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.

The only issue we had was pace of play. Teed off at 8:00 am on Saturday and it took over 5 hours to finish. If they had a Marshall that was effective it would have been a better experience. The course was in great shape. We will play again with the hope that something is done to help the pace of play.

The Good:

It was a beautiful day and the Links Course hosted a tournament earlier that morning so we were the first off the tee. No traffic for us, but we heard everyone talking about how backed up this course gets. The greens were fast and rolled really well. The course was green and mostly in good shape. Every hole was different and the drink carts visited frequently.

The Bad:

This is a typical resort course with surrounded by houses and condos, and plays very short. A driver and nothing more than a wedge for most of the day. The tee boxes were torn up and sandy. Postage stamp small greens might frustrate players. The bar service was terrible and the food was average. Not enough drinking water on the course if you ask me.

The Verdict:

If the weather is nice and you can get a deal on greens fees, it might be worth playing. For me, it was just average and too short for my play.

Bad layout, sub par course conditions and a 5 hour round. Nothing good to say about this course - terrible experience. I play over 100 rounds a year and this was the worst of the 100 for sure. Avoid this goat track.

It’s worth it to play the Biltmore because of the back 9. The back 9 is about a 9 our of 10, the front is a 5. It’s weird because the Adobe course is more links style and the Links course isn’t links style at all. The Biltmore Beer is good and bratwurst was great. The pizza place Base Pizzeria is next to the 16th hole and it’s great. For under $50 Biltmore is good value if you play the links. Lots of terrible golfers to pace is very slow

Unless staying at Biltnore don't play here. Staff not friendly. 3 of last 4 times not enough golf carts. Had to be shuttled to range and back. Range in horrible condition. Again, unless package deal and staying nat Biltmore too many other options to play in Phoenix area. I won't be back!

Great weather mixes with Members who play at their pace no matter what that pace may be. Marshalls will not hustle members who slow play.

This happens mostly in the PM here on perfect days. Mornings pace is very good.

I was shocked at how poorly this golf course was. For an iconic location, they need to invest in staff that is interested in making your golf experience enjoyable, spend some money on the course- it was not nearly up to par for similar facilities and update the facilities. I won’t go back.

Great course to practice your irons, no need for a driver here I hit hybrid and still had 9 irons into most greens. Greens were perfect and rolled true. Pace of play was a little slow but that’s to be expected when you send groups out every 7 minutes. Great value after 2pm only $45. Staff if very friendly and love the practice area. Saw Alice Cooper to boot. Would play again for $45
