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.

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.
this is a great location and golf course layout.after playing this course for many years it is time to never return. the course refuses to get rid of the tons of goosepoop all over the place
I am sure if they dealt with the goose problem their rounds would improve a lot.a few friends of mine that used to golf their earned us not to go there. they were right.with all the infections etc this is also a health issue.too bad for McCormick.
Very nice Course
I actually played the Pine Course as they said it was open. Course was in very good condition. Had a great time.
Greens in terrible condition
Pock marked greens. Very slow play. Marshals on course but no improvement
Slow Day on the course
Round took five hours and not a Marshall in sight. Waited 10 minutes on most tee boxes. Greens were rock hard. Could not even hold well struck gap wedge.
Slow play and rough greens
Loved the layout and practice facilities. Greens need to be punched and sanded to get rid of ball marks. Pace of play was brutal!!
Conditions not the best
If off the fairway, your ball sits on dead hard dirt and impossible to hit from. Fairways were ok and greens decent but course looks ugly and plays poorly because of the dead grass and horrible sand/dirt in bunkers. Not 100 bucks worth for sure! Try another place
Poor first impression and unfair lies
Our first impression of the course was shaped by the condition of the golf cart. A busy day and obviously the cart had been just in service. But not cleaned at all for us. The floor was covered in dirt, there were no tees, the steering wheel was filthy . For a higher end course the Cart had a torn seat and there was no wind screen. It did have a GPS. We played in 4 hours 30 minutes. We waited on every hole. Several of the fairways and greens slope into the water, so even if you hit md fairway or green your ball is lost. There are better courses for less money in the area.
Very Tough Greens
Found greens very hard, balls bouncing hard and rolling off back
A 5 hour round at a resort course is ridiculous. The cart guys’ are only interested in the tips. I had to load and unload my clubs
Was not impressed at all
A friend and I played the Palm course for $90 each and we expected much more than the course offered. Good luck finding your way around the course between holes. The “cart side” signage is sparse at best. The fairways and greens were in decent shape but the rough was dead. It was very difficult to get a decent shot out of the brown, dead rough. We played at another local course the day before and would play that course again over this one any day of the week. Don’t waste your money.
