Karsten Creek

Added to favorites

In the 1970’s Mike Holder, a former OSU Head Golf Coach and OSU Athletic Director, had a vision for college golf at Oklahoma State University. After many years of planning and fundraising, work began on one of the most challenging courses in collegiate golf, what is now known as Karsten Creek. Renowned golf course designer Tom Fazio, designed and built the course over a 3-year period.

On May 9th, 1994, the course opened, and was promptly named the “Best New Course” in the country by Golf Digest. The zoysia fairways were cut from a forest of oaks and black jacks, complemented by an undulating terrain that flows throughout the course. The back nine cascades around the 110 acre Lake Louise that is featured on the finishing holes. Complementing the course, are the clubhouse, three multi-level guest lodges, and state of the art practice and teaching facilities.

The name Karsten Creek honors the late Karsten Solheim, founder of Karsten Manufacturing (PING), and Lake Louise honors his wife. The Solheims support of OSU golf over the last 20 years has been instrumental in the success of the golf program. As the home of the Oklahoma State Men’s and Women’s golf programs, the course is kept in a challenging condition, allowing team members to maintain their competitive edge.
