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.

A little remote but worth the drive

Quintero is a Troon managed course which definitely lives up to expectations. Rees Jones did an excellent job of carving out a great course from the high Sonoran desert. A few tight holes which favor the straight hitters but, generally very generous landing areas. A good approach to the undulating bent-grass greens will hold and then provide a smooth roll to the cup for that birdie putt !

12 on the stemp

The course was immaculate but the greens were lightning fast with lots of slope. Hard to get it near the hole. Otherwise a perfect course.

Magnificent Golf Course

I heard it was a terrific course, but the drive to get there always dissuaded me from going. I won’t let that happen again. This place is pretty special with countless elevated tees and vistas to go on for miles and can take your breath away. Fairways and greens were perfect. Plenty of water to drink on the course.

One caveat: bring your bug spray and maybe a fly swatter. The flies were a bit annoying. But I took that in stride as the course was, well, majestic. Play it.

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.
