Some consider the Adobe golf course at the Arizona Biltmore Golf Club to be grand and stately, a prime example of golf course design in the pre-modern era, combining rare beauty with solid trickery. It makes for a round both relaxing and challenging played on lush 50-year-old fairways, with a spacious layout, reminding on of golf as it ought to be played: the glory days when graphite went into pencils and balls were only white.

The Adobe golf course at the Arizona Golf Club measures 6,430 yards from the white tees and comes in at par-71.

Due to the mild Arizona winters, the Adobe Golf Course at the Arizona Biltmore Golf Club is open year-round.

Under construction

Short course with one temporary green. Pace of play was slow. I didn't see a Marshall on the course. If the conditions are over 110F I would prefer to have the Marshall out and move up the pace.
The Staff was amazing and friendly.

A classic course that still holds up.

This is one of two course at The Biltmore. I like this one best. It is far from a modern design and many consider it short. Regardless, it is a pleasure to play and I found some great conditions especially on the greens. If you prefer modern design, you may not like this one but for a classic course, this is a wonderful example.

A Round At The Biltmore

Construction and poor greens was disappointing. The cost is not worth it. Stick to Quintero and others that are in better condition.

Not so great

The layout and condition of the front 9 was unimpressive. It’s very old school style and we have much better to choose from in Phoenix. The back 9 was better but not enough to bring me back. The staff friendliness very good. The Biltmore Links course is in better shape and more enjoyable.

Aerated Greens without notice

This was my first time playing this course. I wouldn't have paid so much knowing the greens were being aerated.

Biltmore Adobe

I always wanted to play one of the courses at the iconic Biltmore hotel complex in Phoenix. Sadly, everything felt worn out…like a cash-strapped muni course. However, there appears to be a renovation project in the works scheduled for completion in late 2023. I’ll give it another try after completion.

Expected better

I fully expected a well maintained course and that was farthest from the case the greens were in horrible condition I haven’t been to a course with worse greens for the money to play a round here you would think the greens would be maintained at least somewhat
