Chambers Bay is a publicly owned golf course with a ballroom in University Place, Washington. This elegant coastal venue offers views of the Olympic Mountains and ceremony sites on the banks of Puget Sound. Couples can find this facility approximately 45 minutes from the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

Facilities and Capacity
This venue welcomes up to 220 guests for a couple’s wedding. They can marry on the paved patio area right on the banks of Puget Sound. With a backdrop of blue sky and blue water, this romantic overlook location is a natural beauty. Guests can attend the ceremony in white folding chairs placed on the cement. There is a tented Chambers Bay Event Pavilion providing shelter to couples’ receptions in seasonally appropriate months. This space features floor-to-ceiling windows of the breathtaking surrounding landscape, from the snow-capped mountains to the well-manicured golf course. This space features elegantly draped ceilings with dainty chandeliers evenly spaced in the middle of the room. The ground underfoot is carpeted with a dance floor in the center. There is also an open-air structure on this property reminiscent of ancient Roman architecture. Massive multi-story columns of concrete or stone support a long open ceiling. This is a magnificent location for wedding photographs with the wedding party or just with the couple alone.

My husband and I used Chambers Bay and KemperSports as the bartenders for our wedding. Kate and her staff were wonderful to work with. During the planning process Kate was super responsive and helpful as we decided on the specifics of our package. On the day of our wedding every aspect of the bar and the additional service staff went off without a hitch. We are so thankful and highly recommend Chambers Bay and their staff.

Chambers Bay is a great venue for an event: one of the best views in Tacoma, Great food and great service!

Wallflower Photography Wallflower Photography Wedding Photographers

Hands-down, Chambers Bay Golf Course offers one of the most stunning sunset views in Tacoma! We've really enjoyed photographing there and were able to get a fun set of portraits, with backdrops ranging from the huge Puget Sound view to the unique remnants of the old gravel mine. It's one of our favorite local spots and definitely worth a look.
