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.

I love this course and the layout is great, however the course itself was not in very good shape. Hard and bumpy greens and dry fairways. It is usually in great shape so I will definitely be back.

Greens lumpy bumpy from recently being punched

Adobe has a wide open layout that I would recommend highly to novice golfers. However almost too easy tee to green, as id recommend the Links side of Biltmore to any golfers under a 20 handicap. Greens were hit/miss as to how theyrecovered From recent aeration..
Some were flat out horrible and not worth trying again for a few weeks.

Always An Enjoyable Time

Biltmore Adobe is a staple for myself and my dad during the summer. The Biltmore/Wigwam summer pass is great value and all 5 courses are kept up well. Adobe is one of the easier layouts but it challenging enough that you want to come back and try to score better. Staff is always friendly, pace of play is always great (my dad is in his 80s and we finished our 4some round in 3 hr 50 min) and it’s a relaxing atmosphere.

Highly recommend for anyone just looking to play a quality course with fantastic views.

Adobe at the Biltmore

I was the first one off so that was nice. I finished 18 in just over two hours. This course is all laid out right in the middle of the estates whereas the Links course goes around the Adobe on the outside d has more personality. This course is very straight forward Golf course with not a lot of character to it. I found it to be very easy and quite frankly I was bored playing this course. Nothing challenging at all and I played from the black tees. At the same time I would recommend it to my friends because they are hacks.

Flat, parkland style course

A very straightforward track with tree lines and flat conditions. Pace of play was great, we played as a 4some in the weekday in 3hrs 15 min. Forgiving course that is only about 6400 from the tips. Enjoyable round but not worth the $60 we paid.

Average at best

An older, traditional, grass-and-tree-lined course. It felt tired and blah. I never got excited playing any of the holes from the whites. There was little challenge. Unfortunately, during the current Coronavirus epidemic, the rims of the cups were pulled out by an inch so you could not sink a putt but rather were considered to have holed your putts when you hit them. Although I consider this overkill,, I didn't downgrade the course for that.

Adobe Twilight

I feel the course is a little over priced so I prefer to look for specials or book twilight times. Many holes run parallel to holes coming in the opposite direction so you have to be careful off the tee and watch for oncoming players. Overall the course staff are efficient and pleasant. The course is always in respectable condition although the greens run a little slow. At the right price I would recommend this course. It is forgiving, does not play particularly long , but is defended by firm smallish greens

Still soggy

Lots of standing water still on the course. Greens were drying out and smooth, but still slow. Played in 4 and a half hours with no waiting and no one waiting for us.

Soggy rainy day

Course was pretty wet. Some standing water on greens and cart paths. Fairways were still firm. Nobody else on the course. Played 18 holes in 1 hour and 45 minutes. Great day, wish it rained more often.
