Scottsdale, Arizona, US
Kierland Golf Club provides three 18-hole combinations. Named after indigenous plant life found on the course, Acacia, Ironwood and Mesquite offer three championship-style nines – each with its own flavor and strategy.
Emerald green fairways are etched into golden-colored desert grasses, sweeping over constantly changing elevations to flawless greens. More than three hundred bunkers guard the way, along with lakes, dry desert washes and strands of desert trees. The signature TifEagle greens offer up subtle contours that challenge even the best players.
Kierland Golf Club designer Scott Miller, formerly a senior designer for Jack Nicklaus, designed many of the America’s finest courses including Coeur d’Alene Resort Golf Course in Idaho and We-Ko-Pa Golf Club in Scottsdale among many others

Offering the latest in golf technology, The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa was the first golf resort in the country and the only Scottsdale golf resort to offer the option of using Segways to maneuver around the course.
The Segway’s gyroscopes, tilt sensors, high-speed microprocessors and powerful electric motors keep it balanced using technology called dynamic stabilization. With their low impact on fairways and greens, especially on cart-path-only days, Segway GTs help keep the course pristine and beautiful. Play delays on full tee-sheet days are also minimized. Plus, Segways are much quieter than traditional golf carts and run on emission-free battery power.
Kierland Golf Club custom designed the Segway GT to hold scorecards, tees, golf balls and drinks, and the two-wheeled devices are offered to guests as an upgrade to Golf Club’s air-conditioned golf cart. Segway can be reserved for use when booking tee times.
