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.

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.

Poor Pace of Play

Group in front fell 2 holes behind. No marshal on course to speed up play. Pace of play was worst out of all 6 courses the played.

Wonderful AZ weather and pretty course.

Bag drop service needs a major reorganization. It is not user friendly or employee friendly. Time for a remodel that works.

Arizona Warmth

here from the midwest and enjoying warm temperatures. Golf was good and course in great shape. A couple of the par 3 tee boxes were a bit divot riddled but other wise really good shape. The greens were pretty consistent and would hold with a high shot in. Enjoyed the course and pace of play was good.

Solid Layout With Excellent Conditions

I played Kierland for the first time and realized I should not have waited all of these years to do so. Everything about the experience is first class from bag drop to Pro Shop, driving range to starter. The conditions are immaculate and nary a blade of grass is out of place. The swirling bunkers are beautifully edged and a joy to play from. The man made moguls are clever design features to separate holes and to add some elevation to a flat piece of land. I was not a fan of some of the artificial water hazards as they seemed forced. The pace of play was great at 4:05, which suffered from a slight back up at the turn. Kierland is a first class Troon Golf facility and should be towards the top of your golf list in the PHX area.

Five star hotel one star golf

6-15-2021, as a local one of the worst experiences I’ve had, staff advocate Ian so rude, pace of play so slow could’ve floated in the lazy river and kept up.

Ok price but nice course

This course is very well maintained and has great practice facilities. I would say it is expensive, even for the on-season prices. In like Dec-Apr it is like $150 and in the off season it is like $65

Disappointed

No one was around at bag drop. It had rained and the pro shop was leaking water. It was wet so it was cart path only which was understandable. We finished around 4:00 and was going to go in the pro shop for a hat or shirt and it was closed.

A little tattered

I was disappointed with the course conditions. I played here last year at roughly the same time and it seemed so pristine. The tee boxes are shredded. Greens aren’t terrible, they are all significantly pocked. Very fast and true though. Staff was terrific- they hustle and are very helpful. The place was just kind of beat up. For now at least I would suggest to a friend to take their $175.00 and play somewhere else.
