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 6,430 yards from the white tees and comes in at par-71.

Due to the mild Arizona winters, the Adobe Golf Course at the Arizona Biltmore Golf Club is open year-round.

Really Fun

The AZ Biltmore is conveniently located. It's a 6,000 yard plus course in great shape. We had a lot of fun.

Love the place

It's just laid out so lots of balls flying around you while playing. Lots of people yelling fore if that explains it but the houses around this course are absolutely worth the ticket price. Amazing!

Very friendly staff and efficient staff. Course is not difficult but the greens are small and bunkers well designed which makes the course challenging Only real oddity is that there is no starter or announcement system so you are never certain if your playing partners are on time

We wanted to walk but they did not allow this The layout of the course is funky but definitely would be easy to walk. If you don't know the course it is difficult to tell what fairway you should hit. Not a hard course but very different. We will not be play ing there again.

beautiful condition

The fairways, rough, and greens were in extremely good condition. Bunkers had nice sand and in good shape. I loved the course. It is a fairly easy set up with wide fairways and very little trouble areas.

Course is challenging, fair and fun for average golfer

Very well maintained with very good greens. Older style fairways allow playing from the rough compared to more “desert” style courses. Parking at the facility was difficult with weekend late morning tee time.

Enjoyable Round

My wife and I had a very enjoyable round. Pace was under 4 hrs., set up wasn’t very challenging but we expected that. The course was in good shape even with all the rain the previous day. The views and the homes surrounding are impressive. Finished it off with a great sandwich at the Adobe Grill.

Beautiful course and in superb condition

Fast greens with subtle breaks and slopes, well manicured fairways and bunkers. The pace was relaxed, and although we waited on the foursome ahead, it gave us more time to appreciate the surrounding landscape and homes. We finished in under 4 hours. The rough was forgiving green grass with some trees. Some water hazards, but rarely crossing fairways.
We will play this one again!

First time playing there. Glad that I played. Course was in good shape, with quick, tough greens. Plenty of sand in bunkers. Need more rakes!!
The views of the surrounding homes and back yards added to my enjoyment.
