I played the course where they're having the US Open — it's going to drive the pros nuts

A Look at Chambers Bay: US Open 2015

This week is the U.S. Open, the second "major" golf tournament of the year. Unlike in years past, this year's U.S. Open will not feature thick rough and narrow fairways. Instead, it will be played on a links-style course just outside of Seattle.

The course is called Chambers Bay, and it is going to drive the professionals crazy. The greens have wild undulations. The fairways have fescue grass, which is more coarse than the grass on traditional courses.

Chambers Bay is a links-style public course that was built in 2007 by Robert Trent Jones II. It was built on a former gravel mine. It's a seriously gorgeous golf course with jaw dropping views of the Puget Sound.

Here's an overview of the whole course from the restaurant at the top of the property. A shuttle takes you down to the driving range and the course. On the right is the par-5 eighth hole.

Here's one more overview (above). On the left, right in front, is the par-3 ninth hole.

Here's the awesome message inscribed on the range balls. More people should take this to heart. Playing the tips of a course is generally pointless, unless you're a single digit handicapper who booms drives.
