McCormick Ranch was started as an active ranch in 1942 by Merle Chaney and sold to the McCormick's in the mid-40's. It was the last large ranch located in the City of Scottsdale.
The transformation of the McCormick's Ranch was based on a master plan developed by Gruen Associates of Los Angeles and Scottsdale Environmental Planners and Consultants. Development began with infrastructure and amenities. The amenities had a dual purpose by providing aesthetics, which included two championship 18-hole golf courses, more than 25 miles of bicycle paths, public tennis courts, 130 acres of man-made lakes, two of which can be used for sailing and several that are stocked with fish.
