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.

Love this course
Course was money as usual. Greens were impeccable, fairways in great shape, and pins in challenging positions. I would play this course every day if I could!
Friendly starter would significantly improve experience
Frost delay for 45, course in great shape and good pace of play. Unfortunately the Starter was extremely unfriendly and set the tone for the day/round. Otherwise friendly Starter assists, clubhouse employee and girl in the beverage cart.
Awesome course and perfect conditions. Even though my driver wasn't working I was still hitting lasers into the green. If my buddy JR was playing I would have taken all of his money! Great time!
The course was in perfect condition. Very interesting holes. Somewhat challenging but yet it doesn't punish you for a poor Drive. Kind of like a resort course. My only complaint about pricing is just that golf in general is overpriced these days because of its popularity. Relatively speaking $100 to play this course was acceptable and worth it.
My family of 4 played during the Xmas holiday week - what a gorgeous course! Loved the layout - generous fairways on most holes, thus not too penal for a mild-moderately off line tee shot. Be aware early afternoon tee times might be delayed due to am tee time players demanding a solo cart due to COVID - just a fyi. Regardless, I will definately be back my next visit to AZ!
Very well maintained, great layout and reasonable for the money. Pace of play was great! Bloodies were even better!
It was great to be back playing Whirlwind’s Devil’s Claw golf course. The course was in immaculate condition.
We were teamed up with a father-son twosome and got along fabulously.
Nice track, check it out
Everything was pure from the tee boxes to the green. Very cute cart girl to add and great pace of play. No complaints here. Check it out yourself
Best In The Valley
Whirlwind - Devil’s Claw is hands down one of the best tracks anywhere in the valley. The practice area is incredible and perfectly maintained year round. The course itself is always in fantastic shape and offers a great but fair challenge from each of the 4 sets of tees. This place is worth every penny and then some.
Great value for the money and in very good shape considering over seeding. Not a bad lie inside the cart paths. Cart path only until grass gets established. Staff was super welcoming and made our experience that much better.
One of our favorites
Course was in great condition. The greens were a little slow due to reseeding. We knew this ahead of time and they are pretty much almost done. Still consistent. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They have some nice shirts and hats in the pro shop. Range balls are included with the tee time.
We saw the cart girl 4 times and the Marshall 2 times. One random guy was just driving around telling people his medical history. He had knee surgery, back surgery, hip surgery and a cist removed. He didn't work at the course. I think he just pays to play and talk to people. It was wild. Lol.....
Overall, great day and we cannot wait to play there again.
