During this episode, Jay Blasi shares his experience designing Chamber's Bay Golf Course, the home of the 2015 U.S. Open. One piece of advice Jay shares about golf course design is to break the rules if there is a compelling reason to do so.
Jay Blasi spent his initial years at RTJ II assisting the design team on dozens of projects around the world. His first opportunity to serve as one of the lead architects on a project team came at Chambers Bay, a true links layout on the shores of Puget Sound, in University Place, Washington. Blasi fell in love with the property on his first site visit, and spent the majority of his time on the project from 2004 to 2007.
Jay says he deals with others in a variety of different ways, he draws plans, communicates and works with others on developing a game plan to create a golf course.
