Phoenix - Part 2 of 3

Whirlwind Golf Club is a 36 hole Troon facility located in Chandler south of Phoenix. We got to play both courses on separate days. We booked both tee times through's "name your price" for $66 and $62 per player, range balls included. The practice facility is great. Nice big range with lots of targets, multiple putting greens, chipping and bunker area.

The greens on both courses were fast and smooth, 2nd best on our trip. The fairways were in great condition (slightly better on the Devil's Claw) and the rough was dormant grass framed by red pebble wasteland. The finishing hole on Devil's Claw wasn't particularly memorable. There were lots of challenging holes and the hole-by-hole guide was great to help a first timer navigate the course. I'd give the nod to Cattail as the more fun and memorable eighteen. I'll definitely visit Whirlwind again.
