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.

Played the Palms today. Course was very nice and staff was extremely accommodating. GPS wasn't working so
they brought a replacement right away. Seeing I am from out of town I dont know much of the other area courses. but enjoyed the course and the staff.
Great course great staff
Great course great staff had a party of 13 and was running late and they made accommodations for us great way to start the weekend
Great layout, very scenic, excellent condition for the time of year with the exception of water in a couple of traps on the back nine. Premium on driver length and positioning.
It is not easy or fair to evaluate McCormick Ranch today. Yesterday we had torrential rain which closed the front 9 of the Palm Course and only the back 9 was open. That nine was very wet with standing water and the, traps were full of water.
I emjythe course but this was a tough day.
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.
