Kierland Golf Club is a Troon-managed course designed by Scott Miller featuring 27 holes that form a complementary collection of nines – each with its own flavor and strategy, but all equally enjoyable and challenging. Golfers can enjoy the luxury of air-conditioned golf carts and a covered driving range. Traditional golf instruction by award-winning instructors Mike and Sandy LaBauve is offered at the LaBauve Golf Academy and ProFit custom club fitting also is available. Kierland Golf Club’s innovative FORE-MAX program helps golfers step up their performance through improved fitness, flexibility and nutrition. With its customized workouts, FORE-MAX is also a popular fitness option for those who don’t play golf. For a unique golf experience, Kierland Golf Club offers a Scottish golf program, where golfers play in a traditional Scottish kilt; Segway Golf, where golfers traverse the course on a Segway specially crafted to carry their golf bag; golf bikes, which allow golfers to cycle the course and Golfboards, which golfers can use to “surf the earth” while golfing.
