More than 150 business and community-minded people from University Place and beyond packed the Pierce County Environmental Services building Thursday night (March 29) for the City of University Place 2007 BusinessFest.
Mark Luthman, regional manager of operations for KemperSports Management (the firm that will run Chamber Bay Golf Course) provided an update. The golf course will open June 23, “You can put that on your calendar.” It falls one week after the 2007 U.S. Open which they are hoping will provide some extra buzz.
Luthman also noted that preliminary ratings rank the Chambers Bay golf course higher than the courses on which the prior six U.S. Open’s were played. As a result, he felt bullish about the prospects of bringing a top PGA tournament to Chambers Bay.
