Got a great deal thru Golfnow $16 with range balls. Teed off at 12:30 in temps of 105, almost no one else around and finished in about 3 hours. The course was in good shape for the most part. Some parts of some of the greens were matted down and some of the traps were partly dried mud, just needed a raking.

Beer cart showed often.

Water fountains are welled placed which helped in todays heat.

Bag person did not secure the golf bag on the cart properly. On the third hole, bag fell off the cart and broke Ping Driver in half. At the turnaround, notified the help, they did provide a rental driver for the final 9 holes. Told me to come back at end of play to square up. When I came back, they just wanted to make sure I returned the golf club. Would not take any responsibility for the damage to my club. I'm out a driver.

Everything is fine, but the bunkers were too extreme from one tot he next. Some had fluffy soft sand and others it was like hard pan. Were caught behind a scramble which too forever because the foursome thought they were good but should have stayed, but due to the need golf lessons and a reality check about far they can hit into the wind on a down lie. We waited 5 extra minutes for them to hit their 2nd shot. Come on. other than that it is good course to play and sharpen your game.

I play this course 15 times a year. The course is in the worst shape I have ever seen it. Bare dirt areas everywhere, fairways have very little grass, the greens were not bad. Need to invest on some upkeep. Sad to see a great layout with little or no attention to condition. Sad - hope conditions change with enough real reviews.

Part of the Pricing has to be location being in the middle of Scottsdale and close to downtown Scottsdale. I was expecting a better golf experience. To me McCormick Ranch seemed more like a muni course course that was over booked. My visit was during MLB spring training.
