Arizona State college practice facility

Arizona State college practice facility

When talking about the best facilities in college golf, Arizona State’s Thunderbirds Golf Complex is on that list.

Located about five miles away from ASU’s campus, the 7,000 square-foot facility resides at Papago Golf Course, a City of Phoenix municipal course which became the home of Arizona State’s men’s and women’s golf programs on Nov. 1, 2018. It features a grand entry lobby, national championship displays, a gym, locker rooms for both men’s and women’s teams, a fueling station, study lounge, team lounge, indoor hitting bays and more.

Six-time major winner Phil Mickelson, an ASU alum, had a hand in the design. It includes a four-acre practice area consisting of five practice greens, four practice bunkers and a three-acre fairway and rough designed to practice every possible golf shot.

Originally built in 1963, Papago Golf Course has become a prominent feature in the college golf world, thanks to “The Bird.”
