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.

Great course

I would have given it 5 stars, but the carts had to stay on cart paths. Fast greens. Fairways in excellent condition. Staff was so friendly.

Nice course

This is my second time playing this course, and I would once again come back. The greens were fast and true! The cost is a little steep for a course off the beaten path, but it is fun and challenging,

Excellent course

Quintero is an excellent course with very challenging layout and difficulties. It’s a long drive from Scottsdale but worth the drive. Course is kept in an excellent condition with lush fairways, fast greens and you can choose from 6 different combination of tees. Views are excellent and the course will test all your golf skills. Temp was in mid 90s in mid August but muggy. Service in the pro-shop and in the cafe was good. The only complain is slow pace as it took 5 hrs to play all 18 holes as threesome. Practice area is one of the best in AZ. Sand bunkers were little harder and that could be bc of recent rain. Overall, I enjoyed this course and would definitely go again.

A True Gem

A must play if you’re in the Scottsdale/Phoenix area. The course was in excellent condition. The greens were receptive but fast and fairways lush. You will not be disappointed.

Quintero Stay and Play

Last year we played Quintero and noticed these beautiful condos on the course. We found out they were for stay and play.. So we decided, when we wanted a few days to recharge we would try them. Brian handled the details and was stellar. Checking in was easy, the condos are great and spacious. They bring your carts to the condos so it is easy for the 5 minute drive up the mountain to the first tee. Let me tell you, this course is Amazing!!!! Hard but fair,do not get in the traps.(Really). Greens roll true,fairways in great shape,and jaw dropping beauty on every hole. About halfway through the round the ranger comes by with ice cold Mango infused towels to cool you off!!! As you drive back down after your round you are greated in perfect timing by the golf course personnel who have wLked to your condo to hand you and ice water and clean your clubs,just over the top!! From the starter to the Pro shop, to the grill and the facilities, you are treated like royalty.. We will be back, and our family from Michigan is coming back too!! Best course we have ever played,thank you!!!

Not Fair today ....bummed

I have played this course several times over the last few years as it is highly challenging and very fair. Paid $79 on June 17 (118 degrees) for my round today and although I love this course, I was highly disappointed in the greens as they had been aerated and sanded the previous week. When I made my tee time there was no message or warning the greens (the entire course fo that matter) had been aerated. Staff explained that Golfnow was aware and there was a message on the course web page, Went back to check Quintero's and Golfnow web sites and there was no indication the course was or had been aerated. I had to not only "arm twist" my friend to drive an extra hour to play this course, but after playing, I also offered to pay for his round. I understand maintenance on courses necessary, but my hope is course staff would be upfront on the current condition. For same price or less, we could driven half the distance to play Wildfire, Boulders, Kierland, TPC Champions, or another Troon course to have a similar golf experience. In a nutshell, the course and staff are typically rock solid, but $79 for June golf at any course should be pretty solid. Today, the course was worth $29 as there were way too many approach shots that splashed sand and 5' zig zag puts, UGH!!!!!!

Staff tolerates drunk aggressive golfers

Frankly, staff does not care about golf environment. We were a little surprised (pleasantly) by policy of “don’t tee off on Par 4’s until group in front of you is on the green.” We then got hit into in the middle of the 12th fairway (par 4) and called staff to let them know. Talked to two different marshals. No one followed up. At end of round, group behind us pulled up to where bag crew were cleaning our clubs and were unapologetic and belligerent about what had happened. Staff did not care. Many groups on this course had music playing in their carts during the round. If you are going to care about dress code, outside food and drink, and charge $100+ per round, you need to act like a professionally managed course. Tell me that group behind us has been banned from the course and I’ll change my review.

It’s always nice to play at Quintero

Staff were very friendly. Course is not in the best shape as it is expected at this time of the year, some brown spot can be seen. There is an aerification alert in place. Players needs to be aware that greens do not have true roll.
