They were short golf carts in a significant number

The greens for the most part were in good

condition. rough was long and uneven.

The pace of play was so slow I had to quit after 12

holes.This was a waste of time and money!

My wife and I travelled up into Scottsdale from the south-east Valley to try McCormick Ranch for the first time. We were booked on the Pine Course. We were paired with another twosome. As it turns out one of our players was having great difficulty and as a result we were very slow. After 5 holes the ranger approached us to inform us there was a shotgun starting on that nine in 45 minutes so we had to hurry. My wife and I finally left the other twosome at hole 8 and went to the 10th tee only to find it backed up. As it turns out we were supposed to go to The Palm Course first hole but were never informed of that when we tee off.

We turned around and went over to The Palm Course. We met up with a single and a single behind us joined in. Did that nine in 1 hour and 25 minutes!

All in all it was a frustrating day but the golf courses are wonderful and scenic. Palm course has lots of water hazards and the bunkers are deep on both courses. I will go back to play and its worth more than what I paid but I will take a foursome. The communication from the staff could have been better.

Quite nice round of golf. Two downsides - one of our GPS wasn’t working and there was only one toilet - on #16 or #17. Strange to run all the way in through the pro shop after 9 holes to find a washroom. Nice driving range. From four Canadians, we’re very happy to be Golfing!

I played December 25, 2017. Only the fairways are overseeded and the grass was very thin. They don't have starters on the first tees so there was a lot of confusion on which opening hole people should be playing,. This delayed the start times. The greens on the Pine course are a lot more fairer than the greens on the Palm course. Overall, I like the layout but the course should be in better condition. I wish there was more grass to hit from.

Very nice! Greens were 8-10 on the stimp! Lot's of roll out past the hole on most putts! Fairways were nice! A little thin, but lushy nonetheless. Rough areas are dry, but that's expected this time of year; winter dormant grasses + water conservation. First time on the Pine! Played sister course Palm 4-6 x's already.

Love the green elevation changes & undulations! Well bunkered too! Fair but challenging layout! Lot's of doglegs make for numerous tee shot choices!

Repeat visit in the works!

Greens rolled true but were spotted up with ball marks. Fairways in decent shape. Rough was dormant bermuda but price reflected these facts. Decent layout. Saw a couple bald eagles in a tree on the 4th hole so that was cool.

Our whole group enjoyed the round. The pace of play was good, busy but not horrible. We waited on a few shots but overall things went smooth. I think we finished in about 4:15 or so. The course was in good shape, except it seems no one who plays here knows how to fix their ball marks on the green. Several of the greens had taken a beating although the pin placements made it so these did not interfere with my putts. We saw the cart girl once between holes 3 & 4 and not again until the 16th. Seems like it should be more frequent, especially on a Saturday. We were thirsty! Other than that, a great round on the Pine course that I look forward to playing again.

Spotty rough. Fairways grown a bit long. Greens pretty good. Not a great course, looks like the superintendent just doesn’t have the budget, but a decent play at $40-45.
