With innovation as its hallmark, The Westin Kierland Golf Club has unveiled yet another fun way to enjoy its 27 holes with the launch of its new Kierland TurfRiders.
Fitness, fun and speed of play have been top of mind at The Westin Kierland Golf Club since it first unveiled Segway Golf in 2002. Adding to its unique fleet of golf vehicles were the golf bike, GolfBoard, four-seater golf carts and now the newest innovation – Kierland TurfRiders.
With golf bags situated at the back of the two-wheel scooters, golfers can cruise the course both on and off the cart path, thanks to their light weight and large, turf-friendly tires that create no damage to the fairways. In addition to adding fun to the game, the battery-powered scooters also add speed with an 18 mph setting recommended for getting around the course and climbing most hills.
Nancy Dickens, director of Golf at The Westin Kierland Golf Club, said the addition of the scooters to the fleet rounds out its “quartet” of fun: Segways, GolfBoards, golf bikes and now Kierland TurfRiders. “The scooters provide a fun, exhilarating golf experience. They are easy to ride but something most golfers have never experienced,” she said. “They continue our tradition of creating a unique and different golf experience at Kierland.”
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, Lindy LaBauve offers professional instruction through the Kierland Performance Center. The Westin 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.
