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.
