Whirlwind Golf Club - The Devil's Claw Course
Devil's Claw is one of two golf courses at Whirlwind G.C., part of the Wild Horse Pass Resort and Casino on the Gila River Indian Reservation near Chandler. In addition to its views of four mountain ranges -- South Mountain, the Estrella Mountains, the San Tan Mountains and the Superstitions -- Devil's Claw overflows with Native American culture.
A round on the Devil's Claw at Whirlwind Golf Club begins on Greasy Mountain, a par-4 424-yarder that faces Muh-wah Ha-dahk - the Gila River Indian Community's name for South Mountain. Things get long on the fifth, Maricopa Journey, a par-5 593-yarder designed to memorialize the travels of the Pee-Posh (or Maricopa tribe) from the Colorado River to where the Gila and Salt rivers meet. Go home via Going Home, the 18th hole, a par 4 that measures 442 yards from the Black tees. As the Gila River Indian Community sings it, "Our songs are ending as you go your separate ways, take along with you the good songs that were sung here today, as within your hearts."
Don't go straight home: You can still fit in another song after golfing the Devil's Claw golf course at the Whirlwind Golf Club in the clubhouse, which features a fully stocked bar and plenty of plasma televisions for relaxing and catching up on other sports.

Fantastic condition throughout the course. Very enjoyable round.
Excellent Golf All Around!
Whirlwind is a great place to play. Always in excellent shape, pace of play is good, and the staff in pro shop and on course are just super. I enjoy planing there ever time.
Something about a Troon course that compares to no other. Always challenging but always perfect.
Coarse was in great shape as always,
Played devils claw had lunch decided on a replay and did the Cattail .... good thing as i shot my first ever hole-in-one on #15
Great afternoon of golf
The course was very fair with wide fairways and approachable pins. The cart GPS was very accurate and gave distance right to the pin which was nice. Greens rolled nice although a bit on the slow side.
Eagle Claw 3/19/21
Great weather. Good facility. Paired up with a couple of nice guys. Very much a desert layout. Lots of prarie dogs!
Had to wait on the foursome in front of us on every hole, which made the round seem much slower than it was. It was bad enough that our playing partners quit at the turn.
Decent course but not worth that cost
Payed a pretty penny to play here and ended up only playing 9 holes. The pace of play was terrible and ended up waiting at least 5-10 min per hole to even start.
