Played the Cattail course twice while staying at the attached resort. The golf course is challenging to the point it keeps you sharp yet forgiving enough that you won't be in the desert all day looking for your ball. The condition of the golf course...More

We have played both Cattail and Devils Claw. Every time we are in the area, we make a point to play here, the course is absolutely beautiful and you will most definitely see much wildlife, from coyotes to little ( what we call ground squirrels)....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

Everything from the staff, the rates, the practice facility, the tee boxes, fairways, traps and greens were first rate. Devils Claw is a little more wide open than Cat's Tail but both are equally picturesque and challenging.

This is an outstanding test of golf with amazing conditions on pristine fairways, undulating smooth greens, and manicured tee boxes. The cart greeting is efficient and gracious, the pro shop contact, Drew, was a little feisty but sincere, and CiCi the starter was the Bomb....More

Firstly, what a great course. I played the Silver tees as a high handicap. It was around 6300 yards. If you search the web they show a score card and you can get all yardages. Enjoy your round there. And please visit... More

Hi, I don't know if there is any discount for staying there ( although I suspect so ) but the average going rate will probably be about $150-175 for peak time play. Hope this helps.
