Where2Golf says: 

ASU Karsten Golf Course: PERMANENTLY CLOSED IN MAY 2019 to make way for the Arizona State University's expanding athletic facilities district.

[Original Where2Golf description]: ASU Karsten Golf Course is a hilly and at times quirky Pete & Perry Dye design, located in the heart of Arizona State University's Tempe Campus. This desert-style and parkland course, bisected by a busy highway, may not be one of the most scenic in Phoenix, but has for many years represented an excellent value, low cost golf option.
