Award-Winning Golf Right Next Door

Nestled in the foothills of the Sierra Estrella Mountains, the Whirlwind Golf Club is celebrated for its stunning setting. Ranked among Golf Digest’s “Best You Can Play in Arizona,” its 36 holes span two championship courses, and it’s all adjacent to the Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass. Tee up and play through a stunning landscape inspired by the Gila River Indian Community, its emerald-green fairways dotted with native grasses and cottonwood, mesquite, saguaro and palo verde trees. Play the Devil’s Claw, the Cattail, or both.

Devil’s Claw Course

The 72-par Devil’s Claw course spans 7,029 yards. Landscaped with a variety of indigenous vegetation on a gently rolling fairway, this spectacularly scenic 18-hole course was exclusively designed by golf architect Gary Panks to exist in harmony with the surrounding desert landscape. Its stunning vistas and varied elevations are sure to inspire you to challenge your personal best.
