I really enjoyed this course. The pace of play was very quick. The course itself was not too challenging but the greens are tough. Not fast but lots of undulations. Staff was awesome. Very friendly and helpful.

I really enjoyed the open layout & great views around the whole course. The only things that would have improved my experience were the greens were extremely slow & there were no markers on the tee box with a map of the hole like I’m used to...other than that I will definitely be back!

Played the Adobe early am, only saw one other group and finished under 3 hours. Greens in good shape, not real fast but true. Bunkers could use maintenance and more sand in them is only critical comment. Friendly Pro Shop staff. My Phoenix buddy said for $110 in December it’s a good deal. I’d play it again for sure.

The Biltmore is close to downtown Phoenix and the houses surrounding it are magnificent. The course is very flat, dated and was’t well groomed. Trouble is non existent as you can see the entire from almost any spot on the course. There are some nice holes however and the weather was great.

The course looks great, it was kind of shaggy. It will probably take a week for them to tighten up. All this is from the over seending that went in well. Love the Adobe course.

When I booked this time I didn't notice any indication that it was a foot golf booking. While the $15.00 rate should have been a warning signs, but when we got to the course they charged us $49.00. Why is Golfnow booking foot golf without bigger notifications.

A proverbial shooting gallery with five somes out on the course alternating to make foursome play. Pace was okay but idiots behind us hit up on us while we were waiting for group ahead. Greens were awful and terribly slow. This course is boring and the layout is awful. Worth $20 a round not much more.

I needed to get out and play a practice round . I came across a great afternoon price. It was 20.00 to play the course and they let us drive 90 degrees, which was a shock right after over seed. It's a fun course Their is not much danger and you can bomb away at almost every hole.

The course was really slow. Cart path only and had large outing shotgun about 25 minutes before our tee time. Course was flat and rather mundane. Staff was more worried about the outing people than the other paying customers. Won't go back for this course, but will try the Links course again.

Not a bad track - some decent variation and the course was in good shape for early October. Greens were slightly slow but nothing unreasonable, and they ran true. Got a great deal on green fees, so would play this course any time for that rate. Only problem, and it's not insignificant, is how they've crammed a driving range in between holes. We were literally dodging stray balls from the driving range on three separate holes - including having one ball land on the first green while we were putting. That's just plain irresponsible - put up some netting for crying out loud.....

just a perfect day and the course is in excellent shape... too bad it is about to be closed for winter seeding. Green as can be and the greens looked slow but rolled out, played long this morning fairways and greens were pretty wet. Oh the rough is grown up almost rolled right over my ball twice stay in the fairways.

The course was in great shape, however the bunkers and speed of greens were below average. I would recommend the course as pace of play was above average.

We got this round of golf really really cheap. However I am rating this course as if I paid regular price. Course was in very good shape except for the bunkers. Some of them had standing water. Greens were in great shape with a medium speed. I would guess about a 10. We played behind a 4 some and we were a 2 some. They did not offer to let us play thru. Probably since I was playing with my wife? We still played in 3:45. Not many water hazards. Not a resort course but they do not ask a resort price. Well worth the Golf Now price
