Whirlwind Golf Club is truly a unique southwest golf experience. The courses, clubhouse, and practice facilities are sensitively designed to preserve the rich cultural heritage of the Gila River Indian Community. Named for the prominent design feature of the hand-woven basketry of the Authum tribe, Whirlwind is the work of golf course architect Gary Panks. His design weaves the spirit and legacy of this ancient land into a marvelous test of golf. The Devil's Claw course features sweeping elevation changes and dramatic bunkering. The Cattail course complements the Devil's Claw, but lends a whole new flavor to this 36-hole masterpiece, with its rolling fairways accented by striking water features and deep canyons. Whirlwind promises a dynamic golf experience marked by spectacular landscaping, unrivaled course conditions, and genuine customer service.

Hidden gem of a golf course!

Very challenging, with beautiful views of nearby mountains. PGA caliber course, without the PGA price! Managed by Troon, greens and fairways are immaculate. After golf, hit the... read more

Two top notch golf courses. Service was fair, with exception of the drink cart on the course. Attitude! And not a good one.

While staying at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass, my wife and a colleague decided we would play a round of golf. Initially we had a 3:20pm tee time but we were able to get to the course around 2pm and teed off at 2:18. Rental clubs, cart and round (for 2) was under $200 - a great deal on a... More

Very challenging, with beautiful views of nearby mountains. PGA caliber course, without the PGA price! Managed by Troon, greens and fairways are immaculate. After golf, hit the resort or casino. Or visit Rawhide, the reproduction Old West town on the grounds of Wild Horse Pass resort. Great place to spend a day!

Arrived at the wild horse for a round with my son while my wife enjoyed the spa. Booked a 12:45 tee time, the course and facilities were nice and well maintained. Upon booking the tee time they neglected to mention that there was a tournament, and told me that for the first 7 holes we would be slow, about 2... More

Troon does it again. Whirlwind was in the best shape of any course I played this summer. The tee boxes were flat! The fairways and rough were nice and green. The greens were very true and rolled at about a 10.5/11. Sorry, I wasn't in any bunkers, so you'll have to find out about them on your own. We'll be... More

The staff from top to bottom treats you so well you feel like royalty. This is one of my favorite golf courses, both due to the respect and consideration provided by the staff and due to the marvelous upkeep of the course. Adding to the joy of playing this track is the fact that there are no houses to contend... More
