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.

Not What I Expected

This course was in average to poor condition so I was a little disappointed after being told it was in good condition. The course has a fair layout on the front nine however the back nine is a bit more interesting and the views are great. I would recommend playing this course but only if the conditions are favorable otherwise you should play elsewhere.

A tale of two nines

Front side is not in great shape, particularly the greens. Back nine is much more interesting and in much better condition.
Parking is very tough, especially with a tournament going on.
Play was slow and did not see any marshals on the course.
Staff is friendly.

Horrible greens

I played today for the first time expecting for the price I paid I was going to played a decent golf course, but unfortunately it was totally the opposite. Green were slow, bumpy, and very bad shape. I read some of the review from two months ago and I realized this is not new. You can play many golf course in The Valley for lesser price and in much better conditions.
Also, when we arrived we were approached by the person in charge to retrieve our bags, after that it seems that we were not there. We had to fill with ice our own cooler, and had to ask for direction where to go because nobody was paying attention.
Of course after we finished the round was the only time someone approached us.
I do not recommend this place to anybody, and certainly will be very difficult for me to play here again.
I regret that I did not read the review before I went.

The green were VERY furry and bumpy. I’ve played several courses in the Valley this week and the greens here were the worst by far. They are usually in good shape.

Poor!

Horrible place of play. After hole 1, we had 3 groups waiting and didn’t get better from there. Our cart died on hole #-13, which didn’t delay our pace since it was soooo backed up.

Links-best course

Course conditions were good. Greens in good condition. Fairway Bermuda had grown in and looked great. Course cut low. Used every club in bag. Last par three on front a little funky. Tee box hard. Shot over tennis court. Course has it all. Hills,water, elevated tees and mature trees. Like it. Links is more fun than Adobe course.

very enjoyable

Pro shop staff friendly and professional. We were first off the tee at 645 am on the Links and finished in under 3 hours. Course in good condition and well maintained. Greens good shape but very hard. Couple of par 4's that were out of character with rest of course (was our first time playing here so would know how to play these holes in future). Would play again

Good allaround

For price the Links course is very competitive. One of best values. Greens good. Course allows you to hit most clubs in bag. Pace of play good for five holes ten ran into bottle neck. No Marshall. No range today because they rented it out to a drone group. Kinda unusual.

Interesting layout

A varied layout for a short but challenging course. Meandering through private homes, with some elevation changes and the need for precise shot making.
A slow bit enjoyable round.

Adobe traps, not sand traps.

Great. Purse but for 2 things;

1. The traps are filled with red Adobe, not sand. Hard on the clubs.

2. No
Marshall on the Course and pace was slow.
