ASU Karsten Golf Course

asu-8If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to play a links-style track carved out of the Sonoran Desert, you’ll want to play a round at ASU Karsten, home of the Sun Devils and a hidden gem in the resort-heavy Phoenix area golf world.  

From fairways that twist and turn to bunkers that surprise and dismay to well-kept little greens that demand precision, Pete Dye designed a course that provides all the challenges of classic links golf.   It gave my game quite a workout!

This collegiate course has all the amenities of a commercial track without the price tag — an efficient bag drop and check-in, a fully equipped pro shop, a club house that will satisfy your post-golf appetite, and a staff that’s happy to see you.

I’d hoped to catch sight of Phil Mickelson, who’s helping his brother recruit for the Sun Devils by serving as the team’s interim assistant coach or one of two of Sun Devils’ alumni, perhaps even Anna Norqvist, but star-watching will have to wait for another round at another time.  And there will be another round for me at this well-maintained track that gave me a thorough workout.
