Great Course, very challenging, NCAA tournament was held and no school ended up under par and nearly everyone was in double digits including a 72 above.

The best track in Oklahoma. I've played all tournament ranked courses in Oklahoma except Southern Hills CC in Tulsa and based upon my experience Karsten Creek is the best.
