History of the McCormick Ranch
The McCormick Ranch has had a long and prosperous history that began in the 1940’s. The ranch was initially bought by the McCormick’s, Fowler and Anne for the purpose of breeding and raising Arabian horses. In fact, it was Anne McCormick, who through her love of the Arabian breed had helped establish the All Arabian Show in Scottsdale.
The original McCormick Ranch has gone through many changes since its early beginnings. Scottsdale’s McCormick Stillman Railroad Park was donated by Anne McCormick back in 1967. The entire ranch was later sold in 1970 and was developed into what is now known as the McCormick Ranch. Notably, it’s one of the earliest master planned communities within the valley.
Changes that Turned an Arabian Ranch into a Master Planned Community
Developing McCormick Ranch was done by utilizing the land that was already present. The ponds surrounding the old horse stables were turned into man-made lakes, stocked with several different fish species. The golf courses were built along areas surrounded by mature trees. Finally, trails were added to allow residents the luxury of walking, jogging or biking through the ranch.
Golfing within the McCormick Ranch
McCormick Ranch has two public golf courses named after the mature trees within the area; the Palm Golf Course and the Pine Golf Course. Both 18 hole courses provide Camelback Mountain views. These courses have been designed with many parks setting features, including landscaping, established trees and manicured green grass.
