The Links at Arizona Biltmore Golf Club is the "younger" of two golf courses on the Biltmore property, and offers intelligence and innovation, with little room for impatience, on a much-feted design that fast gained reverence from both local and visiting golfers. The golf course features fairways that wind amidst lush pine trees and some of Phoenix's showier houses, greens so bunkered that precision is the minimum to shoot for, and contoured greens that roll as they come. Put the ball where it belongs, and it'll show up on the scorecard; put the ball where it doesn't, and that will show up, too.

After your round on the Links at Arizona Biltmore Golf Club, head in for one of several dining options, from Southwestern to French to Asian to fusion dishes, as well as snacks and high tea post-tee.

Looking to do more than get on the Links at the Arizona Biltmore Golf Club and have a nibble and a cup? Look into one of several packages available, including stay-and-play deals.

Great location, on the expensive side

New facilities being built which impacted the overall experience. Currently no food or beverage options except for what's offered on the beverage cart. Course was in good condition; however, the tee boxes are in awful shape.

Stay away from weekend drunken bachelor parties.

This would have been an amazing course to play if not for drunken fools who were disrespectful to other players time and the course, especially peeing anywhere and outside the bathroom walls. Don't ever go on weekends when weddings may be booked.
It really made this course hard to enjoy. It has beautiful views, the staff, and locals were so nice. Course conditions were great despite some construction and excessive rains in Arizona.
We played 5 hours and 45 minutes and could not finish hole 18. Two groups of locals who were ahead of us left after holes 4 and 12. They would likely get rain checks and certainly paid less. We paid almost $400 to play this course. It was a shame. So I do recommend this course but first make sure there are no drunken fools booked ahead of your tee time.

Average golf course.

The course itself was fine, very average, was not expecting more. It was a cool day, therefore not very crowded. Finished the round in just over three hours. Greens were just ok for the most part, some bare patches. What was a little annoying not being told about cart path only until the first tee, a extraordinary amount of goose poop everywhere for the first 6-7 holes, washroom code on hole 6 did not work and the gps was a little off for the cart not being on the cart path which caused the cart to slow to a slow walk. Overall if the course is in a rebuilding process, a little more attention to detail is required for the overall golf experience.

Perfect day

The Links course was fantastic! The staff was friendly, the pace of play was perfect and the course was well-kept. The golf shop is under construction so the off course amenities were limited but it looks like it will be beautiful.

I’m a 9 handicap. Shot 79 so not upset about my score. Course conditions are “ratty”. Multiple tee boxes have no grass. Inadequate sand in the bunkers.

Staff outside of the pro shop were very apathetic. Inside the pro shop they were very good.

Very unlikely that I will return & note that I play over 150 rounds annually.

Happy New Year

I’ve lived in the valley for 50+ years. I’ve played this course since I moved here I’ve seen the course take no pride in upgrading the links course it’s been the same for the past 25 years. The addition of the new pro shop is nice, but does not add to the quality of play or course conditions and the people working in it on January 1, 2024 were extremely rude and in the old pro shop they were always rude, unsocial and felt like they were entitled to something other than serving guests. Cart services does a great job, but the overall course conditions have never been improved upon bunkers rebuilt, greens rebuilt, new ew tea boxes installed. However, the corporate greed continues in the green fees, continued to get absurd for an executive course that’s average at best. If it wasn’t for the local Phoenicians, who paid play this course around, especially in the summer, both courses would be bulldozed and townhomes built and that’s a fact. There is no discounts or other considerations given to the locals. There should be a local discount rate just like Torrey Pines does for the residence of San Diego.

Good value for the Flash deal

Overall it’s a links course with some nice signatures holes with views and a few that were just ok. The greens were really slow and some bare areas and the T boxes need some work along with bunkers with no sand. The fairways were in good shape though and rough was fair. The club house is non existent so forget about getting a cup of coffee etc. Final thought is that it was worth the flash deal price after that I would skip it.

Convenient!

I decided to play at the last minute and the proximity of Biltmore made it the obvious choice.

The staff was very friendly and the new dogs they are building looks great. I played the links course, which was serviceable but nothing to write home about and definitely overpriced for what it is.

Most of the greens are in pretty bad shape, tee boxes were hit or miss. All of the fairways were in great shape.

Nice little courser but there are much better values out there for the same quality.

Day before overseed but weren’t warned

We paid approx $100 each to play this course which was essentially a dry, dusty dead track. The greens were fine but the tee boxes and fairways were dead. We weren’t warned that it was the last day before overseeing, and as Canadians visiting, we had no idea how dead a course could be. We should have been told that the course had not yet been over seeded and was in rough shape so we could decide if we wanted to fork over that much money.
