Arizona Golf Courses: Whirlwind Golf Club
Whirlwind Golf Club is set on the beautiful Sheraton
Wildhorse Pass Resort. Built on Indian land, this Gary Panks design offers
36 holes of desert golf, Cat Tail and Devil’s Claw. Both courses
are equally challenging and scenic.
The Devil’s Claw layout is a relatively flat layout with natural
desert plants surrounding the rolling and player friendly fairways.
Two water features exist on the course that will demand extra attention.
The challenge lies where deep bunkers rest on the fairways around the
greens. There are four sets of tee placements, which allow this course
to be enjoyed by all player skill levels.
The Cat Tail is the newer of the two courses. Like the original course,
the terrain is flat all around; however, Cat Tail offers deep canyons
off Hole # 15 and sparking lakes. Longer narrow fairways and greens
undulations add an undeniable challenge. This course offers 5 sets
of tee placements sure to please golfers of all types.
