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.

Slow

Recently reopened after overseeing. The greens were predictably slow and I don’t fault them for that. But very path only always slows play. And there were groups who could not keep up anyway. Nearly five hours to finish. Painful!:(

Not good

Front 9 greens unplayable. Back 9 a little better but by then the round had been ruined by the conditions on the front.

Needs improvement

Many greens and fringes were in poor shape as were sections of pathways. I expected better course conditions for the price paid. I enjoyed the generous fairways. Pace of play was 5 hours.

Not worth the money

I played here on a Thursday. Pace of play was disappointing. Even a golf employee stated the same. Two bachelor parties were playing. The starter allowed groups of 8 to play as a single group.

The greens inn the front nine were in bad condition. No warning was given.

Rest of the course was fine. Staff was friendly and everything was clean. It had a nice layout

Not Worth The Money

The greens on the front 9 were TERRIBLE! There was so much “junk grass” in the greens you had no idea what the putts were going to do or how to judge the speed. The back 9 was in much better shape and most of the greens didn’t have issues though 15 was bad like the front. Definitely way over priced for the condition of the course.

Not close to worth it

This is the worst value I have ever gotten in any state for a round of golf. I’m honestly insulted they would even take my money. I have played TONS of golf in Arizona and California, and this was just flat out a rip off. I played Quintero for less money than this course in the winter last year. To pay $125 in the dead of summer for this course was inexcusable. WHAT A JOKE

Wet weather
Used cart

The course was in pretty rough shape with a ton of bare spots and lots of weeds and invasive grasses taking over the tee boxes, fairways and collars. It was raining all day today so those bare spots were just muddy mush. I have historically loved this course, but needed some water on it (before today's rain).

Normally would recommend the course to friends, but in the shape it was in today I just couldn't.

Not in Great Shape

We have played here about 4 times, but this was the first time this year. Tee boxes are bad, greens are slow, and the grass is in rough shape in the fairways.

maybe was great once

maybe at one point this was a great track....it has not been kept up. Tee boxes are terrible! I know it is called a "links" course....so leave the woods at home, because anything you hit can bounce into a pond/water....surface is so hard. Houses are so close to the course...too close!!! on a Par 3 we had to take the ball over a yard to get to the pin....just crazy. You can tell by all the yards that had to put up nets... bummer when you are buying a $2M+ home to be in Scottsdale. The course is overpriced for the conditions....but then again - just about everything in Scottsdale is!
