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.

Unreal conditions this time of year!

I’m an avid golfer and play all around Phoenix year around. This time of year (early July) it’s almost impossible to find true running greens as most courses punch and sand them. I was floored how fast and true they were rolling. Aside from the greens the entire course was in great shape. Incredible views that are matched with some holes you have to put some thought into if you want to score well. The par 3’s are second to none.

Definitely worth the drive!

The scenery is awesome, the course conditions were not the best. Primarily the bunkers lacked adequate sand.

Quintero

I've been golfing Quintero since it first opened as a private cllub. Even though I live over in North Scottsdale and belong to a golf club there, I still make the trip to Quintero several times a year to play the course. It is one of my favorites in the area.

Views!

This course is one the best public courses you can play. The views and layout are unreal and are fun for all golfers. I highly recommend making a trip up here to see for yourself!

Great Experience

Quintero feels like it is out in the middle of nowhere, probably because there is truth to that. I'd heard good things about Quintero and finally got the chance to play. The course condition was impeccable. There was literally not a blade of grass out of place. The greens had been punched a few weeks previous, but it had no impact on playability, although we were warned that they were playing a bit slower than usual. They were still slippery and fast but putted beautifully.

If you can't drive it straight, bring a spare bag of balls because you may very well need them. Having said that, the fairways tend to have bunkers protecting the edges of the fairways in your landing zone, so that helps keep the white orb on the earth. The bunkers were in perfect condition and it is impossible to get a bad lie on the fairways. As other reviews point out, the par threes are really something, all playing from elevated tees to generous greens. Really beautiful. I played the par threes two under, only because I dropped a couple unlikely putts from way downtown.

Summer rates made it a bargain to play. I will definitely be going back for more!

Simply a Great Course

This is the kind of course you save for a special day. The setting is spectacular, the course is a major challenge for all levels of player, and the fairways and greens are in superior condition despite this being the dead of summer here In Arizona. The par fours are a huge challenge as they are predominantly uphill. With each pushing 400 yards from the silver tees, every shot has to count. Each of the par 3s is a treat. Two involve elevated tees, two involve carrying over water and one is a stretch just to make you hit it pure. This is definitely one of my favorite courses here in Arizona despite being a course that has handed me my lunch on more than one occasion.

Bring Bail Money

seriously great course, Staff is very snooty and manager Chad was worse. After explaining our issue, he decided rather than work to fix the problem it would be easier to deny me the general managers name the first 5 times i asked then decided it would be easier to tell me I am o longer welcome there and he was calling the police. I begged for him to do so but instead closed the door in my face. I'm 51 years old and have played golf most of my life and by far this was the worst experience I've had on a golf course. Do yourself and your friends a favor and skip playing this course

Good course

The course is in good shape for summer. The greens were recently aerated and are almost done healing up. A little bit longer and some water and they'll be fine. Most of the fairways were in very good shape although some of the fairways were wet. The worst one was the hole that goes up the hill. The ball hit the wet fairway and stopped dead. Made the hole a lot longer. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only comment I would make is to the maintenance crews. I realize you have to mow and I do appreciate that you will stop to let the golfers though, but if you are between the golfer and the target you are in the way. Please move to one side or the other.

Great Day

The course is incredible. The par 3's in particular are stunning and the elevation changes and different views around the course are amazing. The food we had while playing was also great and the weather was fabulous. Only complaint was the overall interaction with the staff at the golf course. Upon arrival everything seemed a little rushed and they assumed you had been there before and knew the ropes. Not the friendliest in the world and then they sent you off on your 10 minute golf cart ride up the hill to the driving range. Overall a great day though and would encourage anyone willing to make the 45 minute drive north of Phoenix to do so and play this track.

Play it twice. Once you play it you’ll understand. Worth the drive from Scottsdale/ Phoenix area.
