Classic Layout

We played Belleview Biltmore GC on a Saturday in late January. The weather was cloudy, cold and windy, so scoring conditions were tough! It was our first time playing the course and we were excited to play another classic Donald Ross course.

Pro shop staff were friendly and provided a course guide book which proved helpful in navigating the holes.

The back tees stretch to just over 6600 yards and 7 play longer than 395 yards with 3 longer than 435. The back in particular is the longer of the two nines at 3400 yards.

In classic Donald Ross form all of the greens were elevated with run off slopes. Most holes had cross bunkers that pinched the fairways and you think off the tee. The par fours in particular proved a good test. The par 5's all solid if not spectacular. The par 3's require strong ball striking. Severe run off on the right side of he 180 yard 8th no doubt catches its share of good but not good enough shots! The tee shot on the 5th is a little awkward from the back tee as a tree stand on right blocks the right 1/3 of the fairway, players playing a right to left ball will struggle with this one.

Overall good course and one I will play again when next in FLA. Solid classic layout. Play it you won't be disappointed.

It's not the course

I have played this course many times in past years. However, I am not commenting about course conditions today. Poor experience with a difficult club pro. Will not return at any point to play this course.

A Donald Ross Gem

I love this golf course. From the historic clubhouse to the layout and condition come step back in time and play this Donald Ross Gem.

The bunkers are strategically placed, the fairways have subtle twists and turns and the greens are in great shape.

It's like stepping back in time- I half expected to look across the fairway and see Bobby Jones and Walter Hagen.

Donald Ross Course

Was expecting greens to be wasted as per previous reviews and comments, but found them to be very good, very fast and true. The fairways for the most part were very good . Quite a few tee boxes were dried out and looking sparse, made footing difficult. The beverage cart going around was well stocked, but no sandwiches or any types of fruits. Good assortment of beers. Came around frequently. Played in 3 3/4 hrs and had to wait numerous times for the 4some in front. Would come back . Good layout, nice bunkers, fast greens. Only found 1 green with issues and it was marked .

Enjoyed the round

Greens were average speed. Fairways were average to maybe slightly above average. Tee boxes were a little beat up and slightly unlevel on a few holes. Sand traps were very well maintained and well placed. The course layout was fair to the golfer. Overall the course was maintained well. The staff were very friendly, welcoming, and helpful. I would recommend this course. I was in the Treasure Island area for a brief vacation and this course was close by.

enjoyable

Played a fast round with a twosome.Course flows nicely and would be a comfortable walk. It was a little dry(some brown areas)but it played well.I thought the greens were tame for a Ross course.

Second Time Around I Enjoyed the Course More

Played the course several years ago and was not sure I liked it. This time around I enjoyed it. Price for 9 was right, course was in good shape and it could be my new 9 hole later in the day course! You must at least try it since it is new on golfnow!
