Whirlwind Golf Club is a truly unique Southwest golf experience sensitively designed to preserve the rich cultural heritage of the Gila River Indian Community. Surrounded by spectacular mountains and managed by Troon Golf, this unique Chandler golf course is also home to the PGA's Nationwide Insurance Tour, Gila River Golf Classic held every year in October.
The two Chandler golf courses, Devil's Claw and Cattail, are masterpieces developed by Gary Panks that will impress and challenge golfers of all skill levels.
Covering 242 acres, with 92 acres of turfed area and 150 acres of desert landscape, Panks' design is "challenging but fair" for players of various handicaps. Each of the 36 holes is named after a significant legend or landmark of the Pima and Maricopa Indians. Only plants that are indigenous to the Gila River and its surrounding desert are featured on these 7,017-yard, par 72 Chandler golf courses.
Both Devil's Claw and Cattail were created to reflect the land by combining the Gila River landscape including Cottonwood, Mesquite, Saguaro and Palo Verde trees with native grasses and rolling terrain. These challenging Chandler golf courses also feature gradual elevation changes, great bunker designs with multi-tiered greens.
And when your golf round is over, be sure to visit Sivlik Grill in our clubhouse. Our Chandler restaurant offers a unique dining experience including creative cuisine, picturesque desert views and mountain vistas.
