Much like the beloved links courses of Scotland and Ireland, Chambers Bay allows for creative shot making—particularly along the ground. Many holes invite players to choose among various routes from tee to green. Risk/reward opportunities abound, though wide fairways welcome all golfers to swing away. As Robert Trent Jones, Jr. says, "You can play more options at Chambers Bay than at the Chicago Futures Market." No housing mars the purity of the golf holes, and as Chambers Bay is a continuously turfed, walking-only venue, no cart paths intrude upon the natural look.
