I have been wanting to play these courses (Cattail & Devils Claw) and though I found the course to be in good condition and somewhat challenging for the same value or less, I have played others in the area that were much more scenic, perhaps I will try Devils Claw and it will impress me more.

Greens were running fast and the course was in excellent condition. Five tee boxes allowed for varied skill levels. Staff were welcoming and attentive. Only complaint was the pace of play...5 hours.

Lush course conditions, for sure. Course interesting and well laid out. Pace of play good on a weekday afternoon. I walked, so If you also walk, prepare to hustle a bit on many holes with a fair amount of distance from green to tee. Greens were not overly fast, but smooth. Practice areas very nice. Good expierence overall!

I played WhirlWinds Cattail and the course is excellent. Challenging course with a lot of tough holes and great views. I forget what hole we were on but my group had seen a wild group of mustangs running in the background of one of the par threes. One of the coolest experiences I have had specifically on a golf course. Great service and an excellent value for winter rates inn Golf Now.

The only negative thing I’d say is that I booked Cattails on golf now, but the pro shop said I was on devil’s claw. It was my first time on either, so I didn’t make a fuss about it. Devil’s Claw was a really fun course, with decent elevation changes and near perfectly maintained fairways. The greens were really fast, which counterbalanced the somewhat spacious fairways. It was a beautiful course. I’ll definitely be a regular here.

The course is a great layout and the staff is very helpful. Course was in good condition, but soft. Had to clean mud of every fairway shot. This made the course play long.

Golfing at Whirlwind Golf Club on the Cattail course was fabulous. I played the the final day of a week-long conference. The spectacular views all around the track were quite distracting at times, but I chalked this up to my first visit. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed my solo round and I look forward to returning.

The course was in great condition for this time of year. It is a very challenging course as the par 3's are fairly long and may have a bunker in front of the green. Time of play was 4 hr 10 minutes. Facilities are excellent.

Greens were great, fairways clean for the whole track. I have played both Whirlwind courses now and Cattail was great. Devil's Claw is fun, but Cattail was best all around. Excited to play it again.

Having only experienced this course for the first time earlier this summer, this course is quickly becoming one of my favorites. The course has an interesting layout, the fairways and greens are always in top condition and it is not so severe as to punish a few poor shots. The clubhouse and the general upkeep of the course surroundings are definitely upscale, yet tasteful for the area. The course is worth the trip and the extra bump in the summer rates.

We played this course on a very hot day, over 100 degrees. The course offers drinking water on several holes also towels and cups if you do not bring your own. On hole 13 the players assistant came by with ice cold towels for all of us. Perfect timing because the heat was starting to affect us. Plus the towels were different colours so you didn't have to worry about mixing yours up with your partner. These types of gestures go along way in customer service.

Well done Whirlwind. We will see you next year. Thank you.

PS. The pro shop has a very nice selection of ladies wear and great selection of Footjoy shoes.

Without question, this was a fine round of golf. All of the people their are extremely nice. Beverage cart came around on a regular basis without being annoying, the Marshal came by and provided cold towels. All in all, either course is great to play, and we all enjoyed the time there.
