Conditions were rough for a great layout

Course has plenty of burnout and patches fairways. Expected some, due to weather, but these were excessively worn. Greens were pretty good. Course layout was pretty fun. 1-2 holes were pretty intense with their layout but it definitely was not a cookie cutter course.

Horrible fairways - you could consider 80% of them as ground under repair

Overpriced - Needs Work

Keeping a course healthy in the summer is a challenge, but nearly every fairway had large burned out areas that were unplayable. We were constantly kicking balls over to try and find some decent grass to hit from. The collars around the greens had similar dirt patches. For a $45 round, this would have been no big deal, but for the $90 we paid, I wish I would have played elsewhere. Devil's Claw needs work to justify the price tag.

Too Much for Poor Conditions

I don’t mind paying $80 to play Devil’s Claw when in good condition but not when overseeding is happening within a couple days. The tee boxes were poor on the majority of the holes. The fairways had many bare spots or ground under repair and around the greens had bare spots too. The only positive about the course were the greens which all rolled true. Cost should have been 1/2 the price for these conditions. Also would have been nice if we were told ahead of time about the condition of the course.

Fairways are mostly mud

This course is not currently worth $80. The fairways are mostly mud. Lots of sod all over the course. Greens are slow and very grainy. Would definitely not recommend in it’s current condition.

Cattail course 05182021

Course is in great early summer condition. Course is being maintained beautifully. Greens are fast and true, soft and fast. Loved the bag guys and cart guys! I have been playing this course since opening day way back in the late 90’s. Beautiful layout and a challenging but fun track.

First week of May 2021

Staff is good. Course was okay. I was bummed that the bunkers were inconsistent. Some holes the bunkers looked okay, but were hard less than 1/2” below the surface. Some holes were muddy and unplayable. Yes, I should avoid the bunkers. And I should have some penalty for playing out of them. Just make sure they are consistent Which it was not for the price of the round.
