Owner description: 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.

“Nice course but pricey for what you get”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Course itself was very well maintained, but for the $146 I paid, I would have gotten the following things at any same priced golf course at home. GPS on the golf carts, bottled water in the cup holders, course Marshall that actually maintains the speed of play. None of that here.

“Value Eats!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

We didn't golf, but we were staying at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass hotel. You can even take the boat here from the Sheration Wild Horse Pass Resort if you don't have a car and you feel you are a hostage to the hotel!

The food was so delicious for the price! I got a chicken strawberry salad for ten bucks -- fresh, large and chix cooked to perfection! My husband had an iced tea for $1.50 and a burrito. Delicious!!! We would definitely return even if it was out of the way! The service was very friendly and professional and they have a heated porch where you could bring your little poochies! Never liked to leave the doggie in the car! My dog is seven pounds and they welcomed her! I loved the place and were sorry we only at here once!

“Great courses, great facility, awesome staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

We have spent time at Whirlwind practicing and playing. Can find no fault as of yet. You are treated first class from the moment you step on the property.

“Great golf”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

The course was in excellent condition for late September. All of the staff were helpful and very friendly. After the round we went through the pro shop and gave us a card to fill out and that gave us a beer (for $1) in the golf course restaurant/bar. It was nice to see something other than lite beers on tap. The best part was the chicken wings we ordered; their was enough for two and they were great. I would go back just for the wings.
