Chambers Bay golf course, site of the 2015 U.S. Open Championship, is the anchor of Pierce County’s 930-acre reclamation and economic development plan for Chambers Creek Regional Park, a historic waterfront location with a long history of industrial use as a gravel mine. The nationally recognized redevelopment plan balanced the county’s multiple needs at the site for public access, a waste water treatment plant and revenue generation, while capitalizing on the site’s breathtaking location at the edge of Puget Sound.
Our work at Chambers Bay began 14 years ago as part of the Environmental Impact Statement team. In addition to completing the “Earth” section of the project Environmental Impact Statement, we have helped Pierce County turn the industrial site into a flourishing recreational area through the following work:
Today Chambers Creek Regional Park is a bustling recreation area beloved by both local residents and tourists, and home to successful businesses. Audubon International has designated Chambers Bay golf course as a Certified Silver Audubon Signature Sanctuary based on the results of our surface water and sediment testing. The golf course is also the first in the Pacific Northwest to be chosen for the U.S. Open Championship.
