The Pine Course at the McCormick Ranch Golf Club offers mature pines, in an appropriate contrast to its sibling golf course, the Pine Course, and is also narrower than the other golf course. What they have in common include the facts that Desmond Muirhead designed both of them and they both date back to 1972; recent renovations have also given both golf courses new greens, sand traps and bridges.

The Pine at McCormick Ranch Golf Club measures 7,187 yards, kicking off on a 398-yard par 4 that requires tee shot toward the fairway's center, leaving golfers a mid- to short-iron from the green, which slopes narrowly. Things get long by the fourth hole, one of four par-5 holes that come in at over 500 yards; this one, for example, makes you place your drive well toward right-center if you want to shoot for it in two. Close out the round of golf on the 18th hole, another long one, at 517 yards from the blue tees, and a tight hole to drive that will, thankfully, provide your last test for the day.

It's a really well-designed track. The tees and the rough are spotty and the traps are lacking soft sand. Those are negatives. But the greens and the fairways are in really good shape

Again the course is in great shape and the staff was very accommodating but the pace of play was so bad I just left and didn’t even finish my round

Very Unprofessional

Staff was very pushy and was interested only in the money. Run them through and collect their $120.

Decent for cost

Wouldn’t go off of the pictures, course looks nothing like the ones available. Greens are the best aspect of the course and fairways and overall turf conditions are sub-par
