Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Arizona
Great Course, fantastic condition, shame about the people who throw their rubbish on the fairways and do not rake bunkers....Marshall's needed to keep pace of play and cleanliness up on such a good venue. Would not stop me coming back and certainly worth a visit...
Great Course but Often not worth the Price
The layouts on both courses are in front of you.......not much to em.....The Devils Claw has more appealing holes and sight lines in my opinion but both are not going to cause better players any grief.
The conditions although visually appealing are always a bit to soft.....especially the greens.....they are way too slow and need to be firmed up and rolled. Puts from myself and the players I was joined up with were bouncing all over the place. And I’ve had the same issue with the greens here before as well. I understand you got to keep it watered to keep it green, but the colour of the grass shouldn’t sacrifice playability.
The main negative I have for these courses is that they always ask for too much money for their green fees. During the off-season you can play courses like Verrado, Troon North, Wildfire, Ambiente, Etc for the same price......and those courses are another level.
I understand it’s part of the resort/casino so they jack up the rates but at the end of the day there are much better courses for around the same price.
Devil’s Claw on Labor Day
The course was in very condition for being this late in the summer. Pace of play was great as we finished just over 4 hours. We had lunch afterward and the food was very good and the prices were appropriate for the area.
Course conditions were very good, especially for late summer. Nice practice facilities included . We play here a few times a year and are never disappointed. Summer rate made it even better . Played the round just over four hours, pretty good for a Sunday .
Devils claw was well maintained and beautiful!!! Hot summer day but survived by playing early. Great value at $40 summer price. Very high in prime season.
Average At Best
Devils Claw is a great layout however, this is the worst condition I've seen the course since I started playing it four years ago. Every hole has areas of dead (brown) grass in the fairway / around the greens which come into play and can / will play a huge factor on where the ball ends up. Course seems to be overwatered in some areas, including areas of dead (brown) grass. Greens were good, but putting slower than usual.
Summer golf for courses in Arizona can be brutal, but Whirlwind always seemed to have some of the best course conditions of any course around. Not this summer. Still, the course is playable, but temper your expectations.
The course is in amazing condition. The pace of play was perfect. Some very beautiful holes. Devil's Claw is forgiving to the four times a year player. What a great value for the price. I highly recommend getting out this course.
Great course at a great value
I’m a big fan of this course. Terrific condition for this time of year. Green in great shape and roll true.
Very accommodating staffs and nice selection in pro shop
Only complaint is pace of place. Two member groups in front of us a 5 hour round this time of year not acceptable - especially from members that should know better.
Great condition and pretty
I've played here a half dozen times and always in great condition. Staff is nice and restaurant good for after golf. Fairly close to my house in ahwatukee too. A little pricey in the winter but great value in summer.
