Arizona Golf Vacations

ASU Karsten Golf Club

ASU Karsten Golf Club is conveniently located less than 10 minutes from Sky Harbor Airport. This course is a perfect start or completion to your golf vacation to Arizona. This championship par-72 Pete Dye design is a Scottish links style course that nears ASU Sun Devil Stadium. The course is marked with lakes, deep pot bunkers and special mounding that Pete Dye was made famous.

ASU Karsten offers four sets of tees ranging from 4,765 to 7,057 making ASU enjoyable for any level of player. The true hazard lies in the precision of your swing given that many of the greens are well hidden behind lakes and sand bunkers.

Scenic Fact: The right side of Hole #16 on ASU Karsten shows a beautiful lake that runs for the entire length of the hole while Dye’s famous mounding line the left and back sides of the hole.
