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.

This course has always been one of my favorites in town. Always has great customer service from the guys in the shop and the cart guys. The course is well-maintained and is hard but not frustratingly challenging.

well I mostly picked this course because it was a hot deal, we played a few really nice courses before playing the Pine. I guess we were a little spoiled but was disappointed with the overall course condition, rough was brown grass and fairways were a little chewed up.

i'll blame the couple of days of rain the day before.

I was expecting a good experience since course had a good rating. I thought the course conditions were terrible. The fairways were below average and the rough was like concrete with no chance of getting a divot.Even the tee box was a struggle to get a tee into the hard ground. The greens were in poor shape. Since this was the first time I played in AZ if I started on this course I would have thought this was the standard but I played on 2 courses before and both courses were spectacular thus my poor rating for this course.

Never playing either course, I chose McCormick Ranch purely for location. I was pleasantly surprised with the facility. Staff was great both in the pro shop and outside. Easy to get around and signage was easy to understand. The pine course was a lot of fun, challenging yet fair. Greens rolled great even for the amount of play they receive this time of year. The only flaw was the lack of sand in some bunkers. I will definitely be back for another round!
