Once one of the most exclusive private golf clubs in the Valley of the Sun, Quintero Golf Club is now under new ownership and is open for the public to experience this exquisite golf club, referred to as “The Best”, and it has the accolades to back it up.

Quintero Golf Club was most recently honored by Golfweek as #37 in the country for Top Residential Golf Courses in 2012. This Club has been voted Top 100 Modern Golf Courses in America 9 years in a row by Golfweek. Golfweek’s #10 of top 100 Best Residential Golf Communities in 2006 as well as #48 on Golfweek’s 2006 list of top 100 Best Residential Golf Communities and on Golfweek’s 2006 list of top 100 Best Modern Courses. The Club was #3 among private courses in Desert Golf Magazines’s 2005 Top Ten.

Located minutes from Lake Pleasant in the West Valley, in a secluded and serene atmosphere, Quintero has been discovered by northeast Valley residents and international golfers alike. And now, the word is reaching all the golfers in the state.

Measuring 7,208 yards from the championship tees and playing to a par 72, this Rees Jones Founders course is certain to test any golfer. Yet, with as many as nine tees per hole, it’s also accessible to players of all skill levels. Dramatic elevation changes enhance the thrill of this desert golf masterpiece along with waterfalls, babbling brooks, ponds, undulating and mounded fairways and greens and plenty of wildlife.

The golf club offers a large practice facility for driving and chipping along with a well-stocked pro shop, outdoor grille and patio dining (which is pure pleasure in this quiet and secluded atmosphere). While sparsely sprinkled with homes, it’s definitely a golf course whereby a golf purist’s dream can come true.

Director of Golf and General Manager Tom Wilcox has been with the Club since it’s opening over 10 years ago. Director of Agronomy Trevor Cooke keeps the course in exceptional condition for the round you expect for a Troon Golf experience along with a very attentive staff that caters to your every need.

“Never realized such dramatic elevation changes were right in our own backyard! I always thought you had to go to Prescott, Sedona, Flagstaff or Payson to experience this kind of elevation landscaping on a course. Not!! As a matter of fact, many of the holes on this magnificent design reminded me of some of my favorite holes played in the aforementioned locations. I was and still am amazed at the beauty and challenge of Quintero,” stated Nancy Howard, Editor/Publisher of Arizona Golfer.

Tee times are welcome up to 90 days in advance of the day of play with Arizona Resident rates available up to 90 days in advance, as well. The new owners have a unique plan in place for pricing tee times, which offers the best prices the further out you make your reservation. The plan is extraordinary in the golfing industry and advantageous for the golfers.

Upcoming events include “Family Days” which will turn the Club on Sundays into a golf themed cookout and picnic scenario, offering free golf for families as well as babysitting in order for adults to get out and hit nine without the tiny ones. “It’s our concept on how to get the entire family back into golfing and attracting our future golfers on the grow,” stated the new owners. “With time being a precious commodity these days, golf needs to become a family event again, as it was in the past, to help enhance its growth”.

Stay ‘n Play Packages are available with the Club’s Executive Retreat. The golf club community offers a spectacular vacation retreat and executives’ sanctuary. Accommodations provide all new furnishings with elegant finishes along with top quality linens and accessories. Amenities include sparkling pool, barbecues & entertainment areas. The Retreat is conveniently overlooking the Quintero Golf Course, with hiking, biking & walking trails nearby. Availability is nightly, weekly, or monthly.
