Hole 1 (Puget Sound) While designed to be played as both par 4 and par 5 during the U.S. Open, the opening hole at Chambers Bay is a welcoming par 5 that provides a very manageable start to the round. Most tee shots will finish short of the crest of the hill in the fairway, leaving a partially blind second shot. Approach shots must favor the right side and can utilize the contours along that side of the fairway to find the putting surface.

PUGET SOUND: The first hole is named after perhaps the most important element of the site, Puget Sound. Like the North Sea at The Old Course or the Pacific Ocean at Cypress Point, Puget Sound provides a stunning backdrop to the golf and highlights the sense of place. Just hearing the name Puget Sound conjures images of beauty and grandeur. We hope players will feel the same way about Chambers Bay.
