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.

Community Course

Feels and plays like a community course. Was surprised because the Biltmore has a great name. There are no balls at the driving range. You have to pay for buckets of balls at the pro shop, and carry them to the range. Range balls are not included with your round; it is separate, which is not typical of a private course or a country club. There was no attendant at the first hole to check in people or verify tee times. There were 3 groups ahead of us at our tee time and we had to wait 20 minutes before we teed off. The couple they assigned to play with us were not particularly friendly. There was a high school tournament this morning which we were not informed of until we arrived. Overall, I will elect to play at a more formal and organized club that includes free balls at the driving range. I would not say this feels like a proper golf club or course. I’ve played at community courses that feel more formal and organized.

Dissappointing Course Layout

It was a perfect day for golf 72 degrees dry and sunny. The first tee on the Adobe course was confusing as the 18th green was 30 yards to the right of the tee box and the whole course was layed out that way. The black tee box was oftern so far back from the cart path it was a hike at least 40 yards back.
Twice I was nearly hit by golf balls. The tree's were sparse and not enough to separate the fairways. I highly recommend that if your looking for a course to play in AZ that you choose another one.

Fantastic Price and Course

Great resort course layout, generous fairways, fair yet challenging from the black tees. Views of the Phoenix mountains were superb today!

Flat & Boring

While well-maintained and with a friendly staff, the Adobe course is flat, boring, with fairways & hitting very close to others and tee boxes. Pretty and forgiving, but a yawner.

Solid sunday

Course was great, played the back tees. If you hit your drives 250+ play the back tees. Only down fall was a lot of people aren’t repairing their hallmarks. Other than that, facility was clean, course was well maintained. Carts have GPS. Pretty wide open.

Wondeful staff

Course is good. Staff are very professional. Exemplary service for any golf club to follow. A basket of warm up range balls should come with the booking, which is the only reason I wouldn't give 5/5 for value. All things considered, Lovely track and I will be visiting again.

great staff, easy course

Much of the reason I say the course is "easy", is because of course design and maintenance. The course is WIDE, and the rough is ....short, real short. Hardly a chance of walking up to your ball and telling yourself that you can only hack it out 60 yards. Tough to lose a ball here - I lost one because of unfamiliarity, not knowing there was a pond behind a green. When you play a course for the first time and shoot a much lower score than average, it's an easy set-up. Staff was great, weather was great, the guy I played with was great.
