The course was in great shape overall, greens are a little slower than what we were used to but balls were tracking well. The Cart GPS was not that useful as it only reads to the center of the greens. There were a lot of front pin placements that changed the distance by 10 yards or more, and you did not want to be above the pins as there were some fairly steep sloes to deal with. We had a rangefinder but had trouble getting a reading on the pins in some cases. Range balls now included in the fee which was a nice surprise. Staff was friendly, and beverage cart was around every few holes. The Links is the more scenic of the 2 courses, for out of town visitors it provides some spectacular views, elevation changes, and challenging holes.

Played from the whites but could have easily played from the tips. It is a shorter course played 5 wood off almost all the 4's and 5's. Overall the course was in great condition. I am so happy that I found this course I will play here again. Pace of play was great up until the last 2 or 3 holes but other than that there was almost no waiting.

I absolutely love the scenery on the Links Course. I was lucky to pair up with a twosome who knew the course, played decently and above all, respected the pace of play ruling! Tough to find on a resort course in the winter months. The Course is in what I would call "spotty" condition certainly not what one would expect for prime season.

The amount of time to play....5+ hours was ridiculous for that course. Waited 75% of the shots. You couldn't get in a rythum. Pin positions lended itself to slow play with 3 putts and chipping. The Course is nice but when you wait and wait it falls out of favor quickly!!!

We played a late round (2:27) so we had a great deal on price. Not the longest course but fun to play. Tee boxes, fairways, greens and rough were all in great shape (rare for most courses during summer in Arizona). Bunkers were a little crispy but still playable. Cart girls were exceptional, came by frequently and notified when it was their last call (never had that at other courses). Down side, beer prices were higher than most courses. Still the overall experience was great ... I just wish my golf game was as good! I plan on playing again before the winter price increase.

I always enjoy playing the Links course! Two of us played 20 holes in 2 hours and 20 minutes!! The rough was unusually high in places and the greens were fuzzier and slower than normal but it made for a great day nonetheless.

Outside staff are always super friendly and helpful! I did see several areas that were slow to drain and made for several smelly shots!

I came to play the course for my birthday. The staff was really friendly and wished me happy birthday multiple times. The course was in great shape. The greens played good. The beverage cart came around often and there was ice cold water every so often on the course. If you stay at the hotel. Ask the bellman to give you a ride to the course. Great experience all the way around.

The AZ Biltmore Links Golf Course is in great shape, not over watered, not dried out.

The greens were is great shape. Considering the 100+ degrees on Sunday, the golf course and pace of play were both perfect.

The greens were good. I had no bad lies in the fairways but there were some (very few) areas where the grass was not great in the fairways. The tee boxes were excellent. It was nice they had a beverage cart girl there...I think we saw her four times, which was excellent. And there were plenty of water coolers and water fountains. Would always recommend the Link at the Arizona Biltmore.

I love the Links course as it offers so many challenging shots. The pace of play was a bit slower than normal due to the great weather and excellent course condition. One additional note I'd like to add is that we had lunch in the Adobe Restaurant and had excellent service from Jake along with great conversation. He's a keeper...
