Course Review – Kierland Golf Club
Designed by Scott Miller, this dramatic course is set apart from any other desert golf experience. Emerald green fairways are etched into golden-colored desert grasses, sweeping over constantly changing elevations to flawless bent-grass greens. More than three hundred bunkers guard the way, along with lakes, dry desert washes and strands of desert trees. At Kierland Golf Club, every guest is treated as a member. Also, as home of the Golf Digest Golf School under the direction of Mike and Sandy LaBauve, Kierland Golf Club offers a state-of-the-art teaching and practice facility, complemented by a first-class pro shop. With its spacious 27-hole layout and food & beverage service, Kierland Golf Club is ideal for groups and tournaments as well as individual play. Most notably, this high-quality golf experience is conveniently located central to the exclusive Scottsdale Road resort corridor.
Kierland features 27 holes of golf set against the McDowell Mountains, Pinnacle Peak and Camelback Mountain.
