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.

Was a cool and windy day and I didn’t play well. The course was very good, although it was quite wet from recent rain storms. Good greens and a good layout. I played the Palm course. I would definitely return
Great course layout.
Very courteous and professional staff. Definite play again. Rained the night before so wet fairways kept carts on paths.
I appreciated the course and its amenities as well as the friendlyness of the staff.
However I was a bit dissapointed with the pace of play..
Links course. Some interesting holes starting at around seven. Ninth hole is very interesting, but tough. Can take some aggressive lines off the tees to carry trees, for long drives, on the back nine. Sloped greens are a little bumpy from lots of unrepaired ball marks, but true enough and fairly quick. Played in under four hours.
Nice course nice layout- good pace of play
I like these courses but I have two complaints- please mark direction to next hole either by painting arrows on cart path or signage showing the way to the next hole- please put some sand in the traps. I would recommend these two courses.
National Compliment day
Nice course , enjoyed the round....... 6700 yards , but only 4500 yards of actual fairway. Lots of water
Good course, but facilities and fairways are due for a renovation
This is my first time playing the Palm course and In general the fairways were in good shape but deteriorated as the round continued. Before our round we had lunch at their restaurant and the salads were very good. My wife and I played inter afternoon and the pace of play was good - but starting on the 6th hole became backed up and we started waiting 10 minutes on every hole. My general impression is that the resort is a little rundown an in need of a renovation along with the fairways that need to be reseeded and fertilized so that you’re not hitting off dirt or mud on your approach shot to the green.
Great course for a casual round, pleasantly surprised by how decent the conditions are, consistent greens and tee boxes. Fairways were in nice shape
Like the course, not much else
We’ve played this course before and liked it. Nice layout, lots of water on the front, but can be avoided for the most part by the average golfer. HATE the pace of play at 5 hours. Also hate the golf etiquette displayed by many foursomes. Twice carts from adjacent fairways dashed onto our fairway while we were on the tee box, requiring us to wait while they found their ball. Also, a large and loud group of 4 or 5 foursomes were finishing on 18 while we were on the nearby 10th tee box. No one seem to care about waiting for us to tee off before celebrating their rounds. We may play this course again, but never again on the weekend.
Give it another another 30 days
Greens bumpy, course seems to be way behind in the area in regard to total course conditioning .
Except for $5 for a 12oz beer. lots of water on the palm course. Overall fun place to play. Played several times. Staff is friendly.
A good winter play!
The Palm course has beautiful views, the layout is both playable and challenging, and very enjoyable. It has lots of water, however it’s often not in play. The sand on the other hand might! The only negative is the attraction of water birds to the course...sooo many geese and others! Course maintenance seems to be able to keep the greens relatively clean, but there’s poop everywhere else!
Very nice course. Lots of water but not daunting. Will be back.
A thinking layout.
Haven't played here in awhile. Don't know why. I will be back if I can find a reasonable deal.
Course is well manicured. Scoreable if u can stay dry especially on the front. even though there's mucho aqua there. There is room to work around the water. It's not a narrow layout by any means.
A couple small things did irk me though. First, the cart was dirty. It needed a hose down. Poor first impression. Second, the pin placements were brutal.
Just ok nothing spectacular
They had a little rain yesterday and made you stick to the cart path for the whole round. This slows things down and only a few spots where water was noticeable. Could have told us to stay in the rough only at the very least.
McCormick Ranch Palm Course
I always enjoy playing McCormick Ranch. They have two courses here and they are both very enjoyable, while very different types of courses. The staff is always friendly. The course is usually in very nice condition. And it just makes for an enjoyable afternoon or morning on the golf course. I would highly recommend these courses to any avid golfer.
