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 $

We were very disappointed in the overall condition of this golf course. The greens were in terrible shape and did not roll true.

I don't believe any of the reviews for this month that state the course condition as Average or better! That is the reason for me taking the time to post another opinion.

Staff was super nice, range and practice area was very good. It did look like they recently repaired all greens as they barely had grass and were mostly brown and muddy. Didn’t enjoy the fact that there was no warning for that as I wanted to enjoy the greens and get good putt rolls.

Excellent resort course

Kierland Westin Resort golf course is just what you need after playing those target desert dry landscape courses. The grass is green and the fairways are mowed nice. The greens roll perfectly. Very good challenge for the average golfer. Water comes in to play on a couple holes but nothing you have to carry. Bunkers have nice soft sand to blast out. GPS on carts helpful. Halfway house has great food selection. Good practice facility. Bag drop is hit or miss.

Excellent Resort Course

A must play golf course here in Scottsdale, AZ. The layout will challenge you from every distance. The fairways have uphill and downhill lies to give you first on some approach shots. The Driver to the correct side of certain fairways is a must for low scoring possibllities. The green run true and nice. Bunkers are full of fluffy sand. Course is in great shape for the price.
