Kierland Golf Club Puts New Spin on Game

Innovative Bikes Pair Fitness with Speed for a Unique Way to Golf

SCOTTSDALE, AZ — Long known for its popular Segway golf, the innovative Kierland Golf Club at The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa has introduced yet another new way for golfers to enjoy the course – by bicycle. 

New golf bikes allow golfers to enjoy the game while getting a workout. Designed to create minimal impact on the course and maximum fun and fitness for the golfer, the bicycles feature small-diameter wheels and wide rubber tires and have two custom-designed golf bags mounted to the rear of the bike to carry a full set of clubs.

Nancy Dickens, director of golf at The Westin Kierland Resort & Spa, believes that many golfers are looking for fun, new ways to enjoy the game through innovative programs and products.

“The new golf bikes are another opportunity for us to make golf even more enjoyable for those who enjoy the fitness aspect of riding on the course and who may want to trim the time it takes to play a round,” she said.
She estimates that it takes an average of one hour to play nine holes when playing on bikes.

For information about the new golf bikes at the Kierland Golf Club or to book a tee time, call 480-922-9283 or visit www.kierlandresort.com.
