Economic Impacts 

  • Economic impact was estimated at $140-$150 million in direct and indirect effects; that number will be updated via a USGA-commissioned economic impact study from Pacific Lutheran University economics professors
  • Hotels throughout Pierce, Kitsap, Thurston, and King counties hosted players, media, volunteers, and spectators
  • Hotels as far away as Lewis County benefitted from the compression-effect of near-capacity at hotels closer to Chambers Bay
  • The value of the media attention is incalculable
  • The long-term effect of having spectators from all over the world attending on their own behalf or as guests as such companies as Rolex, Lexus, WorkDay, and others puts the spotlight on the Pacific Northwest and the Puget Sound region
