Physical changes done at host of ’15 US Open
For the first time in years, Matt Allen at Chambers Bay isn’t
explaining to golfers why a temporary green is being used or why a
path is blocked off for construction equipment.
All the physical changes are essentially complete at the
waterside links course that will become the first Pacific Northwest
golf course to ever host the U.S. Open when it comes here in 2015.
Allen, the general manager at Chambers Bay, feels a mix of relief
From the time that the course first opened in 2007 to how it
looks now wouldn’t be considered overly dramatic from a broad
perspective. But tucked inside those dunes are significant changes,
some learned when the course hosted the 2010 U.S. Amateur and some
learned in daily feedback from recreational golfers.
