Overview
More
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.

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

The golf course is in perfect condition, and the pace of play was excellent. Beautiful layout that has various tee boxes that match your level of skill. Staff is very nice and helpful.

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.

The clever names for its two 18 hole circuits are meaningless- though typically in good condition- its little more than an average links style course with a nice clubhouse and driving range. Most of the holes are plain and unremarkable, there is only water on...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.
