The longtime Tempe home of Arizona State University's golf teams will close in May to make way for a mixed-use development.

As KTAR and other outlets reported last week, the long-planned closure of Karsten Golf Course now is set for May 5, but members of the public can continue to tee off at the course until then.

The development planned for the site is the Novus Innovation Corridor, a 330-acre project that will include athletic facilities for ASU and the community, KTAR reported.

Karsten, on the southwest corner of Rural Road and Rio Salado Parkway, opened in 1989. After the closure, ASU's men's and women's golf teams will play at the Thunderbirds Golf Complex near Phoenix's Papago Park. That 7,000-square-foot complex was unveiled late last year.
