Located in the desert just north of Phoenix and Scottsdale, the golf course at Quintero Golf Club is a challenge but with up to as many as nine tees per hole, it can accommodate golfers of all different abilities and handicaps. The rolling, desert terrain of the course features dramatic elevation changes for interesting play. The golf course's design has wide fairways and plenty of water hazards and sand bunkers. The most difficult hole is the par-5 8th hole, which plays uphill with three large bunkers alongside the right side of the lay-up area. Another difficult but noteworthy hole is Quintero Golf Club's third, which has a scenic lake to the left that sometimes tricks golfers into playing close to it with their tee shot for an easier second shot to the green.

Gorgeous layout!

Course was well maintained and great layout! You are out in the desert with all natural surroundings. Greens were fast but true.
Only negative was the sand traps were more stone than sand. I was in a lot of them!

Great course layout

Was really looking forward to playing the course. When we arrived we were told that they were delayed by 90 minutes due to frost. Told us they sent out emails which was a bold face lie. 10 other people we asked didn’t get an email either.

Made no attempt to accommodate us for another day. The course was a little beat up. Greens and Tee boxes were bare in spots. Bunkers had stones in them.

So overall I was disappointed when paying the rates we did.

Sand traps

If you’re gonna have that many sand traps out there put some real sand in them. There’s a bunch of stone in the bunkers.

Breathtaking

What can I say that hasn't already been said about this masterpiece. The amount of effort and creativity that had to go into the creation of this place should be a documentary. Greens were running 11+ . The only blemish was the condition of the bunkers. It was only so noticeable because everything else was so perfect.

Beautiful Course

First time playing Quintero on the recommendation of a business associate and it turned out to be everything he said it would be. The course is beautifully cut into the mountains with a couple extremely elevated tee boxes on the par 3s which were a blast. It would be a challenging course to walk. The course conditions were per perfect. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Even the Javelina we ran into were in a good mood and enjoying the day. Playing this course will take a time investment (its in the middle of nowhere) and will set you back a few bucks (its not inexpensive) but it is well worth it for the playing experience. I plan on making this a regular stop in the rotation of courses I play.

Extremely challenging

Conditions were outstanding, this course is well taken care of. Maintenance is out filling divots with mix in the middle of rounds. Tee boxes were flat and cut the perfect length. Greens were fast but consistent. They even edged all the cart paths. The only downside to this is that many greens were a decent walk from the cart, and the cart GPS limited you from going into many parts of the course.

The course is tight so if you're not a straight hitter, good luck. Some greens and pin locations were extremely difficult to hit. There were at least 3 par 3s where you were 100+ feet elevated. There was an uphill par 5 into the wind with a divided fairway that forces you to hit 3 into the green. Bunkers everywhere, deep ones by the green, many in the fairway. Windy front 9.

9 minute tee time intervals meant a 5 hour round. Food was stupid expensive - $13 for a hot dog and chips. 7 minute drive from check in to the practice range. No cell phone reception so phone GPS apps won't work.

Unbelievable

My wife and I are recreational golfers, so this was at the top end of the challenge scale for us. Having said that, this course was by far the most beautiful and well manicured. course that I have ever played. The staff was incredibly friendly and professional, very helpful with information on any questions we had. The layout of this course is like something out of a fairytale. if you were looking to test your skills and have an experience, I highly recommend checking out Quintero.

Picture Perfect

As a recreational golfer just getting my swing back after laying off for a year, this course proved to be worth the time and money, no questions asked. The conditions were outstanding, course is pristine, greens were lightening fast and well groomed. Staff is professional and polite. We'll be back!
