Rating 72.5

Kierland Golf Club boasts three unique nines that are played in three different 18-hole combinations. The Acacia/Mesquite Course begins with Kierland's signature nine. Acacia features gently sloping fairways, all of which are bordered by bunkers. The last four holes are the most memorable, particularly the finishing hole, which is the club's signature hole. It is a tricky par 5 with water all along the left side of the fairway to the bunker-protected green. Along the way there are also fairway bunkers that sit just past the water and strategic mounding on the other side. It is a true accomplishment just to make par. Acacia is a formidable challenge but many would argue that the Mesquite nine is more difficult. Its par-4 sixth hole might be the golf course's toughest.

Pretty boring

27 hole course. Played the Mesquite/Acadia course. Tee boxes, fairways, bunkers in very good shape with the exception of the greens on the Mesquite 9. They are terrible. Grass is very thin, almost putting on mud.
A nice resort course if you are just going to be playing it a couple of times. Pretty boring layout but very forgiving. Most of the course funnels into the fairway so even your poor tee shots find the fairway.
For the money, there are much better courses in the area.

Pace of Play

Need someone to check the course for pace of play. Group of 5 in front of us and no sight of marshal to assist in helping us move forward. 5.25 hour round not acceptable this time of year and rates.

Greens were in terrible shape, exceedingly slow with punch marks and sanding still evident. No one in our foursome could make a putt due to the green irregularities causing the ball to move off line especially when it slowed down. The group was really frustrated. I realize these are seasonal issues but it is still frustrating that the course is not more playable in the off season.

Struggling at end of summer

Front 9 was fine (Ironwood) but the greens on the back 9 (Mesquite) were in worse shape than muni courses in the area. Not up to Troon standards by a long shot.

That time of year.

Hot and muggy… nothing the course can control. Course obviously in aeration mode and punched greens. Still shot the best round of my life at a 76. Love the layout and can’t wait to go back when all is well… just gonna have to pay premium $
