Solid Track

Love both courses at Whirlwind, but Cat Tail is my favorite! Course was in good shape for the dead heat of summer, and the pro shop had some great merchandise deals. Highly recommend!

Excellent summer value

$47 for a round at a Troon course. This value is hard to beat especially considering the prices of similar courses in Scottsdale. Course conditions were excellent, pace was great, layout was challenging but not frustratingly so. I’d recommend this course to anyone looking for a challenge!

Amazing conditions

Amazing conditions. Amazing views and course layout. Would absolutely recommend. Only complaint is not a single ranger came around to check on pace the whole round. Group in front of us was absolutely wasted, laying down on the greens at one point and saw one guy chuck his club 40 yards into the desert after a bad shot and proceeded to look for it for several minutes while we waited to tee off.

Nice course. Slow pace

Course is in great shape and practice facility is great. Unfortunately got stuck behind a tournament that was overly slow. Took over three hours to play the front 9 and no staff around to help control the pace.

Good layout but bunkers have very little sand

Played an afternoon round and all the bunkers were wet and had no sand making them very unreliable. Course has none good risk reward holes and can be fun to play with proper placement

Great course

Having played this course several years before my memory of the layout was dim. The signage and the GPS were excellent ,as if you had a forecaddie to direct you. The greens were in excellent shape, very receptive and rolling true. Overall it was an excellent day to be alive!

Cattail in November

The weather was spectacular and the overseeding has taken beautifully so Cattail is lush and green. Fairways are in great shape and the Bermuda rough is dormant so the course plays slightly easier than it would in warmer months. The greens were a little slow and bumpy as it’s apparent the course gets a lot of daily play and not everyone is as diligent as they should be in fixing ball marks. As always the course is well watered and in places that can encourage your ball to check up so plan ahead for that. Overall the course is in great shape.

Most golf experiences start when you pull up to the club house and unload your clubs. Usually you unload them yourself. At Whirlwind, you are greeted by a young man that immediately warms your heart for being there. Any business starts with who is the face or first representative you encounter.. this continues thru check in, your warm up facilities to on the course. The courses are always in prime condition and very enjoyable to play. As usual we have some scores to settle at the end of our round of golf, and the staff in their bar and grill is the best. For the money, Devils Claw is more than a five star golf course. Every golfer should make Whirlwind part of their golfing experience.

Perfect

We played through a good rain storm, but other than that it was perfect. Great layout and conditions, greens rolled true, and staff were good. This is a must play course.

Hole in One!!!

I had played Devil's Claw a few days earlier and loved it so much I just wanted to experience it again.
This time...the experience was EVEN BETTER. The weather was superb, the course was magnificent AND on hole 4 I scored my first ever hole in one!!! Whirlwind Golf resort gave me a commemorative flag from the 4th hole with details of my achievement written on the flag!!! So great!!
