Karsten Creek Golf Club


5-star : simply the best - golf courses don’t get much better than this.
   Karsten Creek Golf Club Est. 1994

Where2Golf says: 

Karsten Creek Golf Club, home to the Oklahoma State University golf teams, is a course that's generally regarded as one of the top three collegiate layouts in America. This excellent Tom Fazio design contains a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes laid out in a wooded parkland and lakeside environment.

The generally good-width fairways were cut from a forest of oaks and black jack trees, handsomely complementing the undulating terrain that flows through the course. There's plenty of elevation change to be factored into your shot-making and, in typical Fazio fashion, stylish bunkering to be avoided. Rocky outcrops also put in occasional appearances. After the front-nine loop, which plays counter-clockwise through a wonderfully natural and quiet forested setting, the back-nine loop cascades around the 110-acre Lake Louise. The lake features most strongly on the closing stretch.

Most memorable holes: The long par-3 7th played to an elevated and well-bunker defended "Redan-style" green, takes some beating. So too the par-4 17th and par-5 18th, both played over and then alongside Lake Louise. All three holes, and others beside, can potentially shoot some nasty holes in your score.

Did you know?

Karsten Creek is home to Oklahoma State University's mens and womens golf teams (the Cowboys and Cowgirls). | In the 1970s Mike Holder (former OSU Head Golf Coach) envisioned a sanctuary for college golf. After many years of planning and fundraising, the Tom Fazio-designed Karsten Creek course opened in 1994.

The course was named in honour of the late Karsten Solheim, founder of Karsten Manufacturing (PING), and Lake Louise is named in honour of his wife. The Solheims' support of OSU golf over the years was instrumental in the success of the University's golf program.
