Palm at McCormick Ranch Golf Club
McCormick Ranch Golf Club features two lush manicured year-round courses amid the lovely views of Scottsdale. Both the Palm and Pine golf courses' championship tees lay to over 7,000 yards, and there are also the options of men's, seniors' and ladies' tee sets to allow everyone a crack at the tests offered by these golf courses.
Golf Illustrated selected the ninth hole of the Palm Course at the McCormick Ranch Golf Club to be "One of the USA's Top 18 Water Holes." It's just one of 10 water holes on the golf course, which, as you might imagine, also features lots of big palms. In all, the golf course plays to over yards from the blue tees, including four par-5 holes that measure over 500 yards.
A round of golf on the Palm Course at the McCormick Ranch Golf Club kicks off on the par-4 first hole, which plays close to 400 yards from the blue tee and requires a drive right-center to ensure a short-iron second shot.

other courses in Scottsdale are much better than this.
large area of no grass on fairways, tee boxes shaggy
i think they are late in overseeding. cart path only.
greens were fine.
Very nice course
I played early in the morning and was able to finish in 3 hours. Fairways are in good shape. Greens are fine. Water comes into play several times. Course is challenging, but not ridiculous.
Course isn't ready and my range finder disappeared
We played the Palm Course on Friday. Don't bother for another two to four weeks - the grass is way too high on the fairways and the greens after overseeding. In general, the whole place felt like a factory - really busy and nothing special.
Also, we were one of (if not the) last carts to come in. It was dark and I left my range finder on my golf cart. That's on me but there's no way it wouldn't have been found. I called the next day and they said they didn't have one. I get it's on me but I'm pretty disappointed.
Course is average as far as layout and course conditions.Back nine more interesting and challenging than front.Course average at best.
Course is nothing special. Average to above average as far as course layout and overall course conditions. Back nine is more challenging and a better layout than the front (Palm Course). Overall, had a decent round and played in under 4 hours as a foursome.
My first time playing there. I enjoyed and will go again.
McCormick Worth Playing
A great course design. Fairways and greens are good but the rough is very spotty and the traps are rock hard and need more sand which has been a problem for a very long time
First time playing
Thought the course was nice, people were great,. Only comment is that they make you pay for range balls, even after paying for a round. Would definitely return
Poor Overall course conditions for $100
Played at 8:10 this morning. Best part about the course was actually the greens-I’d rate them 7.2/10. Tee boxes, fairways, and rough were horrible. I play 2 times per week all around the Phx area, and I would not recommend this course to anyone other than someone with a handicap of 18 or higher.
