Played the "Q" on the Fourth of July in the late AM. Temps were hovering in the 100's, but a breeze and some cloud cover made the conditions very passable.... after all it's a dry heat. The greens were in fine condition and were rolling about a 10 which is fine in the summer. Played this course in the Fall after overseeding and the greens were closer to a 12. The Q is a haul from central Phoenix, but is worth the drive as long as you are not double booked on the homefront. Bring your A or B game to this course as virtually every hole will test some aspect of your game from long irons to pitch/chip shots. Hitting a 5 iron 185 to a back pin on #18 made my day. I recommend playing this course at least twice- once in the AM and again in the late PM -to absorb the terroir and notice how the same holes look different depending on how the sun frames up the course. The Super has the course in good shape and the management is attuned to the golfer's needs. For that special day of golf- head to Quintero where there is never a queue.

Great golf course with great views but the staff was really disappointing. Not in any hurry to help you and not very friendly. Would play the course again if I knew that the entire staff was replaced.

On 15 of 18 holes, we had to listen to 2-3 gas powered maintenance vehicles or equipment. Greens were in terrible shape and impossibly difficult with shots into greens - very hard and fast. Incredibly long drive, too. 8 handicap speaking - its a waste of time.

Very dramatic. Great staff. Rugged and challenging track. Amazing greens. Worth every penny when compared to $250-$300 courses in Scottsdale that aren't as good. Got a great rate from DiscountTeeTimes.com

Heard lots about it so wanted to try. Very remote location. Very pretty coarse. They have taken very good advantage of the terrain. The coarse was in very nice shape. Greens were unfair. Not in good shape at all. Another review I read mentioned they looked diseased, I would have to agree. Another major complaint was the lack of signage. Neither the tee box or the score card had any signage to give you any indication of what the hole looks like or what to expect. Made it very difficult as a first timer. Again unfair. My Biggest complaint was the golf carts. Heard a few other people with the same complaint. there is such a long drive from where you get the cart to where the first tee is that your battery is running out before the round finishes. We barely finished 18 besides make the long ride back to the clubhouse. Had to push the cart up a few of the last hills. Overall it was ok. Did not live up to the hype for me.

Since Quintero is now public, I wanted to share my only round there on 12/22/2006. I played with my great,late friend Randy Marquez. Quintero is by far one my favorite course in AZ. Reminds me of the great courses in NM, especially Paako Ridge. I understand Quintero has suffered like most of us in this economy...too bad, because what stunning holes, each by itself Quintero has. The shape of each hole is outstanding and the greens are spectacular. The par 3's are very cool and difficult, but my hole-in-one on #9 was worth every dollar spent on this great golf experience. Will be playing again soon now that it's open to the public. (My rating is based on my play date of 12/22/2007 and the course was pristeen!!)

Quintero used to be my second favorite course in AZ. It has very good routing and a "house free" desert environment. Unfortunately, in my last round in March, I had a really bad experience. I brought a near scratch out-of-towner with me, and was really disappointed. First off, the course was in TERRIBLE condition. The greens looked diseased and were bumpy. Also, the fairways were spotty and far from "acceptable" condition in the middle of high season. Second, the course was MOBBED and the ranger showed no interest in his job at all- "the course is busy, there's nothing I can do". In my book a 5 1/2 hour round is not acceptable! Finally, my guest was disappointed with the course in general- "it's a really pretty spot but the routing lacks spark and is repetitive... plus that uphill par 5 is silly". I like the routing better than he did, but I certainly can see how someone could make these comments. To each his own, and all that. This course was great when it was private... it has slipped since it went public and the greenskeeper quit (from what i've heard). Hopefully the new owners will crack the whip and bring it back to what it once was.

Like many have said, this place is definitely worth the drive. They had very ambitious goals when they built Quintero and one of the few good things about the economy collapsing is we can all get a chance to see this place now. Course is in solid shape for the middle of summer. Elevation changes are dramatic and picturesque. Greens are pure & fast. The pace was a bit slow but that is likely due to 1st timers like us being out there in uncharted territory. They made up for the lack of a full service clubhouse with great service and options throughout the course. Everything is pretty spread out on the large property so be prepared for some long cart rides, but the good news is there is a lot to look at.

Wow what a great golf course! It's a little hard to find since it's in the middle of no where but it's well worth the drive. Your GPS will not send you to the correct location, I would suggest calling the clubhouse for directions. The staff will treat you like a king once you get there. There is no drinking water on the course but they fill the cooler on the cart with ice and water bottles for you for no extra $$. I will be back the next time I visit AZ.

Really outstanding course with some critiquing it because it has a few similar par 3s. To me it's like criticizing a magazine for putting supermodel twins in it. Greens are fast and hard for me to read. They seem to be suffering a little. This club is going from private to semi-private. Pace of play can be spotty as more of the general public play it. It is NOT a hacker's paradise is the most likely reason. Amenities, well, no real clubhouse and nothing likely to happen for awhile in that regard. This course is worth driving out to.

Better plan on playing this course more than once because the scenery will distract you the first time. Excellent views, wirth the drive,no two holes are even close to the same. a pleasure for golfers of every skill level. only thing missing is a 5 star clubhouse.

One of the most beautiful courses you're ever gonna see, every hole is unique. The sand traps are everywhere, in the fairway, around the greens. It's a tough course for someone who plays like me but it's worth the adventure.

It's entirely different from what we are used to playing around here. It has elevated par 3s going downhill over water. Bathtub greens. It's just fairway and that's it for the most part. If you're not on the fairway, it's over with. You're in the jungle. A real challenge.

As a semi-private golf course, Reese Jones has built a masterpiece in the desert. He challenges every club in your bag, there are numerous tees on each hole for all types of players. The course was in spectacular shape the last time I played it. The staff was fantastic and it has to be one of the top 10 golf courses in the state of Arizona.
