Thursday, November 7, 2013
A desert oasis carved out of the breathtaking Sonoran Desert landscape, Whirlwind Golf Club at Wild Horse Pass is as beautiful as it is exciting. Surrounded by ancient vistas and unspoiled mountains, Whirlwind Golf Club sets the scene for a perfect casino golf getaway.
For a truly unique Southwest golf experience, look no further than the Whirlwind Golf Club at Wild Horse Pass. Whirlwind Golf Club boasts two world-class, Gary Panks-designed golf courses – Devil’s Claw and Cattail. Draped over 242 acres of desert landscape, the two exceptional par-72 courses reflect the pristine beauty of the mountainous desert terrain. Affording spectacular views of the surrounding Sierra Estrella Mountains and Gila River Indian Community, both designs impress and challenge golfers of all skill levels; however, where the similarities end, the drama begins. While Devil’s Claw features sweeping elevation changes, devious bunkers and smaller greens, Cattail employs rolling terrain, numerous water hazards and forced carries over water and canyons to present a tougher track for the lower handicap player. As the perfect finishing touch, each of the 36 holes is named after a significant legend or landmark and creates an exciting and memorable golf experience unlike any other.
Adding to the fun, the nearby Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino doubles the excitement with the best in gaming and entertainment. For guests looking to unwind, they can find relaxation and inner peace in any of the 17 treatment rooms at the 17,500-square-foot Aji Spa. For adventure-seekers, the Koli Equestrian Center offers riding lessons, trail rides and outdoor events, in addition to being equipped with tennis courts and jogging trails. Guests will delight in the resort’s four pools, complete with cascading waterfalls and an enormous waterslide modeled after the ancient Casa Grande Ruins, as well as the 2.5-mile replica of the Gila River offering scenic boat rides to shuttle guests to the Wild Horse Pass Casino.
