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.

Course has nice layout and is in fair condition. Golf now rate was 25, $30 with fees. There are better values in Phoenix.
Need better food and beverage cart service
Did not see the food and beverage cart until hole 15. they lost about $40 of food/alcohol they could have been selling. Went in for a beer after round and bar was packed, no place to sit or stand so we just left. course was in good shape and pace of play was only 4 hours on a Saturday morning so very good.
Course was in pitiful shape. Can’t believe they even have a greenskeeper on staff. No way people work on this weekly much less daily. Might be new management or something but this is not the McCormick Ranch I remember. Better value at Silverado or even Continental honestly.
Would have thought for a Resort Course in Scottsdale it would have been in a lot better shape...
Don’t be fooled by the pictures. It’s a playable fun course but no where near the conditions in the pictures. The range is a joke though. It looks like the rough. Not worth the price point they are asking
The course has a few bare spots and some areas of casual water but was a fun course to play. Pace was good and we saw the beverage cart a good number of times which was good in this hot weather. There was a lack of available water around the course which is something I might prefer they address. Great staff all around and a great day playing!!
A Day at McCormick Ranch
The course was in good condition for the time year. Greens are a little "rough" and fast but overall it is in very playable condition.
It’s a Keeper
First time playing this course. Will definitely play here again. A lot of water and sand on the front nine, less so on back nine. Great scenery! Course is well taken care of. I love courses that challenge me.
I have played this course on numerous occasions and it is in better shape than I can ever remember. The greens were nearly perfect condition, fast and true. . The traps are still a little suspect but again better than past experiences. My only complaint is that the tee boxes on the par 3's were no where near what the card stated. For example the 17th hole from the white tees is listed at something like 146 yards yet the tee box was a full 180 yards out.
Decent public course but not worth $75
This is a flat basic course, which I don’t have any issue with. The course condition is sub par for the money. It’s and 35 to $40 track.
It’s a massive tell when the backshop is more interested in you returning from your round to lightly rag your clubs with there hands out. Versus creating a great experience of for you from the moment you arrive. The young ones need someone to show them what high quality service excellence looks like so they have a point of reference.
Solid value. Greens all in great shape and with consistent speeds. A little dry in spots but otherwise great shape. Overall
Some good some not
Overall a nice course and challenging enough for me. The one issue was the traps. You would think they didn't know how to rake a trap. They were hard as concrete and almost impossible to get a club under the ball. Finally told my playing partner to fluff his lie with the rake before trying to get out.
Don't waste your time or money!!!
Played this course today and was utterly disappointed. First off, They would not allow me to walk. Never been to a course that forces someone to ride! Secondly, they course was a glorified goat pasture! Being April, courses in this town should be in tip top shape! Mccormick Ranch was far from it! Lastly, there are so many ducks and geese on this course it has the fowl odor of goose crap! There was nothing peaceful or serene about this place so do yourself a favor and go elsewhere!
Course condition and staff
They have not done anything about the enormous amount of geese on the course - the course is covered with poop which is impossible to miss - it is very unhealthy as when you touch your ball at anytime it will have been in some droppings for sure. A few people we have golfed there with will not return. Although when we went it was slow the staff there was very slow getting your clubs and not friendly. We will not return
We are sorry to hear about the conditions you played in during your round here. Our bird-chasing dog is 14 years old and recently has been falling short of her duties. We are looking for other solutions to keep geese off of our courses. We sincerely hope you’ll give us another chance in the future.
