The Devil’s Claw Course at Whirlwind Golf Club is truly a unique southwestern golf experience. Both courses at Whirlwind, Devil's Claw and the new Cattail, were designed to preserve the rich cultural heritage of the Gila River Indian Community. An annual host to the Nationwide Tour Gila River Classic at Wild Horse Pass, 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 18-hole "Devil's Claw" course at the Whirlwind Golf Club features 7,017 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72. The course rating is 72.8 and it has a slope rating of 131 on Bermuda grass. Designed by Gary Panks, ASGCA, the Devil's Claw golf course opened in 2000. The course is managed by Troon Golf! Whirlwind Golf Club has the COOLWELL® G2 personal cooling system installed on all their golf carts!
