Horrible management and six hour plus rounds
The golf management could care less about players having a good golf experience but are only interested in big groups and maximizing their income. Our small group was placed behind an 88 player shotgun resulting in six hour plus rounds of golf for us with multiple groups on every tee box. The management knew of this, in fact created this situation, and did nothing to remedy the situation. Basically the response was yes its bad but oh well. STAY AWAY FROM THIS FACILITY there are much better courses with far better and caring golf course management.
Great value at McCormick Ranch!
Staff were welcoming and helpful and course is doing well after overseeding. We enjoyed our round and really liked the back nine, which has a lot of character!
Slowest round I have ever played!!!
I understand that it is a Saturday and only
One course was open. The problem was allowing 2 groups ahead of us to have female entertainment in there group that brought play to a halt. It took nearly 3 hours to play the back nine. I would have to think long and hard before I spent the time and money to play here again. I was also playing with my wife who found the entire experience offensive.
It was ok
Played early in the morning, so the pace of play was naturally very good. But it was cart path only which actually slowed things way down. I wish I just walked since it was not hot. They are trying to prepare the course for the season. Having said that the rough was really difficult. We hit a few balls in the rough and could not find them. That was annoying. The fairways were thick for fairways as well, so not that much roll. The greens were too slow on most holes. Especially when comparing to the practice greens. If they cut the lawn this course would be much better. Maybe 1 or 2 weeks it will be good. Can’t rate high now.
Course required smart play. We had cart path only but it was in great shape. Greens were a little slow. Tee boxes weren't cut down yet but playable.
Long grass everywhere
Every time I play here I leave with the same feeling. The grass is too long. The fairway are like light rough and most courses, the tee boxes have way too much grass on them, and the greens are inconsistent.
For some reason the bartender in the restaurant is very unpleasant, and that didn’t have much to do with my golf experience but I was bothered by it. I remember I had a similar experience with her from a wedding a few years ago.
The practice area is pretty spacious.
I wish I had more positives to share.
Pro shop staff good.
Initial greeting by starter staff, gruff and barely helpful and seemed put out that he was there and more interested in chatting with other employees rather than answer a simple question. Mounted the golf bag incorrectly on the cart which would match his dis-interest.
Driving range a little chewed up. Practice Putting greens great shape, as were the course greens.
Tee boxes were in good shape as were the fairways. The rough is cut long enough for the ball to sisappear making a slightly errant shot to the edge of the rough an exercise in futility. Come on, cut the rough to a level that doesn;t punish the player and slow down play.
We were a twosome that caught up with a fivesome on the back nine...now how stupid is that? Finished the back nine on Palm while starting on the Pine course.
All in all it is a nice course and would come back as well as recommend....but only at Hot Deal prices.
Muddy sand traps
Year after year I play both the Palm and Pine and no matter what the weather conditions there are alwaysmultiple traps that that have water in them or are just muddy
Horrible Playing conditions
The bunkers were full of water, no signage to tell you were next hole is, the rough is like wild grass, could not see the lines of fairway, second cut and rough. No cart person. Very over rated
hot and humid course in good shape
Pine course is in good shape, greens rolled true and they are letting the rough grow.
Boring, if not Forgiving
McCormick Ranch Golf Club is set within an area of Scottsdale that caters to the older and retired crowd. This course reflects that. It’s open, straightforward, repetitive, and simple. You won’t lose many balls or get into many tricky situations, but if you’re out with your buddies you’ll have a good enough time. Bottom line, it’s cheap, easy, and the staff are friendly. I won’t play her again if it’s up to me, but I’d tag along for another round.
Course was in good condition; starter said that the summer grass was just starting to grow in as the weather was starting to heat up. Will play again!
Started with the shop not having the tee time in their system ... showed them my golfnow confirmation and they worked us in.
Slow play and the course was in awful condition.
