Great condition and challenging course. Pace of play was good. Course was cart path only though I was never told this when booking or checking in. Group behind was driving on the course and the Marshall didn’t care.

My husband played Whirlwind with his son. Course was a 3 1/2 star. Fairways and greens were in good condition. Didn't give it a 4 star because it was kind of a plain jane type course. Fun to play, but not very scenic. Pace of...More

We played the Cattail course with friends who live in Tucson. A real oasis of green in the desert. We all found it a bit too lush as it had been overly watered and was quite damp in too many places. The fairways were not...More

A lush, beautiful golf course with well manicured fairways and greens full of wildlife. The pro shop staff however was curt and unfriendly. We overheard them be short and rude with customers on the phone. We will be back, but the pro shop staff needs...More

The devil’s claw course at whirlwind is a gem in the desert. Great value for the area, well maintained golf course run by the Troon group of courses. The restaurant is also very good value, with a lovely patio with large umbrellas. We noticed staff...More
