Nice but SLOW
Great course, fantastic conditions, but putting two -somes behind several groups of 4somes is terrible planning. Since hole 1 there have been 4 groups on every hole. If it were hot my group would have left after the 9th hole
This course was in excellent condition.
The only very minor constructive criticisms were the fairways had a lit of freshly mown grass that needed to be blown away or picked up. Also, we encountered a maintenance crew working on the greenside bunker on #1. The flag was up front and close enough to the bunker and crew to concern us.
Other than that, it was great, as was the meal and service from Kayla in the grill.
This was the first time I ever played this course , and have to say I was very impressed . The entire tract is in outstanding condition . I would highly recommend
Devils Claw - FIVE STARS
The course is in great condition and very well maintained! From tee to green, Devils Claw is how every golf course should be during the hot Arizona summers. Keep up the great work Course Sup and the rest of the ground crew!
Golf shop staff is always friendly and welcoming..
Outside services goes above and beyond to make sure golfers are taken care of.
I might have played this course years ago when it was called Wild Horse Pass. I really enjoyed this last experience so this course is now on my "favorites" rotation. Excellent facilities, fairways in great shape and the greens rolled pure. Lots of visual interest and challenges to keep you coming back. Can't wait to play it again.
I’m blessed to be able to play golf 2-3 times per week. I spread my rounds around the valley at different courses. However, I most often return to Whirlwind more than any other course. On July 22nd, 2020 the course (Cattail) was in Great shape. Best greens I’ve played this summer. I arrived only 15 minutes before my round, but last time I was on property the practice facilities are Sickk. Alignment sticks and all. During my round I must’ve seen 15-20 maintenance dudes on that 18 alone-and working their tails off. Most all the bunkers were hand raked. As opposed to every other course during Covid. Cart girls are chill AF, and their food/beverages prices are very reasonable. 2.1 handicap golfer.
My favorite course in south Phx
The Cattail Course has become my fav course in the South Phoenix area. Sure, there are some bare patches of fairway, but hey, it's July in Arizona.
The course was otherwise in great shape, the practice facility is very good and the food excellent.
Slow pace for a early Saturday
No ranger to speed up the group in front of us. When we called the pro shop, they said the group was on pace. Pace is 4 hours 10 minutes.
Players do not wake up for a 6:45 am round to play on pace! Get out, play early and beat the heat in Phoenix!
Play here a lot. It's amazing
Cat Tail review. Devils claw closed right now. The round includes the range, which is first class. Played from the gold tees (6800). Challenging but loads of fun. It's just so pretty out there. The natural landscape is stunning, but it will eat your ball of you're too far off the fairway. Greens were true. Not bumpy, about an 8-9 speed. Bunkers were a little hard, but it is a million degrees in phoenix right now. Can't wait to come back. Ps, watch out for rattlesnakes. I've only seen one. Curled up they will look like a huge cinnamon roll fyi.
Best Value for the Money in Phoenix or Tucson
Four of us played the Cattail Course this morning. Wow! Excellent practice facility and the course was in very good shape considering (it is July in Arizona). The greens were excellent. The beverage cart came around at least twice, plus there was drinking water about every other hole.. The food in the grill was also excellent.
We have played all over Scottsdale and Tucson over the past two months, and this is the best conditioned course yet. Kudos to Whirlwind!
Good experience for July
Course was in pretty good shape for July. some bare spots in the fairway. But tees and greens were good. Pace of play was excellent. Finished in 3:40.
