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.

Beautiful course with stunning views

This course was extremely well maintained. There are views on most holes of the mountains that surround the course.. Even the rough is green grass at this course (and that was in January when some courses have dormant grass in the rough).

Over priced old course

Fairways are in nice condition. Greens are medium to fast. There are so many divots not repaired you can repair 10 divots on each green and still see some in your line. Biggest issue with this course is the layout. Fairways run
so close to each other, you feel like you are playing dodge ball instead of golf.
Pace of play was good. We went out early on a Saturday. Played full round in less than 4 hours. That's pretty good for weekend winter golf in AZ. Saw the beverage girls about every 3 or 4 holes. IMO, it's overpriced. Overall nice, but there are plenty of other courses in the area that are better value.

WELCOMING PEOPLE

I noticed right off the staff was very friendly and helpful!
Course was in great condition from tee to greens.
My tee time was at 1pm, so pace of play was expected to be worse than the 4.5 hours

Beautiful course with lots of history.

I thoroughly Enjoyed the course, my only complaint might be it’s a little tight between greens and tee boxes in places.

Nice Course -Unacceptable Pace of Play

Nice resort course. Good shape and well maintained. Front nine went well. On back nine had a group of four guys and three girls join together for a seensome. Marshall speared them on the 10th tee but there pace of play was incredibly slow. Called the club house twice to ask someone come out to speed them up but no one came. We were backed up three groups on each tee. Played three holes in an hour and half so decided to drive off and not play last 6 holes. Would have likely come back but with such poor course management will not risk it. Not a reputation you want to have in this day of already slow play. Purse should have a Marshall to monitor and establish reasonable pace.

Sort of Dull

Play here for the history, not for the course itself. The course is straight forward without a lot of trouble. It was a tad long for me but my playing partners were fine with it. I play very fast golf so while I took an extra stroke or two, I didn't hold them up.
I thought the staff was kind of snooty. Only one person was at all welcoming. There was a tournament on Links so perhaps they were tired? But based on the attitude, I would find somewhere else to play if I ever go back.
I will say they had a phenomenal women's section in the pro shop, I was very impressed but the course and staff didn't impress enough to want any logo wear.

Play early

I played the course at 9:00am and think that is the secret to playing this hidden gem. The reviews I read before my round stated that it was a five plus hour round and because of that I booked early and played in 3hrs and 10 min. The course though wide open has a green side bunker that almost always was between my ball and the flag which lead to either attacking the flag or bail out which is great. Be as aggressive as you want which is all I could ask. The course is as wet as others noted so. I confirmed a lift clean and place game with my buddy that worked out well. The houses surrounding the course are beautiful and worth the visit themselves. All in all I would recommend this course to friends.

Busy

Played over thanksgiving weekend. Course was too crowded and conditions too soft (every drive created a mud ball). Had to Hit off mats before the round- which started 20 min late so we didn’t finish all 18.
