Whirlwind Golf Club


Profile: The Gila River Indian Community has woven championship golf with its rich cultural heritage to create Whirlwind Golf Club. Located just off of Maricopa Road and I-10, Whirlwind Golf Club currently offers 36holes of championship golf. Gary Panks has designed a masterpiece that will challenge players of all levels while maintaining a sense of fairness and playability. The Devil’s Claw course reflects the plant palette indigenous to the Gila River - Mesquite, Saguaro, Palo Verde, and Cottonwood blend with native grasses to recreate the Gila River as it was when the waters still flowed on the reservation. This course has hosted the Gila River Buy.Com Classic in 2001 and 2002.

The Cattail, another 18-hole Championship Gary Panks' design, had it's Grand Opening on October 14th, 2002 to rave reviews! The Cattail's design incorparates three lake features and the 2.5 mile, man-made recreation of the original Gila River. The personality of the Cattail varys from its sister course, the Devil's Claw, with respect to length and elevation. This course plays approxiamtely 200 to 300 yards longer than the Devil's Claw from the back tees, yet is comparable in length from the forward tees. As the Devil's Claw uses an increase in elevation as one of its design features, the Cattail uses a decrease in elevation with canyons and wash areas to accent its layout. This course opened in conjunction with the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort and Spa in October and will again host the PGA Tour's The Gila River Classic in the years 2003 & 2004.
