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.

I just played the Cat Tail course and it is very well maintained and every phase of the way it works is handled great! Challenging but not the crazy target golf you sometimes get in Arizona courses. Greens were very fair rolling with plenty of interesting pin placements. You should go here for sure, but check online for better pricing... More

The golf course was in good shape - especially the greens. Not overly challenging but a good round for the mid to higher handicap golfer. The pro shop and clubhouse are generally staffed with excellent folks. The breakfast is very good and good value. We were staying at a nearby hotel and choose to eat at the golf course every...

We booked a golf package and this was one of the three courses that were included. This course was in very good shape. It provided a challenging golf experience for a mid to high handicapper. The staff treated us very we'll, all were pleasant and helpful.

We can't say enough good things about this grill. We stay at the Sheraton and eat here regularly because of the great food, outdoor seating for our furbaby, great value and the beautiful view! The chix salad is excellent and one morning we had breakfast and it was so great! Instead of bread they gave me a cup of fruit!... More

We played the more difficult Cattail course, one of two courses available, after a two month closing. The pace moved along with little waiting. The course has wide fairways, larger greens with forgiving wide shoulders. Unusual grass; not the typical resort course variety. Service was Troon-worthy. Most of the distance markers were dry-grass covered but this could be due to... More

Went here on a Sunday afternoon. Pace was great. Free water in ice chest on cart and wet towels in the cart. We had a great time although I wish the staff would have asked if we had a Troon card as I forgot to get credit for my round as a rewards member and when the round was over... More

I played this course for an industry event and I was very disappointed. The bad experience started with a bad attitude waitress. I tried to move a chair out of her way and she gave me a look like I should die. Everyone at my table commented on how disrespectful she acted. Once we started playing golf it didn't get... More
