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.

Nothing too stressful, great warmup course for AZ trip
Course was very enjoyable and in good shape. Staff were all first class and friendly/helpful. Greens were average speed. Bunkers need a lot of work, but otherwise great value for the price. Nothing about the layout has a wow factor, but the type of course I wouldn't get bored playing if it were my home course. If you are a 5-7 handicap or lower, play back tees to add a little challenge and more forgiving off the tee left and right.
Took a friend celebrating his retirement. Great weather was perfectly complemented by the Devil's course condition and staff friendliness. We had lunch and the food/service were excellent. Couldn't ask for a better day. Will definitely come back and play in the near future.
Very nice course
Course condition was very good. Practice facility is perfect so come early before your round. A bit pricy but worth of money.
All I can say is that this was one of the finest tracks I’ve played in the valley. Course was in excellent shape. Great layout. Excellent pace of play. Pricey but you get what you pay for.
Excellent course challenging and fun.
Worth the green fees. Will definitely return here in the future.
Course had been over seeded for winter but other than the greens being slower than normal they played nicely and the place is in great shape
Great course. Loved the layout. Great views and friendly staff.
Just Has been over seeded so cart path only. The course is beautiful. In good condition. Staff are excellent .
Great conditions and beautiful course
The Devils Claw was in great condition. I assume the course was overseeded recently but you would never know with exception of the greens being a little slow.
Very fair course but plenty tough if out of position or in one of the monstrous but wonderfully maintained sand traps. The landings areas off the tee were plenty wide and pretty well defined by the architectur of the course.
The price was comperable to the other high end courses in the east valley.
Will be back!
The course was amazing. Greens and fairways were in great shape. Tight and wide fairways. Scenic with mountain back drops.
Suggestions - they needed more golf carts. Didn’t get a cart until right before tee time. Ended up getting a flat tire too.
Course was in great shape. Pro shop staff were very friendly. This is a challenging course but fun.
Played for the first time here, WOW. Wry nice and well
maintained. Challenging with narrow fairways. But I really a very nice course. Would definitely ply again.
