QUINTERO GOLF CLUB (928) 501-1500
Arizona golf course review
Quintero Golf Club in Peoria is one of Arizona's premier layouts and golf facilities. This Troon managed property features a spectacular Rees Jones layout that offers breathtaking
desert mountain scenery along a rolling terrain with formidable elevation changes from tee to green. The course was in immaculate conditioning coming out of over-seeding
during my early fall visit. The images in this review speak for themselves – this is a special golf course!
The Clubhouse is a work in progress and will feature a pro shop and restaurant and lounge, with adjacent event, tournament/outing facilities, but a comfortable temporary
clubhouse provides a fully stocked golf shop and a grill available for breakfast and lunch daily as well as snacks and drinks. Practice facilities include a targeted grass range,
short game area with sand bunker plus putting green.
There are 5 sets of tees (more on some holes) designed to provide opportunities for golfers of all skill levels to enjoy a round here. The tips measure 7208 yards and play to a
challenging slope of 147. Alternate sets measure 6845 yards/143 slope, 6397 yards with a 136 slope, 5786 yards with a slope of 126 for men and 148 for ladies, and 5043 yards
with a 126 slope for ladies hitting from the forward tees. Sprinkler heads are measured to the center of the green and 100, 150 and 200 yard markers are also posted on all par
fours and fives along the cart paths.
Golfers will encounter several tremendously elevated tee areas – with tee boxes often terraced into the hillsides like a cascading waterfall. Those afraid of elevation changes will
find a challenge here! From the tips, gold and silver tees, players will encounter numerous carries over desert canyons and arroyos. The copper and jade tees are significantly
more playable. The fairways are usually ample, and most often there is a good amount of room greenside to recover from slightly errant approach shots.
Whether you are a novice or experienced player, the manicured conditioning and superb desert mountain landscape make it worth the drive from Phoenix to play a round here.
This course has garnered numerous awards including
- # 37 in the country (Golfweek) for 2012 Top Residential Golf Courses
# 3 top private courses out of top 10 in 2005 Desert Golf Magazine (this course is now open for public play!)
