STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ Karsten Creek, the home golf course for 10-time NCAA champion Oklahoma State, will host the NCAA men's national championships in 2011, the university said Wednesday.

The par-72, 7,408-yard course in Stillwater also hosted the national championships in 2003, when Clemson beat Oklahoma State to win the title. Oklahoma State also finished second to Florida when the event was held in Stillwater in 1973.

The 2011 tournament is scheduled for June 1-4.

The NCAA men's golf championships will be held at Golden Horseshoe Golf Club in Williamsburg, Va., next year. Other future host sites are Purdue's Kampen Course in West Lafayette, Ind., in 2008; Inverness Club in Toledo, Ohio, in 2009; and The Honors Course near Chattanooga, Tenn., in 2010.

Oklahoma State won this year's men's golf title at Crosswater Golf Club in Sunriver, Ore.
