More challenging than you think
Course is in fine shape and plays fairly. The greens pose a challenge with pin locations typically on graded areas.
Great courses great facility
McCormick Ranch is a great facility right in the heart of Scottsdale both the palm and pine course are excellent. I find a pint course slightly easier than the palm both have an excellent layout with lots of water on the front sides and varied terrain on the back The fairways are in excellent condition as well as the greens both courses offered multiple tea boxes for very skilled levels great staff service and facility at a great value for the money
First nice day after a few rainy days so the course was packed. Had a 12:30 T time and it took over 5 hours. Front nine we waited one or two groups at each tee box. Back nine was a lot better. Due to the rain, carts were restricted to paths which slowed play as well. Pine course is challenging. It's a good public play course but don't expect it to be in pristine condition.
This course was pretty average my review is a little tainted for a few small issues. On arrival bag boys were great and helpful , check in was fine but I expect to be asked if this is our first time get a nice greeting and get an explanation of where things are , if there’s a starter or just listen for your name to be announced. More importantly if and where restrooms are on course ( I’m playing with my wife and this information is necessary). This didn’t happen . There are 2 courses here also so you need to know where to go. After asking bagboys ( great guys) we heard our name announced and went to tee, only to realize a six some teed off in front of us and we are a twosome..
After waiting on hole one they yelled we could play through but didn’t stand aside. I made a comment to cart girl on 2 and she had the Marshall come out and he got them to let us play through . So thank you there ! After that it was just all twosomes in front of us but no one wanted to partner up which I find weird . It actually helps the pass of play .
We then played through a twosome on back which sped things up .
All and all it was an average layout dormant rough ,greens rolled well , lots of water fowl and droppings in spots but didn’t inspire me to come back.
Course was in good shape. Bunkers could be groomed better and the greens have pitch marks but nothing unexpected for a public play course. .
Too many geese
McCormick Ranch (Pine Course) is a very nice facility. Greens are very good, traps groomed nicely and the fairways and tees were are well maintained.
From the blue tees it measures almost 7200 yards.
The geese are the only problem I have with McCormick Ranch. They are around most lakes and a number of fairways.
Tora Tora Tora day of play
I thought the layout was interesting. My concern is that The Pine Course needs more signage to expedite play for players who play the voursefor the first, I have peeve about all the geese that populate the course. Goose feces wa ubiquitous. For the price , it’s a good value.
Needs a facelift
Needs some care. Too many areas where grass bare. Greens ok. Need a ranger to move groups along. Too many twosome and singles which kept pace up and down. This early in season course should be in great shape...plays and looks like end of season overuse.
Thanks to your associate who allowed me to have a cart so I could drive to your handicap area to retrieve my clubs and other needed items though there was a cart shortage.
Thanks to your gracious and diligent staff
for a fast check-in, readily available range
balls, food and drink though it was very busy.
The course was in great shape.
Thanks for all your hard work in creating an
exceptional environment to play .
Thanks to God for everything else:
The weather was perfect.
The play was slow on the front nine but that was perfect for me. In addition to having my good friend along, we were paired with a friendly and helpful twosome. Though I played miserably, I wasn't angry.
Golf is the greatest game on Earth, but
I have finally learned it is not as important as my relationship with God, family or friends.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to
Good day but slow
Had a really nice round with some great people I joined as a single. Course is in good shape, some pin placements were challenging. Pace was slow but the ranger was out trying to move things along but he was fighting a losing battle. Like playing there, will play again often.
More of a parkland style golf course. Was good to get away from the desert courses. Would play this golf course again any day.
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.
