Washington Golf Courses and Packages
Located just outside of Tacoma. This coastal links-style course faces Puget Sound and was designed by Robert Trent Jones II. It was built on a site of a former sand and gravel mine making a perfect medium upon which to build a golf course. It opened in 2007 and will host the 2015 U.S. Open Championship. There are no carts allowed on the course unless you have a doctorâ€™s note so be prepared to walk. Depending on when you plan to do a Washington golf trip, Chambers Bay may not be easily accessible in preparations for the U.S. Open.
