Re: “Chambers Bay still in red figures” (TNT, 1-2).
I am a 74-year-old avid golfer. I have never played Chambers Bay, and I never will.
Why? It appears that Pierce County has chosen to continue to lose money while only allowing walkers to use the course. I have to assume the golfers that walk did not foot the total bill for the course construction.
I have talked to many, many golfers who have played the course, and they say that it is a tough course to have to walk – and these were the young ones.
The county has virtually eliminated half the golfers who can’t or won’t walk the course. I think the county has forgotten this is a public course. So let the public play it by either walking or riding.
