The Best Golf Course to Open In America in 2014
When Gamble Sands was named the “Best New Course to open in America in 2014″ by Golf Digest, the Gebbers Family could have stopped there. Enjoyed the fruits of their labor. Reveled in on of the highest distinctions a golf course can earn, by one of the most trusted publications in the industry.
But that’s not what Gamble Sands is all about.
The Centerpiece of Brewster
Yes, the centerpiece of the Brewster, Washington property is the 115 acres of fine fescue grasses, designed by renowned golf course architect David McLay Kidd (Bandon Dunes, Sand Valley) to be extremely playable by golfers of all skill levels. There’s a reason he described the location as a “once in a lifetime site that every designer dreams of. “But what needs to be experienced to be understood is the feeling of pure golf, with panoramic vistas on every hole, and beautiful Cascade Mountains and Columbia River meandering through the distance of every hole. There are no planes buzzing overhead, no traffic rattling in the background. It’s you, your playing partners, and golf-the way it was meant to be played.
Endearing Features of Gamble Sands
That doesn’t mean players can’t have a little fun with many of Gamble Sands’ endearing features. Like making sure to take the photo of a lifetime from the tee box of the signature 2nd hole, with a majestic river view in the background. Or pulling out the putter from 150 yards out on the tee box of the par-3 4th hole to find out there’s more than one way to earn a green in regulation at Gamble Sands. There’s also an opportunity to set a personal best longest drive on the par-5 18th hole, if you’re able to funnel your ball an extra 70 yards down a ridge in the center of the fairway. Limitless opportunities to remember Gamble Sands for the rest of your playing days are only a round away.
