Type Resort
Some consider the Adobe golf course at the Arizona Biltmore Golf Club to be grand and stately, a prime example of golf course design in the pre-modern era, combining rare beauty with solid trickery. It makes for a round both relaxing and challenging played on lush 50-year-old fairways, with a spacious layout, reminding on of golf as it ought to be played: the glory days when graphite went into pencils and balls were only white. The Adobe golf course at the Arizona Golf Club measures 6,449 yards from the white tees and comes in at par-72. Due to the mild Arizona winters, the Adobe Golf Course at the Arizona Biltmore Golf Club is open year-round.

Popular Central City classic in Fine shape !

I'm fortunate to live just down the road -so convenient ! First Jullian was accommodating in that My Pal ran into delays & He expediently sorted that out 4Us.

Fairways have improved up at the beginning of the green complexes where they'd stressed & got a bit thin a while back. Sand in the bunkering is actually "fluffy", definitely WAY better than most this time of year ! Green speed was noticeably quicker than usual & rolled really well.

The staff there, Blake at the desk and Jimmy & Rosie outside & on cart duty just seem like pleasant People which adds to an enjoyable round of Golf at the Biltmore. Thank You Folks !

Very good course, reasonably priced, nice city views

The attention given to the golfer by staff is exceptional. They are very friendly and helpful. The Adobe Course provided greens and fairways in better than average condition despite the summer heat. The bunkers were well-kept and contained nice soft sand - a rarity at many other courses in the valley. The course is flat with generous fairways. The challenges are primarily around the greens with strategically placed bunkers. There are some nice city skyline views combined with great looks at Camelback Mountain. I started at 9 am. and finished at 11 am! I will definitely return and try the more challenging Links Course.

"A" for Adobe

Whenever I need a convenient, enjoyable and complete round of golf in Phoenix in the midsummer, I head to the Adobe course at the Arizona Biltmore. Conveniently located in the center of Phoenix on the Camelback Corridor, the Adobe delivers resort quality golf in a location that is nestled in the center of town. My twosome completed an unimpeded round in three easy hours given our late morning tee time. The greens were clean and true with hardly a ball mark anywhere. Fairways were in good condition and not overly moist allowing for adequate roll off the tee. Staff were friendly and showed a customer friendly demeanor.

Getting my golf in a timely, enjoyable manner and in a very convenient location makes for a great day on the course , never mind the score card .

Premier course...super time!!!

I had such a fun time playing the course forr the first time!!! It was in great shape in the hottest time of the year unlike other courses in the area. Plus the employees greeting & helping me were

So pleasant and helped to increase my experience.

To top it off I went into the restaurant for a nice cool drink and was greeted by more pleasant employees.

I definitely consider this golf experience as one of my best!!!

Nice Course

The Biltmore is always a nice course to play. This round the course was pretty rough do to the extreme heat we have had. But then they are no different than any of the other local course for they all are pretty rough right now.

Over all the Biltmore is worth playing when the rates are affordable.
