I visited Chambers Bay Tuesday morning to see if my personal vision of the world-renowned golf course and park had been changed by some of the latest news and comments.
It is a wonderful golf course, and the park has great views and many uses for all local residents. Employees are helpful and engaging. I enjoyed a very nice lunch and a blustery walk around the vast and windswept acres that very enjoyable. First class!
I am quite pleased that the estimated sales tax revenue and other income that Pierce County has earned is healthy. But the course cannot pay its current bills, again. The golf course would be bankrupt if it were a privately held entity. The future of our “Ladenburg Links” seems promising only because residents pay their bills and thus enable Pierce County to bankroll the golf course. A very costly facility still.
