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.

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

Rough was poor and greens were beat up. Golfers do a poor job of fixing their ball marks. Bunkers were excellent.

Interesting layout

Links course winds through the Biltmore neighborhood. Black tees have some very interesting elevated tee shots especially on the last few holes. Quite a bit different from the flat Adobe course. Not in as good of shape as the Adobe course, but definitely fun and worth the money.

Worth playing!

Links course was fun and in good condition. A nice resort course with wide fairways, tee boxes and greens in good shape. Not too challenging for weekend/vacation warriors. Bar and grill A+ with nice outside eating area.
There are a few signature holes that are quite fun.

Nice course, fun to play

This is a nice course. The back nine is a bit more challenging and has better scenery. Overall course conditioning was not the best, but for the money, it was playable and did not adversely affect the play. Tee areas need to be improved. Lots of divots and they were not seeded. All the tees seem to be mounded in the middle. They really need to be redone. Bunkers were generally playable. Pace of play was just under 5 hours. We waited a lot, but not for longe times except at the turn. Hot dogs were great!!
GO!
PLAY!

Tale if two nines!

Biltmore Links course is really a true Tale if two Nines. Front nine is sort of pedestrian in its layout and hole design. Short par fours and threes give you a little sense of an exec style course. Make the turn and get ready for some great holes, testy Little par threes and fours and some beautiful views of the surrounding area.
Great staff in the shop and Cliff the starter was very helpful and really chipper!
They might have a little better communication at the bag drop and load as we had to ask about when and where to go to start. Other then that a great track and decent value for winter golf in the area. Definitely would play again.

Too Slow

Course was generally in good condition. Greens held well and the greens were running at about 10. We played the front in about 2 hours, but quit after 15 holes on the back after almost 2 hours on the back nine. At one point there were four foursomes on some of the holes. We did not see a marshall all day. Regrettable, because the entire back nine was backed up. And this was a Thursday.
