Great track with a lot of history tied to ASU. Front 9 is target golf where accuracy off the tee enhances your ability to score well. Nice pace to greens and well manicured course. Back 9 is a totally different golf course. Longer, wider fairways,...More

Very reasonably priced, nice course. We heard they may be eliminating the course to use for ASU building expansion, so play it soon.

Had a good day out at ASU Carsten Golf - very friendly staff on arrival, excellent golf and lunch afterwards although service at lunch was a little slow. Recommended though!
