Designed by Scottsdale golf course architect Scott Miller, Kierland Golf Club is set in lush, rolling urban parkland near Scottsdale and Greenway Roads. Named for the trees that dominate the landscape — Acacia, Ironwood, and Mesquite – each nine has a separate feel marked by distinguishing characteristics. The entire layout features exciting shifts in elevation, particularly on the Acacia nine where the ninth hole drops nearly 80 feet from tee to green.
