Accessible yet secluded, this exclusive private golf club is located less than one hour northwest of Phoenix Sky Harbor airport, in the high Sonoran desert near Lake Pleasant in the Hieroglyphic Mountains. First and foremost, Quintero Golf Club is about great golf. Unlike many other newer private clubs, there is no real estate requirement to join the club, and residences will be very limited: only 283 on a property over 828 acres in size. The first golf course, the 7208-yard Founders Course, was designed by esteemed architect Rees Jones and includes an extensive practice facility. Jones's creation has been named one of America's Top 100 modern golf courses by Golfweek Magazine since 2002. Located at an elevation between 1986 and 2670 feet, the entire property is surrounded by Federal lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management, adding to the feeling of privacy. In addition to the 18 holes of spectacular mountain golf and golf clubhouse, the property will include a fitness and vitality center, a putting course, tennis courts, swimming pool, and hiking trails. The facility takes full advantage of the sweeping desert landscape with significant elevation changes and lush collections of native saguaro, ocotillo, ironwood, palo verde, and acacia trees. Great care has been taken to maintain the natural setting, making the course look like it has been a part of the landscape for many years. The gated private Phoenix golf community provides the feeling of a secluded private retreat that is a comfortable home away from home.
