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.

I really like this challenging golf course, as it is always in top condition. The greens are a little slower in the Summer which makes them more receptive and which improves scoring. It is a 45-minute drive for me, so I only play there once or twice per month. Troon North and Boulders are in my backyard so I have other good choices. Quintero’s biggest challenges are it’s uphill holes with elevated greens. Be sure to pay attention to the course slope rating rather than the total yardage to select your tees maximize your golf experience. The day we played was slow due to a group of 16 seniors who were playing the course for the first time. It took 5+ hours, which is about an hour longer than I have ever experienced here before. The Marshall tried to light a fire under them but they were staying on the grounds for a few days so he didn’t want to run them off. We were given free beers and a discount golf coupon for our inconvenience, and I will continue to be a regular customer.

This is a premier course with the challenge to go with it. The surrounding terrain is exceptional, the course conditions are exceptional, the layout is very engaging and you will need your A-game to cut into this course. From challenging par 3s that demand precise shots from elevated tees to tough, uphill par 4s that demand you get the most out of each shot, this course will wear you down. It presents an excellent challenge and guarantees that you will want to come back to test your game, but be prepared for disappointment the first few times around this course. If the elevation doesn't get you, the many off-the-radar bunkers will.

played here today (6-10-18) for the first time First this is a very good golf course,3rd in the state of az in my opinion,the courses stands out for the Par 5's and the Par 3's They are outstanding and a good challenge to play,now the course had just punched the greens,teeboxes and Fairways and not in bad shape but should be better in a couple of weeks,the really only bad thing about the course is the carts once you get near a bunker/sandtraps sometimes the G.P.S. will tell you to go back towards the cartpath or near the Cart only sign in the fairways it will shut down and again tell you to "go backwards" to a cart path kinda strange in again my opinion,will go back to play it again

Course was in great shape the lay out was fantastic with the uphill and downhill holes and with some water holes the fairways and greens were in great condition. The course is set up to challenge your game at many levels and the staff was very friendly and helpful with things to know on different holes of the course. The practice facility was fantastic giving you an area to practice all shots for the upcoming round. It will be a must play every time I'm in the Phoenix area.

Even though course recently had been aerated, it still was in great shape. Greens roll well (considering). Elevation changes, interesting layout, challenging shots, and beautiful scenery all make this course a must see. Only complaint are the beer prices. C’mon, $6.00 per beer is ridiculous.

Driving from Scottsdale I was wondering if the course was worth the drive. The course exceeded my expectations. The course now rates as one of my favorites in Arizona.

Playability

Course rewards accurate tee shots. A little left or right will not be so bad. Hit a really errant tee shot and you'll probably need a beach towel or a snake bite kit. Fairways were generally well cut with some patchiness but we are entering the hot summer season. Rough cut is half an inch to two inches but the aforementioned errant shots have the ability to roll through into trouble. Greens were true and consistent but great attention needs to be paid to which way the grain is going to control putting distance.

Staff

You will not find a friendlier group! Acknowledgement, informative and always a smile.

Quirkiness

When you play Quintero (not if) give yourself little more drive time than Google Maps or Waze gives you due single lane highway traffic (slow trucks). Also after you check in at the pro shop it's a long ride to practice area/driving range/first tee (they are all in the same place).

Yes, Quintero is a little bit out of the way, but it is worth the drive.

The layout and conditions are spectacular. The greens are fast, smooth and hold their line.

When we come to the phoenix area for a golf trip, Quintero is always #1 on our list to play, and it never disappoints.

The staff is friendly and professional, heck they even gave us a cookie at the turn. Thanks for a great day Quintero!

Quintero is a top notch course. It will really test your skills to keep the ball in the fairway. As a 7 handicap, I played 2 rounds in one day and learned some of the nuances of the course. I enjoyed playing and was treated like a professional. Highly recommend this course!

Quintero is a premier course in the valley. My playing partner and I try to hit the course as often as we can. We have never had any problems until our visit on Saturday (12 May) and it was taken care of professionally, quickly and with apologies. <br/> The background to this is a 30 group deciding that the pace of play did not apply to them and lots of selfies and "non-thinking" about others - such as taking your chipper 5 yards off the green then walking back to the cart for the putter. As a result it took one hour to play 2 holes. A call to the clubhouse and the rangers were straight out., an "all hand on deck" as rangers were on greens over the next few holes. Quintero and the GM, Mike, took control of the situation and a first for me in all my years playing actually saw rangers not just put groups on the clock but actually made them pick up and skip holes! <br/> I feel that the rangers and management controlled the situation with the needs of all players in the appropriate manner by offering the clock and then making slow play skip holes. <br/> A great course not just relies on the actual course but its management and Quintero meets both criteria. Thank you for what could have been a nightmare round (except for my swing) turning out to be a very enjoyable round.<br/> As a side bar, whilst the groups were on the clock we joind the 4some behind to make up 6. We still caught up with the groups in front, until they were made to pick up and move. We completed in just under 5:30 - usually a 4:30 round.

I rated the "pace of play" as excellent. IT WASN'T at the outset. What was Excellent, was how the Quintero Staff corrected it. Within a matter of one hole upon notifying the staff of a serious issue in Pace of Play. we saw the ranger. Within the time frame of 3 more holes, we were greeted by the General Manager apologizing for the experience (Which they rapidly corrected). The team that runs the course are professionals and responsive to any/all concerns. Now I play here often. NEVER had an issue with pace of play. This time there was. The staff corrected it immediately. Bottom Line - BEST COURSE AND STAFF IN ARIZONA!!
