Perfect Sunday afternoon
Every time my wife and I play this course it’s a delight. The course layout is excellent and always in great shape. The staff is wonderful and they go out of their way to make your round the best possible experience. The price is high, but if you catch a hot deal or last minute discount, you won’t find a better course.
This course is outstanding. Greens, fairways, and tees were all in great shape. We are so glad we gave it a try. Hope to play the other side soon.
Issue with Golf Now
Hello, the course was amazing.
We are having an issue with Golf Now as we had to cancel a tee time and were not able to do so (a member of our group is a firefighter and was unable to play do to COVID 19). We are unable to reach anyone at GolfNow to get a refund. Thanks
What a great day
We do not get to play Devil's Claw very often because of the price, but found a great deal on GolfNow. The course was in excellent condition and even though we waited a few times we still finished in less than four hours.
Beautiful golf course, horribly slow play
The golf course is beautiful, in fantastic shape and fun to play. However, there were no rangers on the course, and the pace of play was horribly slow. As one example, On the 9th hole, there were three groups waiting on the tee box. We had delays on every hole. They need to enforce playing time. It turned what would have been an enjoyable round on a beautiful course into a painfully slow round of golf. With all the golf options available in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area, it will be the first and last time my friends and I play this course.
Service is horrible, do not pay for 36, not worth it!
We were treated horribly, do not stay after 5:00, you get nothing in return!. I will never play the course again, horrible experience.
Excellent day of golf
Spent an hour in the practice area, could spend all day here as the driving range, putting greens (2), and chipping area are excellent. Range balls are included and seem to be quite new Calloway range balls.
Played with a friend and a couple that we were paired with, pace of play was not rushed, just right. Finished in under 4 hours.
Fairways, first and second cut rough, greens are a dream. I don't know how they could be in any better condition. The course is wide and forgiving but offers plenty of challenges and opportunities to play strategically. If you hit beyond the rough, you probably will not find your ball but could find a rattler or two during the warm weather. Take a club with you.
Had an excellent breakfast before our round, highly recommend the food and staff.
All in all, highly recommended.
Pace of play was very slow. At times there were 4 groups at a hole. Only saw ranger once.
Course is excellent and groomed beautifully. Staff were great and very helpful. Such things as GPS, windshields, coolers, and sand repair containers on carts were great amenities. All amenities on the course were in top working order, such as ball washers, drinking water stations, sand was appropriate consistency, and plenty of rakes. Bathrooms were nice and clean. Greens and fairways were in great shape. Fairways were tough enough yet forgiving enough when required.
Only negative is grill at clubhouse closes at about 5.
Would definitely recommend this course.
I have heard good things about Whirlwind and it did not disappoint. Here on vacation. This was our 5th round and Devils Claw was the best conditioned course thus far.. Challenging, but fair.
Our go to favorite course. Very fair and wide fairways.
