Should be named Tons of Mounds. If you miss the fairway you will most likely have a blind shot to the green. Otherwise pretty wide open with some water challenges.

The pending tear-down of the golf course makes it a timely course to try and get a few rounds in. It's beautiful, quick and parking is really easy. Pretty affordable too.

Great course that was in excellent shape. Greens rolled true and all in all it played very friendly. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and helpful. I would highly recommend a visit to ASU Karsten when visiting the Phoenix area.

I played alone and chose this course as it was close to my hotel. Sometimes when travelling it is very difficult to get tee times when you are on your own. No problem here. The course is quite hilly but in great condition and well...More
