A Golf Marathon Benefitting Local First Tee Chapters

 

 

Thank you for your interest in the Chambers Bay Solstice, a 54+ hole marathon event designed to challenge your golf skill and endurance while raising funds to benefit First Tee of Seattle and First Tee of South Puget Sound. Chambers Bay, home to the 2015 US Open, presents a unique challenge; it combines a traditional links layout with elevation change and dramatic views to test your legs and willpower over this dawn to dusk event.
