadia Bluffs hit the scene in 1999, as did Bandon Dunes on the Pacific coast. In the mid-2000s, Erin Hills (admittedly not seaside, but could be!) and Chambers Bay kept the links treasures coming. More recently in 2012 Canada joined the party with Cabot Links.
No longer can the Brits and Irish boast a monopoly on spectacular seaside links golf (... for the daily-fee golfer), and no longer is Britain the only country where sheep trim the fairways.
