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.

Worth the drive. The golf course is really strong, in amazing condition and better value in my opinion that Troon, We-Ko-Pa etc.

The pace of play was slow, but we were happy.

Probably one of the top 3 courses I've ever played. Fairways manicured to perfection. Greens were hard and extremely fast. Enough sets of tees and combos to bite off exactly how much you want. We saw a ranger on our way to the 10th hole who said the back 9 should move quicker but the exact opposite happened. 2 hrs 45mins for 9 is not acceptable and caused by 2 groups who visited the desert often, looked for balls that they could not play, and did not play ready golf. Would definitely go back, and the 2 for 1 rate on Sundays after 1:30 in April made this an extremely good value.

I was traveling to Phoenix and found this course through Golf advisor. I booked a tee time which turned out to be the first group off. Played with a Father and Son that were both great and we played in under 3 hours for 18! Course was in great shape, greens were firm so you have to play for an extra bounce but that was consistent so it was very playable. Staff was amazing and Made me feel welcomed both at the start and throughout the round. Next time I'm in the area I will definitely play this course again.

One other cool thing was the wild burros and lots of Quail and rabbits running around... has nothing to do with golf but was still very cool to see.

For anyone who loves golf this is a must play. The views, course layout and condition are world class and I mean truly amazing . Unfortunately the day we played was a 5+ hour round. No reason for that as they did have marshals on the course. This is the most scenic and well designed high desert golf course I have seen. it is out in the middle of nowhere so be advised that you need to have lead time to get there. Well worth it though provided pace of play is better. they did give us a credit toward future play when we complained so that says something.

Don't get me wrong it is a wonderful course but shouldn't be number one in Arizona. And Arizona is known for over charging any course you play. This course was very challenging. It is worth the experience, however for the price range in peak season I would not go back. I would say fair price for this course is $60-$90. I am able to say I play Quintero and that is is a beautiful course, but I wouldn't say number one in Arizona. The views are worth the drive.

Course advice: You will be paying to shoot one of your worst rounds. What ever tees you think you should go from, go one up. Keep driver in you're bag for a lot of the holes 3 wood or hybrid are smart plays.

I've not played a ton of golf in the Phoenix area, but I think this course has to belong on a "must play" list. Its a little more difficult than the average course with its elevation changes, but there weren't forced carries that I would call unreasonable as long as you select the proper tee boxes.

Only downfall was there had been a little rain the night before and they restricted us to cart path only even though the course didn't seem wet at all (sunridge canyon and verrado were wetter and we could drive on fairways there).

during our recent trip we played southern dunes, estrella, victory, quintero, sunridge canyon and las sendas. I would rate this with the best of the bunch in views and layout and condition (sunridge and estrella were at the bottom for condition as the rough didn't exist and was matted down to essentially be dirt like). I rated the value as average because the course is expensive and its worth what you pay, but its as much or more than most guest fees at really good country clubs in the area.

Overall it was a great experience and I'll play it again when I'm in the area.

Quintero was about 45 minutes from Cave Creek and was an easy drive. Its best to get there a little early because its a few minute cart ride to the driving range and the start of the golf course. There are no houses visible on the course and its hilly and very scenic

All of the employees were professional, courteous and helpful.

There are 5 sets of tees and combinations of them ranging from 5043 yards to 7249 yards and a slope rating of 148.

The par 3's on this course are all pretty long even though they are downhill so I would say look at those yardages when deciding which tees to play.

A ball must be hit high to stay on the greens, low balls and low chips will definitely roll out and its best to play to the fat part of these very fast greens.

Our pace slowed a little on the back but it was a 4:15 round. There were water bottles in the cart, water on the course, a food and beverage station, and a cart girl that we saw numerous times.The GPS in the cart was very useful for this course. All in all a very fun and challenging course to play.

This is one of 6 courses we played during an annual golf trip to Phoenix with 7 of my colleagues.

The course and amenities are fantastic, but my buddy had his clubs stolen from the bag drop after the round. The clubs were handed over to the staff following our round and when we went to leave (30 minutes later) they were nowhere to be found.

Even though he was assured by the staff on duty that the course would take full responsibility to replace the stolen items, more than 2 weeks have now passed and he's still fighting for resolution and a commitment from the course management that they will in fact replace the full value of the clubs, estimated at over $3,500.

Great course but it's a shame that they aren't willing to step up and take responsibility for something that was their fault, especially considering the cost of the green fees.

I was very impressed with the layout of the course. It cut through the desert so inconspicuously. The fairways and tee boxes were in fantastic shape. The rough was non existent and the greens were cut way too short. The fringe around the greens served as a border, twice the ball careened off the fringe wall back onto the green. Because the greens were so short they were incredibly hard making it difficult to stick. Several good shots bounced through.

When we arrived we were greeted by the outside staff, in the proshop we were well informed of the facility... we were told it's a mile from proshop to 1st tee/practice facility it was a gorgeous scenic mile and when we got there everything is lush green couldn't ask for better conditions greens were on point ran 13 on stempmeter fairways were amazing stripes all day! I loved the track too many holes to pick a favorite. Pace of play was great even had time to hit some more balls after the round I would Definetly come back those conditions are second to none!
