Great Track! Well maintained and services are professional. Fair yet challenging.
Nice layout. We played from the gold tee. A lot of 350-420 yard par 4's. It made for a challenging round. Safe off the tee left a longer iron in. Driver off the tee had better find the fairway. Greens were receptive. I would definitely play again and recommend it. I prefer this over the Cattail course.
Great desert feel
My wife (22 hcp) and I (9 hcp) played here Feb 11 on the Devils Claw course. Was greeted very kindly with a cart when we pulled up. Pro shop staff very friendly. Bar and restaurant staff were great. Prices very reasonable. Driving range, chipping and putting greens were immaculate. The starter was very kind and helpful as this was our first time playing here. You will want to keep the ball in play! Ball goes into the desert you will probably not find it. But the fairways and rough are plenty wide enough where this shouldn't be too much of a problem. The course from tee to green was in immaculate condition! Weather was perfect. I loved this course and would definitely play here again. If I had to mention anything bad about the course it would be the bunkers were not all raked and ball marks on the green were plentiful. Now this is not an issue with the course itself but rather with the individual players of the course. Apparently not all golfers are courteous. Go figure!
Course conditions will be tough to beat for the money.
Course was in fantastic condition. Practice area is the best. Prefer the Cattail over the Devil Claw.
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.
AN ABOSOLUTE MUST!!!!
Being January, the rough were dormant but still very playable. Fairways were over seeded so very plush green and still ran great. Greens were very receptive and ran fast and true. Bunkers are shallow so a bit tricky to play out of. The layout is amazing!!! It's challenging but still fun!! Definitely plan on playing here the next time I am in town!!!
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.
Great course...played two times now. Always amazing
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.
