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!

Crowded Course

I've played at Whirlwind several times in the past and have always enjoyed my round. However, I found that the course was overly crowded for some reason on one of the hottest days of the year. I asked the two individuals that joined my wife and I why it was so busy and they told me about the deal they had with unlimited golf for the summer. That sounds like a good deal for someone that is retired and can play all of the time, but not so good for someone paying full price and being subjected to a crowded course... I'll wait until your summer deal is over before I play there again this year.

Whirl of a day

The only negative thing I witnessed during our outstanding round of golf was the trash that is within the Desert brush
I thank you for allowing my small cooler filled with bottled water and the golf cart woman that we saw twice in our 3.5 hour gave me 2 scoops of ice she was tipped accordingly
Whirl that beverage cart around more often

Excellent Fairway and Green Conditions

Got out early at 6:18am when it was cooler, beautiful fresh morning smell as the course was waking up. Practice facilities were great as usual, complimentary balls, great chipping area with large bunkers.

The fairways and greens were immaculate. We were the second group out and the pace was great, finished in 3 hrs, 15 mins. Some of the best conditions I've ever played.

Phenomenal shape, even better service

Avocado green and pristine putting greens. Love this course. First class service. The Marshall on the course today should teach all others in the valley the professionalism one should have on a course. Loved every second of this round today.

Overall Pretty Nice

The course can get a little repetitive at times as it winds through native desert vegetation and small wetlands. The course is flat with a few water hazards and bunkers pepper the course. The track is in fairly good shape, with a few browned out spots. The greens were in good shape and rolled true. All in all a good value and fun play and would play again.

Excellent!

The staff was friendly and efficient. We teed off on time and finished in roughly 4 hours. The course was in superb condition. Fairways, tees an greens were all manicured. Greens were relatively fast and rolled true. Sand was well-kept; with no rakes, we occasionally took a free drop. In all, the experience was very good. Will definitely come back!
