We visited many venues throughout the Puget Sound and when we met Kyra at Chambers Bay and saw the water and mountain landscapes, it was a done deal. The views are stunning from the ceremony/reception space and there are many opportunities for beautiful photos around the property (down by the sorting bins, on the water's edge, the walking path and bridges, in front of the golf course green, etc.)Sent on 08/23/2016
Kyra (day of coordinator) and Mariah (banquet captain/manager) were both very accommodating to all our ideas and would consistently reply within hours with answers to my many questions throughout the planning process. When the weather was looking unpredictable on the wedding day, they were both willing to wait out the rain and had their teams on full standby to set up or make changes however we decided. They also had shuttles and golf carts coordinated to help with transportation for bridal party photos and parking. My only suggestions for improvement would be for the facilities department to update the tented pavilion window panels which appeared aged/ripped in some places and to assign someone to double check on room set-up (we were missing our cocktail tables which somewhat re-located our cocktail hour). These were so minor in the grand scheme -- we absolutely loved our experience at Chambers Bay and will have many life-long memories from there! Thank you, Kyra, Mariah, and staff!

Fantastic venue, with amazing customer service throughout the entire process. We looked at several venues and Chambers Bay was by far the most accommodating, best value, best quality, with the prettiest views. All of the catering and event staff went above and beyond. The food was amazing. The views were breathtaking. Kate worked with us on our specific requests and she made sure everything went smoothly. Would absolutely recommend.Sent on 07/10/2019

Picturesque PNW Wedding
The Chamber’s Bay venue showcases the Pacific Northwest at its finest! The best of the PNW is exactly what we wanted to share with our guests! We were very satisfied with the customer service, attentiveness of the staff, and high quality of service we received throughout the whole process from booking to the day of our wedding. Anthony Shipman and Kate Barry, the events coordinator, were a pleasure to work with and made the whole process easy and stress-free. They gave us the best recommendations in the selection of vendors. The venue, banquet space, and food were super amazing!Sent on 06/11/2019
The cute bridal suite attached behind the banquet tent was a great accessory! We arrived at 9AM to get ready for my wedding and were pleasantly surprised by the champagne on ice, toasting glasses, and bottles of water the staff had set-up for us. We had our hair and makeup artists get us, 6 ladies, prepared in there. There was plenty of room and the set up was nice, which included a comfy couch, vanity area, numerous lockers, and changing area. It was great to have the bridal tent nearby to easily store our belongings, do outfit changes, or touchup on makeup.
Although the park and walkway at Chamber’s Bay is essentially open to the public, it did not interfere with my wedding day whatsoever. The raised venue area makes it feel completely private. The venue is breathtaking and nicely displays the Puget Sound and the Cascades in the horizon. Café lights are nicely strung outside of the venue tent above the cocktail tables to create an inviting outdoor space overlooking the water. We had appetizers and champagne served to our guest for cocktail hour and provided our guests with an open bar and served them filet mignon, chicken, scallops, and delicious sides. Whatever we wanted for our wedding; Kate worked with us to make it happen. She coordinated golf cart transportation for our first look and sunset photos near the water. Kate was even able to work with us to provide our guests late night snacks (hamburger sliders and fancy, focaccia grilled cheese sandwiches) even though it was not a listed option provided to us in the events booklet. We were very satisfied with the quality of food here; it is definitely top-notch.
Chamber’s Bay surpassed our high expectations and delivered a beautiful wedding day for us and our guests. We highly recommend this venue for classy PNW weddings!

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