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.

Beautiful and Quiet

First time playing this course and we were not disappointed. The layout is challenging, but as long as you follow the tip sheet and keep in it play off the tee you will be fine. The course is beautiful and quiet, far away from the city. You will immediately notice the lack of ambient noise coming from houses, traffic, and other city noises which was very pleasant. Fairways were nice a short, bunkers were fluffy and easy to hit out of, and greens were fast but predictable. The greens definitely sped up as they dried out. Overall, conditions were excellent. Other than the wonderful course itself, the best part about Quintero is the superior management and employees running the course. This was the most efficiently run course I have ever played. Marshals were all over the course, but were not intrusive, which resulted in our foursome completing our round in 4 hours flat. Great experience, I look forward to playing here again.

All hype

Weird course design. They lean heavily on the elevated par 3’s. Really not sure how this is a top 100 track. Front 9 is just ok, back 9 leaves a lot to desire. The closing holes 17 and 18 are very boring. Then a 10 min cart ride back to the pro shop really just leaves you thinking “why did this cost $200?” On the other hand, everyone at the course was so friendly. Starter was great, folks in the pro shop were great, cart guys had popsicles for us after the round. Great food too. The turkey club was killer!

Great Course

One group in front of us made it a 5 hour round. Didn't see a ranger until 14th hole.

Still a great day. Wonderful course. Too expensive, but I understand you have to support the course. Dont hit the middle of green, you will roll off the back! Quick, hard greens.

Avoid

Been here dozens of times. Never going back. For the price it’s easily not worth the price. Not even close. The greens were slow and bumpy. At 9:30 am! Bunkers wildly inconsistent. The range balls sucked, too. No dimples. Dirty. Way better options down here, now. Too bad.

Badgered by the staff for fake slow play

Staff (including pro near the end of 18) interrupted our play and harassed our 4 some for playing slow. After reaching the course , on time r for 9am, we were told there was a 60 min frost delay. In 40 minutes they came down to the range and told us to tee off, which we did. 5 times during our course of play they harassed us for being slow - the group in front was always a hole ahead, and we rarely saw the group behind - they were a solid hole behind. The older father/son pairing weee so furious with the harassment, we honestly thought a fight was going to break out. Great course, but there was no reason for the continual intrusions for our play - shot a 40 on the front nine, so we weren’t playing slow . Want a refund for our round - pathetic the course employees behaved in such an Ill manner and ruined the day - a very expensive day on the course.

Spectacular Course

I was able to play the course for $160 on a mid-day Monday.. The course is absolutely gorgeous and perfectly manicured from tee box to green. Each hole held a spectacular view of the landscape. The greens were fast, true and fair. We got behind a few groups at the turn but the pace was still very good. This course earned its top honors for a good reason!

Excellent golf with amazing views.

Worth the drive out…staff was amazing. The course, including practice area, was in tour level condition. Elevated tee boxes added to the experience, above and beyond the norm often found on a desert golf course.
