The Biltmore Golf Course in Coral Gables sits next to the beautiful hotel, an architectural masterpiece that was modeled after the Giralda Tower in Seville, Spain. Donald Ross designed the course in 1925 and the traditional layout has retained all of its original character. The golf course weaves through a series of canals that used to carry guests along in gondolas. The canals run alongside the lush fairways while towering banyan trees frame the elevated greens. Offering views of the historic hotel from nearly every hole, there are carts available but the golf course is worth the walk. The layout is popular not only for its historic scenery and verdant setting, but also for its playability. Over the years the Biltmore has been host to a number of professional golfers and celebrities ranging from Babe Ruth to Tiger Woods.

Always a pleasure

Always a pleasure to play Biltmore; especially if you like the old classic courses. There's not a railroad tie in sight, good shots are rewarded, bad ones not, and when the wind picks up, as it does most days, the course shows its teeth.

Crews are still picking up from Irma, so there's a little more work going on and unfinished landscaping then one might prefer, but it doesn't interfere with play.

Thank goodness for GolfNow; even for this beauty I'm not paying rack rate in the high season.....

Cart control

The golf carts were frustrating. The geo regulation seemed random and over controlled. So annoying that it negatively impacted my impression of the professionalism of the course management.

Country Club Conditions

This track has been in the upper echelon of Dade County courses for the last 20 or more years, but this Spring may have it in the best condition I have ever seen. The fairways are plush, the greens unblemished, the tee boxes first rate, the sand perfect, not a bare or untended spot ih the rough For a semi-private course in South Florida to present at this level is really exceptional. This is the closest to country club conditions a day-tripper is likely to find in these parts. My advice is to get over there before the summer sun and humidity start to wreak havoc.

Very Disappointed!

We were traveling by boat with the plan of staying in Miami until the 14th. Having played this course before we decided to use Golf Now to book T times for 7 (4 men and 3 wives). On Tuesday afternoon (12th) one mile outside of the Miami inlet entrance, on of the boats had an emergency... taking on 13 inches of water in the engine room, engine and bilge alarms sounded, but both engines were lost. We were able to get our friend into the Miami Coty Marina safely.. his boat will be towed out ASAP. The stress of almost sinking at 54 ft. yacht and trying to salvage engines was a stressful and all consuming experience. We all had to change plans and depart on our boat this morning, unable to play as we had planned. I tried to call Golf Now and eventually had to communicate through the App. There was no chance to explain the situation... only an immediate NO REFUND message. After spending what felt like an hour trying to cancel, we agreed to simply walk away, eat the cost and move on. We were not looking to cancel for a frivolous reason and would have at least appreciated a credit toward the future. We also tried calling the club directly and they said they could not help with a T time made online. This was a horrible experience on top of an already bad day. Non of us will use this service again.

Tremendous Golf Course - One Of The Best In South Florida!

This has become my favorite golf course in the area to play at! I've tried dozens of courses in the South Florida area and the Biltmore Course is the best in terms of layout, course conditions, value and difficulty.

The staff has always been amazing too me and the location of the course is in a very nice area with nice homes surrounding the course.

Absolutely worth $100+ and will continue to play here 1-2 times per week!
