You're mistaken.

You got me on that one. Actually the newest US Open Course will be about 8 years old when it's played in 2015. It was only 3 years old when the US Amateur was played there in 2010. I bet it was in lots better shape than Havana is now.

"Chambers Bay is one of few pure linksland courses in the U.S. The course was designed by Robert Trent Jones II, and opened in 2007, and has already been awarded the 2010 U.S. Amateur, and the 2015 U.S. Open, unprecedented selections in terms of course age by the U.S.G.A."
