Fitness, fun and speed of play are top of mind at Kierland Golf Club at The Westin Kierland Resort and Spa, where golfers can now “surf” the earth on golf’s newest innovation – the GolfBoard.

Following the recent introduction of golf bikes to its unique fleet of golf vehicles, which includes Segways and climate-controlled golf carts, Kierland Golf Club now also offers GolfBoards, easy-to-ride electric boards that allow players to “surf” the golf course in a manner similar to water surfing, snowboarding or skateboarding.

Named “Best New Product” at the 2014 PGA Merchandise Show, GolfBoards feature four-wheel-drive, posi-traction mobility that provides traction on even steep hills and allows golfers to traverse the course more quickly and easily, reducing the time it takes to get from one shot to the next.

The GolfBoard’s stability handle provides storage space for clubs as well as controls for speed, but as with snowboarding or surfing, the rider uses body motion to guide the GolfBoard’s steering.

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