Arizona Golf Course Review

McCormick Ranch Pine Course 06

General information

McCormick Ranch Golf Club features two Desmond Muirhead-designed 18-hole championship courses, along with fine amenities that make this property one of the top golf destinations in Scottsdale. The clubhouse features a gorgeous, fully stocked pro shop (recognized as one of the "Top 20 daily fee pro shops in the country" by Golf Operations Magazine), locker rooms with showers, a wonderful restaurant open for breakfast and lunch (with an outdoor patio), plus banquet/outing facilities.

The courses are both over 7000 yards long, and are known for hosting the Arizona Amateur Stroke Play Championship, the Golf for Women National Championship, the Arizona Open Professional Golf Tournament, and the National Junior College Golf Championship. On property are a spacious grass driving range, a bunkered chipping green, plus one of Southwest Arizona's largest putting greens. McCormick Ranch has over 100 sets of club and shoe rentals, and the teaching staff is expertly trained.

Each of the two courses is well marked, with yardage indicators every 25 yards from 200 to 75 yards in. Uniquely, these fairway yardage blocks also provide measurements to the front and back of the green as well. Color coded flags indicate front, middle and back pin placements on the medium sized, mildly undulating putting surfaces. Ice chests are standard on all carts.

The Pine Course is characterized by narrow tree-lined fairways with mature pines in abundance. The green complexes are a bit less raised and more accessible than those on the Palm Course, making the Pine a little more playable for the average golfer. There are 50 soft sand bunkers located near the landing zones on the manicured fairways, or situated on either side of the greens. Five holes have water in play, with forced carries to the green complexes on numbers six and fifteen. Though there is room in front, the 15th is nearly entirely surrounded by water.

Four sets of tee boxes play to distances and slopes measuring 7187 yards/135 slope, 6371 yards/132 slope, 5993 yards/125 slope for men and 125 for women, and 5333 yards with a slope of 120 for ladies playing from the forward tees. As these yardages indicate, there is ample opportunity (and necessity) to use drive off the tee. There are a few challenging doglegs, but the general layout is pretty much straight forward. Hit for distance while keeping it on the fairways and avoiding the plentiful pines and good scores can be had.

On our April visit (as well as during previous rounds), we found the conditions from tee to green at McCormick Ranch to be outstanding. The service is efficient and friendly, the facilities are great, and the location cannot be much better. Both courses are traditional style layouts - which provide a contrast to the fine, challenging desert courses in the area. We highly recommend a round (and breakfast or lunch) at either course at McCormick Ranch. For more info, visit our page for the Pine course, with direct link to their website by clicking here.
