Quintero G&CC Faces Foreclosure Auction

August 09, 2009

The latest high-end private golf club to hit the skids is Quintero G&CC in Phoenix. The Phoenix Business Journal reported Friday that the facility will be sold at a foreclosure auction Oct. 7. Details here.

Quintero -- as the story details -- was the "dream" of Missouri businessman Gary McClung, who once owned the country's largest Ford truck dealership, Midway Ford/Sterling Truck Center in Kansas City. Quintero opened in 2001, with one course designed by Rees Jones, a proposed second course by Greg Norman (never built), real estate lots that sold for as much as $2 million, and more than 200 members.
