The Gila River Indian Community has woven championship golf with its rich cultural heritage to create
. Located just off of Maricopa Road and I-10, Whirlwind Golf Club currently offers 18 holes of championship golf with the opening of the 7017-yard Devil’s Claw course. 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 will host the Gila River Buy.Com Classic in years 2001 and 2002. The Cattail Course, scheduled to open in the fall of 2002, will complement the Devil’s Claw but will lend a whole new flavor to championship golf at Whirlwind. While the Devil's Claw features high mounding and significant fairways elevation changes, its sister course, the Cattail derives its design challenges in the opposite direction, as deep canyons and pristine lakes dictate the design. This course will host the Gila River Buy.Com Classic in the years 2003 and 2004.

Kokopelli Golf Course is a spectacular championship course covering over 150 acres of rolling hills and featuring seven serpentine lakes with fountains.
