World tunes in to Chambers Bay

News about the 2010 U.S. Amateur and 2015 U.S. Open coming to
Chambers Bay Golf Course in University Place broke Feb. 8. Needless to
say, stories about the appointment have circulated throughout the golf
world.

Here is The News Tribune’s virtual-tour link on Chambers Bay when the course opened in June of 2007.

GolfWorld certainly liked the USGA’s decision to come to Chambers Bay, as does Golf Digest. TravelGolf.com said it’s the golfers who don’t mind traveling to play a U.S. Open site that benefit.

Other U.S. newspapers have also chimed in. The San Diego Union-Tribune hadn’t even heard of its West Coast, public-venue brother from up north, but comments on the choice. The Detroit Free-Press says show this “muni” the money.
