  • I believed this to be a decent course, but I never suspected the unbelievable unprofessionalism and lack of knowledge of employees. They all are telling you different and contradicting things. Whether...  more »
  • Continuing my quest to golf all of Metro Phoenix.... This course is located in Tempe on the ASU campus and is managed by ASU.  I wanted to make sure I got out to play this course before it is closed. ...  more »

  • Derek Crawford is the most unpleasant and disrespectful director of golf at the ASU Karsten club. One month prior to this day November, 16th 2017. I was told by both up stairs and down. Members can store clubs at the facility. Today I was approached by the people below and was told they do not store clubs for members? Funny, I talked with Derek and he refused to allow me the option to do so. This comes a day after I came to him with an issue he hadn't addressed for a month. Coincidence?? I think not. I demanded a refund, he "short changes" me and didn't give the full pro-rate of the remaining time. Said, I was "threating employees. When I refused the lower amount he then proceeded to walk away saying take it or leave it. Very bad management with little to no communication between employees with a major lack of concern or care. Customer service is terrible. I've been with several golfers who get blackmailed by cart girls with the bringing beer into a private establishment. Saying if you pay me I won't say anything. Overall the course shape is disgusting divots all over ever green, bunkers hard as a rock. I've seen workers dip their towel in water on certain holes before... wow.. I don't not recommend this course to anyone unless you want to be treated like lesser of a person.. Very disappointed Derek Crawford. Shame on you
  • Course was awesome. Wish there had been a cart girl on the course. Went on a Wednesday. Not a fan of cart path golf. Out of 10 rate course and people working 9 1/2.
  • I played there today for the first time. The course has a nice layout. And is very challenging, if you miss the fairway. The buckers are not soft sand, but that seems to be the norm for Phoenix area golf courses, at least in my price range. For me the biggest let down was not the golf course, but the noise.It is under the sky harbour flight path, and their is a power generating station very close that run turbines that are as loud as jet engines. I was told that that are not always on. But they were today. If I play there again I will bring ear plugs just to be on the safe side.
  • Not a good course for someone coming from out of town. We were moved to this course due to a tournament and it is overplayed and not in great shape. This club house is somewhat outdated and the service was slow. I would not recommend this golf course.
  • The staff is great, very friendly and helpful. The course conditions are great. The clubhouse is very cool, there is a ton of ASU Golf Memorabilia.
