Overview

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.

Hi gang, I'd read good reviews about Whirlwind Golf Club on Tripadvisor so I drove some 30 mi to get here. They're finishing up clubhouse construction in a couple months but there's a restaurant open. The "pro shop" looks like a time-share office, just a...More

This is a fun course. The greens were fast but not difficult to read. Can't say too much about the fairways, I was in the rough a lot, but they looked pretty good lol. Can't wait to play it again.

In the Valley of golf courses this is worth playing. Always well maintained,as you expect from a Troon managed course, this looks and plays more like a parkland course than a desert course and is more challenging than it appears. Slight nuances on the greens...More

terrific resort and golf course. Played Cat Tail! customer service is excellent. Its a Troon Course. Course long, and difficult, lacking in personality. Raised greens, lots of traps. Will play again, but from the gold.

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

Response from Pat A | Reviewed this property |
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.
