Unlike many other Scottsdale courses, Kierland Golf Club's three nines sprawl across rolling hills without a single cactus in sight. The nines are played in three different 18-hole combinations. The Mesquite/Ironwood Course is has player-friendly fairways that are generous and easy and the green are large but not particularly undulating or fast, which makes the golf course accessible to a range of different skill levels. The course isn't entirely forgiving though. The Mesquite nine may be the flattest of the three nines but it is also the toughest. The par-4 sixth is especially demanding. The challenges of Mesquite are balanced by the player-friendly nature of the Ironwood nine. There is some strategic mounding but overall the links design is very approachable. The golf course ends with its signature hole, a classic risk-reward opportunity with a lake to the right and sand traps to the left.

Fun time

Excellent condition. Fun layout. Played in just under 4 hours. We would have been close to 3 hours but the group in front was not letting faster groups through. Enjoyed the round. Staff was super friendly.

Beautiful Course

This is a beautiful resort course. Allows you to spray the ball without losing too many. Very lush. I really enjoy playing here as its green with plenty of shade. Some tee boxes don't have much shade, but other than that, its very nice.

Fun course…

Overall fun course and will definitely play again. The back nine greens were rough as they were just recently punched. Areas around the greens very wet leading to plugged approaches. But the staff was great and the beer was cold…great time.

Overbooked

The course was terribly overbooked - almost a five hour round on a Thursday! I’ve played here many times and that was the slowest round to date.

A good deal for the $

Played with a nice guy I met on the first tee.Temp was 116 started at 2pm.Price was under $60. We both we were both attracted by the price. The pics I saw of the course led me to believe it would be more intimidating the course was straight forward.If You drive it fairly straight the design makes it hard to loose a ball ( most fairways slope to the middle..Had a nice time. Play for the bargain rate if you can take the heat.

A Golfers Desert Dream

Great courses, great staff. It was 112 degrees but you would hardly notice. We desert rats can find shade anywhere and ice water was always nearby. Good practice facility and snack bar. Ray, the starter, was a really cool dude. Very helpful and friendly with a wisecrack or two about my favorite football team. I live in Tucson and this will be my course of choice whenever I’m in the area.
