Whirlwind Golf Club is truly a unique southwest golf experience. The courses, clubhouse, and practice facilities are sensitively designed to preserve the rich cultural heritage of the Gila River Indian Community.

Named for the prominent design feature of the hand-woven basketry of the Authum tribe, Whirlwind is the work of golf course architect Gary Panks. His design weaves the spirit and legacy of this ancient land into a

marvelous test of golf.

The Devil's Claw course features sweeping elevation changes and dramatic

bunkering. The Cattail course complements the Devil's Claw, but lends a whole new flavor to this 36-hole masterpiece, with its rolling fairways accented by striking water features and deep canyons.

Whirlwind promises a dynamic golf experience marked by spectacular landscaping, unrivaled course conditions, and genuine customer service.

We have played the two courses at Whirlwind and enjoyed both. They offer good challenges and good value. Booked through Golfnow for under $100

Easy to set up tee time through Troon golf. I would rate this as a nice course if you are in the Chandler area. It does not match up to Troon North or Greyhawk up north but it was in great shape, friendly staff and very good rental clubs.

We were really looking forward to playing this course. It is beautifully maintained and the first nine holes went well. However, we were behind two foursomes of "guys out to party" and pace of play slowed to a crawl. The marshals and the desk were aware of the situation and were not able to handle the groups. Also, since there... More

Layout really reminded me of the N. Scottsdale courses at WeKoPa. Less elevation changes but tactical shoots are needed. Greens were not fast but still presented some challenges due to the subtle breaks. Staff was great and beverage cart was frequent. Everything you want in a desert course at a moderate price. Will make this a return visit on next... More

If you have time before your game for breakfast (or lunch before/after), you will enjoy the dining room here (with a nice bar, too), overlooking the course. Some of the menu offerings are southwestern in nature and have generous portions. Food is very good. As others have said, the pro shop is bare bones right now, and even though the... More

Hi gang, I'd read good reviews about Whirlwind Golf Club on Tripadvisor so I drove some 30 mi to get here. They're finishing up clubhouse construction in a couple months but there's a restaurant open. The "pro shop" looks like a time-share office, just a couple desks set up in a corner of the restaurant. Practice facilities are first class.... More

This is a fun course. The greens were fast but not difficult to read. Can't say too much about the fairways, I was in the rough a lot, but they looked pretty good lol. Can't wait to play it again.

My wife and I recently played one of the two courses at the Whirlwind golf course. The Devils Claw is considered the easiest of the two but by no means is it a walk in the park. Devils Claw provided a nice challenge playing from the "Gold" tees. My wife played from the "Cooper" tees and thoroughly enjoyed her experience... More
