Karsten is an oasis of golf, tucked back into a wooded area in the sometimes treeless Oklahoma prairie. Other than holes finishing stretch of 18 through 18, each hole is nestled into own secluded environment. Fairways are of generous width, but beyond a narrow width of rough lies a what is likely an unplayable lie in the woods. Greens, are some of the consistently best in the surrounding area. When rolling quick, you better pay attention to which side of the pin your approach is playing into to avoid being above the hole or being shortsided. Inside the clubhouse is an amazing tribute to the dynasty of Oklahoma State Cowboys golf and includes accolades for all of the individual and team national championships as well as the Cowboys in amateur and professional ranks.
