Starting Feb. 17, 2017, the Resort’s FUN team will partner with The Westin Kierland Golf Club to offer Friday night fun for all ages including golf games, SNAG® golf for kids, 20-minute clinics with the course pros, a nine-hole glow putt course, music and even beverage cart service right on the driving range.

The Westin 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 golf carts with built-in misters for climate control and a covered driving range. Traditional golf instruction by award-winning instructors Mike and Sandy LaBauve is offered at the LaBauve Golf Academy and Director of Instruction Tyler Haynes, PGA who offers professional instruction and custom club fitting through the Kierland Performance Center. 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 new GolfBoards, which golfers can use to “surf the earth” while golfing.
