Home to one of the strongest collegiate golf programs in the country, the ASU Karsten Golf Course is a classic Pete Dye, links-style championship course set in the shadows of ASU’s Sun Devil Stadium. Awarded 4½ 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 and Anna Nordqvist have all sharpened their skills at this premier facility.

Course Description: The ASU Karsten Golf Course is a links style layout, highlighted by lakes, mounds and pot bunkers. Four sets of tees ranging from 4,765 to 7,002 yards provide memorable variety for all levels of players. Strategy is key and precise shot making is critical, as many greens are partially hidden and well guarded by bunkers and water.
