The golf course with the richest major-championship pedigree in the Pacific Northwest will host another major this spring when the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship comes to the region.
It’s not Chambers Bay.
When the world’s best women pros come to Sahalee in suburban Seattle, it will be the third major hosted by the golf course many people thought should have been the first Northwest course to host a U.S. Open. Not Chambers Bay.
Sahalee hosted the PGA Championship in 1998 and the U.S. Senior Open in 2010. When you see Sahalee on your television set, it looks like a Northwest golf course. Not Chambers Bay.
Chambers Bay is a crazy-cool golf course, worthy of another major some day. It’s not Sahalee.
