ASU KARSTEN GOLF CLUB (480) 921-8070
Arizona Golf Course Review
The ASU Karsten Golf Club in Tempe is the home course of Arizona State University, and is a traditional Pete Dye links style design along rolling hills with scattered trees and
abundant fairway and greenside mounding. Gorgeous mountain views are mixed with backdrops of the Sun Devil Stadium, as pictured in the photograph below. Conveniently
located near the ASU Campus and the Sky Harbor Airport, Karsten is the perfect round for the day of arrival or departure on an Arizona golf vacation.
Awarded 4 1/2 stars by the prestigious Golf Digest Rating Panel, this well maintained and challenging design features Dye's signature mounding and creative bunkering -
making proper club selection essential for low scoring. Top PGA and LPGA TOUR professionals such as Phil Mickelson, Billy Mayfair, Grace Park and Anna Nordqvist have all
sharpened their skills at this premier facility.
On property at Karsten is a wonderful 21,000 square-foot clubhouse featuring one of the nation's top on site golf shops, showers & lockers for both men & women, and a beautiful
restaurant/lounge that is immediately adjacent- serving full breakfast and lunch menus. There also is a spacious patio with golf course views that can be utilized for golf outings
and banquets. Practice facilities include a grass range with target areas towards the stadium, and a huge putting/chipping green.
Golfers can choose from 4 sets of tees that play to yardages and slopes measuring 7057 yards/131 slope, 6288 yards/124 slope, 5671 yards/115 slope, and 4765 yards with a
slope of 103 for men and 115 for the ladies. This is a formidable challenge from the tips - as plentiful mounds and swales on the sides of fairways require players to hit it straight.
On course yardages are marked on the cart paths (color coded), sprinkler heads and on the fairways at 100, 150 and 200 yards. Color coded flags indicate front, middle and back
pin placement on the large, mildly undulating putting surfaces. Especially appreciated are the top of the line club carts, which provide separators for golf clubs, in dash
compartments and ball & club washers.
Rated "Top 30" Best Collegiate golf courses in America by Golfweek Magazine, Karsten is known for its exceptional service and conditioning - and is available for public play with
reasonable rates all year long. For more info, visit our page for the ASU Karsten Course with direct link to their website by clicking here.
