  9. Australian golfer Clint Rice was kicked off the Chambers Bay course during a practice round ahead of this week's US Open. June 17 2015 Australian golfer Clint Rice had his clubs confiscated while attempting a US Open practice round. Ranked No 1188 in the world, Rice is one of the top alternates - reserves - for this week's Open after shooting 66-69 in qualifying in Ohio, and he was informally told he'd be able to play a practice round on the Chambers Bay course. But after playing four holes with 2006 US Open champion and fellow Aussie Geoff Ogilvy on Tuesday, a USGA official approached Rice and politely, but immediately, stopped him from playing. His clubs were taken away and the 34-year-old Tasmanian was left to walk the final five holes of the nine he'd intended to play in conversation only with Ogilvy. USGA rules state that alternates can use all the practice facilities, but are not allowed to play on the course proper. A USGA official later confirmed Rice had been previously given a document which stated that he had no playing privileges. Ogilvy said he understood the USGA rules, but that the incident was a shame. "It's a bit silly if you're not holding anybody up or interfering with their practice," Ogilvy said. "I'd get it if there were no spots available for players in the field. But this wasn't the case here. "I was playing on my own in the afternoon and he just asked if he could play with me and, of course, I said yes. "I get where the USGA is coming from, but surely the top few alternates should be able to play. "What happens if he gets in on Thursday and hasn't seen the course? He effectively has his chances limited. "It's a shame because we were having a good time and he seemed like a really good bloke. Rice didn't comment on the matter.
  10. [quote name='DrunkenTiger' timestamp='1434547821' post='11768184'] only 3 pages? [/quote] this course is a mystery so i'm not sure we know what to say or think of it yet until it gets "unveiled" tomorrow.....i'm sure the usga is loving the options they have to keep the players guessing

  12. [url="http://www.chambersbaygolf.com/us-open/making-a-champion/"][b]"Making A Champion: Chambers Bay"[/b][/url] [i]The Story Behind Chambers Bay[/i] How does an unused sand quarry in Pierce County, Washington magically transform into not only one of the country’s finest examples of traditional links golf, but the host of a U.S. Open—with the championship awarded only eight months after opening? As implausible as it may sound, the story of how Chambers Bay came to host the 2015 U.S. Open is as unique as the course itself. As part of a reclamation master planning process for the site of a 610-acre former sand and gravel quarry, Pierce County determined that a municipal golf course, incorporated with open parkland space, beach access and walking trails, would be the best use of the public land. However, rather than try to compete with the many existing, good-quality regional courses, the County envisioned a world-class course that would attract players from around the country and perhaps, one day, provide the opportunity to host a major championship event. “One day” would prove to be sooner than any one could have ever imagined. Partnering with the design firm of Robert Trent Jones II, Pierce County gave the architects a blank canvas and a mission: build a course worthy of the site’s captivating scenery and of the very best players in the world. At this same time, the USGA was eagerly seeking to hold a U.S. Open in Washington, a state that has never hosted golf’s toughest major. By working closely with the USGA from the first shovel of sand, Pierce County created a course that was tailored to their highest standards. As a result, Chambers Bay will be just the third municipal course to host a U.S. Open, and the youngest to host a U.S. Open in almost 30 years. With its natural sand, proximity to Puget Sound and a climate reminiscent of the birthplace of the game, a traditional links-style design evocative of the great Scottish courses was chosen for Chambers Bay. The decision to make the course walking-only freed it from cart paths, opening up its dimensions to match the grand scale of the property. Features like a 70-foot tall sand dune covering seven acres, fairways the width of a football field and 60-foot long tees make this a dramatic course, with elevation changes, bunkers and greens providing character and playability. Chambers Bay may be the closest recreation of a Scottish linksland course this side of the Atlantic, giving the 2015 U.S. Open a look and style of play more like that of a British Open than the traditional East Coast country club courses of past U.S. Opens. Because they didn’t need to worry about traffic wear from carts, the team was able to use fescue grass from tee to green. In addition to providing a fast, firm surface that is fun to play, fescue’s deep roots make it incredibly drought tolerant, able to go days without supplemental watering. The choice of grass was just one of Pierce County’s many commitments to protecting the environment. The earthmoving was accomplished in the most environmentally responsible way possible, while drainage systems were installed that lead to sediment retaining ponds, bioswales and filtration basins for natural filtration by plants and soil. Nothing flows off the site or into the ground water. This commitment to sustainable building and maintenance led Chambers Bay to be certified as a Silver Signature Sanctuary by Audubon International, the first golf course in the Northwest to receive such recognition. With its limited use of water and minimalist maintenance philosophy, Chambers Bay is a poster child for sustainable golf. While the USGA chose the course primarily as a challenging test for the world’s greatest golfers, Chambers Bay will also help set an example of the USGA’s “brown is the new green” ethos, encouraging other courses to move away from lush but water-intensive landscaping that is increasingly becoming untenable in communities facing competing demands for water, particularly in the water-starved Southwest.
  13. [quote name='vmatt' timestamp='1434465201' post='11761406'] Beautiful pictures but the course will not be as pleasing to watch this weekend. Fairways and greens are pretty much brown. For gents who are going to watch it live, Wear shoes that suits trail running. [/quote] usga reps have been talking about their water conservation efforts and minimalist approach with resources.....we surely saw that last year at pinehurst but i like it and doesn't bother me visually. to play it would be even more fun with such quirky charachteristics versus the norm of cookie cutters tracks
