Desert terrain doesn’t come into play on either course; however, amazing views of Camelback Mountain may be seen from either golf course.

The Palm course at McCormick Ranch Golf Club is a traditional style golf course named for its mature Palm trees that line the golf course. Its oasis like setting features 10 water holes surrounded by large trees. The fairways are wide; however, bunkers are strategically placed throughout requiring some accuracy at times.

The Pine course McCormick Ranch Golf Club is also a traditional style golf course named for its mature abundance of Pine trees. The fairways are narrower on this course and more tree-lined. There is some water that comes into play; however, not quite as much as on its sister course. Pine is considered slightly more player friendly with the layout of the greens, which are more accessible. The average golfer will feel more at ease of this course.
