I'll be traveling to Seattle for Memorial Day weekend and figured while I was in the area, I would try and play Chambers Bay. I called to make a tee time, but since I'll be playing as a single, I was told I couldn't reserve a tee time. I was obviously a bit confused and asked why. Was told that their system only allows for foursomes to reserve a tee time. Still confused, I asked "well, if I just show up, can I just walk on?" The lady on the phone said "of course, but we usually get pretty booked up in advance." Net/net, the solution is to wait until a threesome reserves a tee time (so that there's an opening for one), then I can reserve my tee time. 

I have never heard of such a weird thing. I kind of understand, but not really. Is anyone familiar with this practice at CB and do you know if what I was told was accurate? I have a specific time I was hoping to play, which I why I called 90 days in advance (that's the soonest they allow). Any help would be appreciated. 

Thanks

I played there as a single last month and was told the exact same thing. I called a week before and they added me to a threesome. This was January 30th and they were booked solid that day. Most courses I've played don't make tee times for singles bit are more than happy to get you squeezed in somewhere.

This is common practice out here in Socal.  Very few courses will allow you to make tee times as a single.  You walk on, hope there isn't a tournament and hope they're not too busy, and you get on when you get on.  It's not difficult usually, but Chambers Bay is obviously a different story. Good luck!

Chambers Bay has an online reservation system which does allow you to make a time as a single - I did that 3 years ago and I just checked the Chambers Bay site and that online system still seems to be there and still seems to offer reservations from foursomes down to singles.

Now it might be tougher to get a slot as a single if you are looking for a spot within a couple of weeks - but when I made my reservation it was some 4-5 months in advance.

Yeah, I've checked the website. The only times I can reserve are when a threesome has already made a reservation. Of all the tee times available on the day I want to play, there's only two open that needs a single. Unfortunately, those open times are in the morning and I don't get int town until the early afternoon. 

I'm sure something will come available when I want to play.

    • You make it sound like 15 minutes and 25 tries is a lot. Lots of people spend hours on some bosses, myself included.
    • I’m nearsighted, about -3.25 diopters.  For daily work, I use progressive lenses.  For golf, I have single vision (no reading/progressive) sunglasses, as you do. a) Yes, I lift my sunglasses as needed to record scores, adjust pin/putting location, etc. I’ve never really thought of it as a problem, but I can see how it might be for some. b) For low light, I have a very inexpensive set of single vision regular glasses that I ordered online ($50 or so because I splurged and upgraded the lenses). I keep them in my golf bag all the time.  At dusk, I switch from my nice sunglasses to my cheapo clear glasses. From time to time I consider contacts (I’ve worn them in the past), but then I’d probably have to use a set of readers to deal with (a).
    • This is how the selections have been picked for The Masters winner. I do see a slight problem in that two people picked JS at -14 . From what @iacas mentioned, if I am not mistaken, there can only be one selection for a particular golfer with reference to their final score? I noticed Darkfrog selected JS first at -14. Check out all the selections below:   Colins69                Tony Finau -11 phillyk                    Patrick Canlay -11 ncates00               Patrick Cantlay -13 nevets88               Rory McIlroy -12 pganapathy            Rory McIlroy -17 Darkfrog               Jordan Spieth -14 onthehunt526       Jordan Spieth -14 woodzie264          Dustin Johnson -14 RickK                     Dustin Johnson -17 iSank                      Dustin Johnson -18 DewSweeper09    Justin Thomas -9 Birdieputt              Justin Thomas -13 Billy Z                    Justin Thomas -14 Zippo                     Bryson DeChambeau -11 Hardspoon            Bryson DeChambeau -15 False hopes          Lee Westwood -11 Yukari                    Collin Morikawa -14 Bucki1968             Paul Casey -10  
    • Ahh okay. Interesting you're feeling that already. I definitely don't want to cause a wrist injury here by suggesting you feel it more lol. It's not like egregiously bad at all obviously. It's not quite Lee Westwood, but you're not like super super far off from that.  Anyway, obviously disregard whatever I say if the instructor disagrees. 
    • I do palmar flexion at the top, but it is worth a look, thanks. I’ll ask my instructor.
