Pierce County residents with questions about the 2015 U.S. Open Championship at Chambers Bay are invited to attend an in-district meeting of the Pierce County Council on Thurs., June 27. The meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. in the Environmental Services Building, located at 9850 64th St. W, in University Place.
The meeting will feature a presentation by the United States Golf Association’s (USGA’s) on-site championship director Danny Sink, former Pierce County Executive John Ladenburg, and county officials, who will discuss issues such as the USGA’s decision to select Chambers Bay as the site of the 2015 U.S. Open, volunteer opportunities, ticket sales, logistics for spectators to visit the site, and other planning under way for the championship.
“The U.S. Open is one of the premiere sporting events in the world, and it is coming to the Pacific Northwest for the first time in its history,” said County Councilmember Connie Ladenburg. “This is a great opportunity for residents and business owners to come learn about the championship, including the timeline for preparations.”
The U.S. Open is scheduled to take place June 15-21, 2015. The USGA is planning on total attendance of 235,000 spectators, volunteers, media, vendors, and staff.
