Situated high above the Columbia River, in North Central Washington, Gamble Sands is blessed with one of nature’s great locations and dramatic golf settings. Much like its older brothers and sisters in the linksland of Scotland, this beauty has 18 consecutive holes that were discovered – not constructed.
No matter the direction, views include the snow covered Cascade Mountains, thousands of acres of manicured apple and cherry orchards, multiple river vistas and mountains of black basalt.
Architect David McLay Kidd was selected from the best of the best. As a Scotsman, he had already created the famed Bandon Dunes and as a Northwest resident he could easily give the site the time it needed to find the very best golf holes.
The course is as authentic a Links course as you could find with traditional fine fescue grasses throughout, (chewing, creeping red, and sheep), wide fairways, massive greens ranging from 6,200 up to 16,200 square feet, not including the combined 18th green and putting green, and menacing bunkers covering 16 acres.

When & Where
Northwest Hickory Players
After a successful three day event in the Portland area in July of 2013, the group was officially organized as the Northwest Hickory Players on January 1, 2014 following a round at ChambersBay. The goal of this group is to preserve and promote hickory golf in the traditions of bygone days when golfers, wearing knickers and other period clothing, played with brassies, spoons mashies and niblicks.
We’re all about hickory golf. That’s it. No modern events, no hybrid events, just pre-1935 hickory play for the love of the game. We invite players from Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and British Columbia to join us by contacting one of us below. Loaner/rental sets available too! We have plenty. Come, join us!
