About

Holes 18
Par 72
Length 7208
Slope 147
Rating 74.9
Type Semi-Private
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.

This is a very nice course in pretty good shape right now Dec13.

Couple of the greens are a little patchy on the outside.

This course is a little drive out of town and I think it is overpriced.

A True Masterpiece

From the very beginning this course wowed me. One of the most spectacular driving ranges followed by an incredible course that can be a true challenge. I would maybe say my one complaint was green speeds were ludicrously fast, almost tournament speed, and the challenge it took to even hit the green let alone having to 3-putt several times does take a toll on the scorecard, but it is without a doubt the prettiest desert course i've ever played

Loved the course layout - greens too severe

Breathtaking views from many elevated tees, Sonoran desert views, challenging hole layouts. Pace of play was a bit slow at almost 5 hours and greens were fast with many pin positions set on sloped lies which made putting a challenge. I would go back in a heart beat though and highly recommend the course. I'm sure the second time I play it would be better with more knowledge of where to hit shots and give more respect to the severity of the greens.

Great course with scenic holes all around

Our second time playing this course, one of the best in the Phoenix area. Elevated tees, beautiful scenery, original hole designs, lots of tee options for all players, in-cart GPS and club/ball-washers. You can't go wrong with Quintero.

Beware, a few holes are harder than they look, and the greens are lightning-fast. Also, 18 faces against the setting sun, a tiny downside for a later tee time. These small quirks aside, this is a fantastic course, and if you get a chance to play it, your answer should always be YES.

Be a Man

I forgot to cancel three tee times and the guy in the shop said he would waive them even though it is not their policy. I have the emails showing he waived them. Thought that was very nice and appreciated it. Then the "GM" comes out to the range to tell me that is not their policy, but they are not going to charge us. Later we get to about the 7th hole and he sends out some random guy asking for a credit card to charge us and give us three passes. Here is the issue, don't tell us you are going to waive it and then aren't man enough to come out and say you changed your mind!! Don't send out some poor guy to explain it for you. I appreciate the fact that they gave us the passes but not the way you should handle business.

Hopefully over time you will learn to handle this situation better!!

Best course you can play near Scottsdale

This course is always well manicured. The greens are fast and true and the breaks are nuanced. Play the elevated par 3’s from the gold tees just to enjoy the views. The course design is superb, blending almost every hole into the scenic surroundings. Don’t worry about scoring - just enjoy the course. My goal is just to par the dogleg par 5 #8 each season. You won’t find a nicer course in Scottsdale unless you’re a member at Desert Mountain or Tatum Ranch

Special golf course

Quintero is a gem. Very beautiful, well maintained and no two holes feel the same. I try to play this course every time I get to Scottsdale. It is well worth the 40 minute drive.

My favorite Arizona course

If you live in Arizona or are planning a visit, playing Quintero is a must! I golf year round and this place is at the top of my list. Nothing beats a desert course and it is so much fun to play. Once you play, you will see why it is a top 100 course.

Best golf course in Arizona!

Best golf course in Arizona! It is the perfect mix of a fun challenging golf course and the desert landscape is hard to beat. A group of my friends and I stayed at the luxury condos on property and had a private chef make the most amazing food. Truly an amazing experience overall.

Best in the West

Quintero was the last "west valley" course I needed to try and it did not disappoint. The greens are shockingly good for this time of year and the fairways had very minimal burned spots. This golf course is a second shot course, the fairways are wide and forgiving but you better be precise with your approach. Great layout with a few very elevated par 3s. If I had to give some criticism it would be the bunkers. They had some decent sized pebbles in them and could use some more sand. Also this course is in the middle of nowhere, so plan accordingly. Will absolutely be back.
