1994 Karsten Creek Golf Course opens, "the finest collegiate golf facility anywhere"

Karsten Creek is named for Karsten Solheim, founder of Ping and a friend of OSU golf. The course was rated the best new public course by Golf Digest when it opened in 1994. A Tom Fazio design and a symbol of Cowboy golf's commitment to excellence, Karsten Creek hosted the 2003 and the 2011 NCAA golf championships.
