The course was in okay condition for April, but I was expecting more for the $76 green fee. We finished our round and planned to watch the end of the 3rd round at the Masters only to discover the kitchen had closed at 3pm. I felt like I was playing a municipal course - which would have been cheaper.

Played here a couple weeks earlier. Course in pretty good condition. Yesterday the fairways were shaved almost bald and ground like hitting concrete it was so dry. Plus noticed more Brown dried areas in the fairway. Don't understand the theory in shaving fairways, isn't longer grass better for retaining moisture in the ground, plus giving the golfer easier sweep through the shot. Very disappointing.

Palm Vs Pine - have played both and Palm was in better condition. May be simply due to the golfers who play the course. More ball marks on greens not repaired on Pine. Pace of play disappointing as the group ahead seemed more interested in socializing. Tee'd of at 9:36am finished at 3:00pm. Took full 20 min to finish #18 as we waited for group ahead to complete the hole!

Pine track felt less challenging than Palm. Still had many water hazards and fairway bunkers that affect the average golfer.

Nice pro shop, good service. Restaurant service was slow, food good.

I like the practice facilities and location of the courses in Scottsdale.

Will return but will select the Palm course.

The title says it all. Our foursome followed four screw ups that played every hole in 20 minutes. Although we called the office on the 4th and 15th holes, a ranger didn't come by until we were on the 16th hole. By then the round was ruined. Don't think we would ever play again and couldn't recommend a course that was so poorly operated.

We have been playing all around the Scottsdale area over the years but had never played McCormick Ranch. We found the Pines course to be uninteresting and not in very good condition. The holes were mostl flat and straight with wide fairways bordered by dried out brown rough. The greens were mostly inclined with mostly downhill sliding putts that day. There are so many really scenic challenging courses in the area, McCormick would not merit a return from us.

When I played there was a group ahead of us who were playing very slow. Even though there were several holes open ahead of them they wouldn't let us go through. We followed them for 11 holes and wasn't able to finish our round. There needs to be a marshal that monitors pace of play.

I've played this course several times over many years and frankly I was disappointed in the condition of the greens. I don't understand, given all the rain we've experienced, how the greens could be so hard. Additionally, the sand traps need sand. That's why their called sand traps.
