About

Holes 18
Type Semi-Private
Style Desert/Traditional
Par 72
Length 7208 yards
Slope 147
Rating 74.9

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 have always wanted to play this course, but it is a little ways away from my home. I got a great deal on GolfNow and couldn't turn down the opportunity. The course is challenging and has a variety of holes and was in very good shape for the middle of the Arizona summer. There are elevation changes throughout the layout and you need to hit it pretty straight to score well. The greens are bent grass and very fast. I would definitely return to play again.

Worth the drive

It may take a little longer to get here, but I never remember the drive after I hit my first drive. The layout, variety of holes and elevation changes would be enough, but the course conditions on top of everything else make this one of the special courses in The Valley. Best group of par 3’s anywhere.

Great Golf Experience

Overall really liked the course. Conditions for this time of year were about as good as it gets. Fun layout that's fairly challenging but not too tricked out. Greens were a bit on the fast side, which I tend to prefer. Staff was friendly and helpful. The only thing that marred the round was the 2sum I was paired with. I appreciate they're enforcing slow play rules, but the Marshall needs to make sure he's talking to the right people. I'm not hitting 2 off the tee 75% of the time, or spending an inordinate amount of time in the desert looking for my wayward tee shots, nor am I going to speed up my play because I was paired up with a couple hackers who are playing from the wrong tee box.

Great Course

Played this course for the first time with 2 friends. Great layout, challenging, but fair. The only downside was the pace of play. A twosome in front of us would play the farthest back tees, even if they were closed, and didn’t hit very well. After leaving the green they would sit in the cart 2-3 minutes before taking off to the next tee box. Frustrating to say he least. No ranger on the course to politely move groups along.

Great course ... no amenities

This is a really nice track and well worth playing. The course was in terrific condition and is set in some beautiful foothills ... lots of elevation changes. Don't be afraid to select a tee that matches a slope you are comfortable with, as its a challenging course. If you can hit the ball high, the greens will hold a shot. There are a number of approaches to elevated greens and not a lot of run-up options. Other than golf, there are virtually no amenities - just a tiny clubhouse with a limited menu snack bar & small outdoor patio. There is nothing else around for 40 mins in either direction ... not even a gas station. But the course is excellent and worth the drive..

Must play!

I was in Scottsdale for my brothers 40th birthday and this was by far my favorite course I played! It's challenging, but fair without anything gimmicky. The checkin was seamless and Tyler was extremely welcoming in the clubhouse. He explained everything in detail and truly cared about me having a great time on the course. The scenery is amazing and the course is in excellent condition. The beverage girl came by frequently, carts were stocked with water and brand new gps. The holes were even painted white. Range and practice facility was awesome too. I'm a tough reviewer and couldn't find any faults with this place. They have put their money into the course and it shows. My advice is to take an extra club on uphill shots. If you are on the fence about driving out there it's a must play and I will definitely be back!!!

One of the most stunning courses in the world, staffed by mean old men

I’m torn about writing this review because, on one hand, Quintero is an absolutely stunning place to play golf. I’ve played it a couple of times and its alway beatiful. On the other hand, the rangers and starter seemed to be resentful that we took the time to come play golf there. There are comfort stations, water and beverage carts on the course, but if you stop to use any of them, the rangers will immediately hound you to catch up. It seems their goal is not to make your round as enjoyable as possible, but as brief as possible.

Awesome Layout in Great Condition

Fantastic course that lives up to the hype. Great views and very interesting layout with lots of elevation change. Best course Ihave played during our two months in AZ. Highly recommend.

Only bummer was that the round took five hours. Way to slow.

Spectacular

Quintero was absolutely spectacular. We had an hour frost delay and everyone seemed to handle it well. The layout and course condition was amazing. I will be back. If you are in Phoenix area this is a must see place.

Beware of Quintero

I was very disappointed with Quintero Golf Club. Beware of their 48 hour cancellation provision. I booked a tee time two weeks in advance. On February 21st the weather in the Phoenix area was horrible. As I watched heavy rain and temperatures in the 30s turn to thunderstorms, hail and eventually snow, i determined that for the health and safety of a senior citizen that I would not be able to play, and assumed that the course would be closed as well. I called the course and they indicated that they were remaining open. Due to their 48 hour cancellation policy my credit card was charged for the full amount of the three tee times I had booked. Due to this policy, the course would be able to collect their money regardless of whether people played the course as long as they did not close the course. I respect the need to charge a cancellation fee for no shows or late cancellations, but there should be some leeway or discretion to allow common sense to come into play. I would recommend you avoid Quintero. Desirable tee times need to be booked weeks ahead of time and there is no way to safely predict the weather, resulting in the loss of hundreds of dollars.
