U.S. Open Task Force
What is the U.S. Open Task Force?
The U.S. Open Task Force, comprised of City Council Members, was established in August of 2012 to focus on preparation for the 2015 U.S. Open golf championship which will be held at the Chambers Bay Golf Course in University Place. The Council understands that as the host city for this most prestigious championship, it is imperative that we work closely with Pierce County and the U.S. Golf Association to ensure that the event is successful and that the City realizes the short and long-term opportunities created by the championship.
U.S. Open Task Force Members:
|Kent Keel, Co-Chair

The Host City 2015 U.S. Open Task Force is established to research, study, learn and coordinate with local governments and business associations to implement plans to increase the public awareness and economic development opportunities for University Place in order to make the 2015 U.S. Open the most pleasant and rewarding experience possible for USGA Officials, players, U.P. citizens, and golfing fans from around the world.
The U.S. Open Task Force will periodically report to the full City Council during regular or special meetings of the Council which are open to the public. When reports occur, they will be listed in advance on the Council’s upcoming agendas which are available on this website.
The work of the 2015 Task Force has begun and will be fully underway in 2013. As planning and information regarding the 2015 U.S. Open are developed, updates will be posted on this page.
