With the 2015 Masters Tournament in the books and the U.S. Open coming up sooner than we think, tour pros and media are now in Chambers Bay mode. Chambers Bay is the location of the 2015 U.S. Open. Some players and caddies are now playing “recon” rounds at the course, and media are starting to post their Chambers Bay material.
That said, I thought it would be a good time to remind any HOG readers that I have a gallery of some Chambers Bay photos for those who are wondering what the course looks like.
Foolish folks are calling Chambers Bay “America’s St Andrews.” This is about as dumb a statement as I’ve ever heard or read. First, St Andrews is a town in Scotland, not a golf course. Are these pundits saying that Chambers Bay golf course is America’s version of a town in Scotland? I believe the comparison they are trying to make is between St Andrews and the OLD COURSE, which is IN St Andrews. Having spent much time on both courses I must say the two are hardly similar. In fact they’re more dissimilar than they are similar. If I had to compare Chambers Bay to a course in or near St Andrews I would compare it to the Castle Course, but even that is a stretch.
Click the photo above or the following link for more Chambers Bay pictures. I have a bunch more I’ll try to dig up and post later.
