The Links at Arizona Biltmore Golf Club is the "younger" of two golf courses on the Biltmore property, and offers intelligence and innovation, with little room for impatience, on a much-feted design that fast gained reverence from both local and visiting golfers. The golf course features fairways that wind amidst lush pine trees and some of Phoenix's showier houses, greens so bunkered that precision is the minimum to shoot for, and contoured greens that roll as they come. Put the ball where it belongs, and it'll show up on the scorecard; put the ball where it doesn't, and that will show up, too.

After your round on the Links at Arizona Biltmore Golf Club, head in for one of several dining options, from Southwestern to French to Asian to fusion dishes, as well as snacks and high tea post-tee.

Looking to do more than get on the Links at the Arizona Biltmore Golf Club and have a nibble and a cup? Look into one of several packages available, including stay-and-play deals.

Back 9 Worth the Wait

I have reviewed this course before. You will find the front 9 holes fairly straight forward, although there is a blind -approach par 3 that you do not see every day. But the front 9 is all prelude to the back 9 that moves into foothill terrain and some fairly interesting holes. The fairways undulate and there are multiple elevated tees and/or greens you will navigate. A fun par 3 with a 100+ yard drop from an elevated tee caps off the adventure. The fairways were a bit stressed from the heat though very playable. The greens were all running slow on this outing.. I am guessing that they were being grown out from being punched and sanded a few weeks bak.

Usually a great place to play however

I love the links course however today was a free for all out there and it was very disappointing. I don’t know if it’s the heat and not a lot of people out there but this group that was not ahead of me on the front 9 was so obnoxious that I quit by 12. They must have skipped over and after waiting around, replaying holes (no one behind me) I finally just gave up. The staff did nothing it seemed as though they just didn’t care.

Questionable management.

The links course is a short but fun course. I have enjoyed playing it for years.

The layout is good, and the bunkers were in excellent condition.

The grass from tee to green was patchy. The pin placement was not thought out as it was right in the middle of terrible patches occasionally.

The range is $10 to hit off of mats. After seeing a group of 4 adults hitting off of the grass, a lone teen joined them. The range attendant ignored the adults as they left but asked the teen if he knew how to read. No reason to be rude.

They take the appearance of covid protections seriously but have no problem forcing strangers to share carts with dozens available.

Finally, the halfway house reeks of propane. I felt bad for the young lady that had to work in there.

Leaving this review on a good note, Hailey on the beverage cart was great!

Father's Day Round

As with other reviewers, the greens were pretty rough, bumpy and the tee boxes were dried out and hard on many of them. Fairways were probably the best part along with the pace of play.

Good stuff.

Course is in good condition... Dry in spots, but that’s to be expected with 110-115 degree days. Staff was very friendly. Thanks for the good price for golf. I will be back for sure!

Disappointing Conditions

Maybe it's the fact that Phoenix metro has so many nice courses or the fact that it's June but the Links at Biltmore is nothing more than an average experience. The views help it but the course conditions are what hurts this course.

There are some unique holes like 16, which has a huge elevated tee box and 17 which has a beautiful view of downtown Phoenix and yes a few local mountains present nice views.

All told, it''s worth playing once but I can't bring myself to recommend it more than that.

Poor conditions

Conditions are not what they used to be. Tee boxes are badly beat up, greens are spotty and slow and a handful of areas around the greens are bare. It’s not a bad little course but there are plenty of tracks in the area in far better shape for the same price.

Links weekend

This is a really neat little course. Lots of variety and interesting par threes. I played on the weekend and unfortunately it played quite slow. I feel the value is there if you find a special rate or play twilight. The staff is efficient and friendly. At the right price I have no problem recommending this course.

Disappointed at Biltmore

Staff needs a lesson in customer service. We felt we were not wanted, the staff was unfriendly, rude and not helpful. Never going back
