The Biltmore Golf Course in Coral Gables sits next to the beautiful hotel, an architectural masterpiece that was modeled after the Giralda Tower in Seville, Spain. Donald Ross designed the course in 1925 and the traditional layout has retained all of its original character. The golf course weaves through a series of canals that used to carry guests along in gondolas. The canals run alongside the lush fairways while towering banyan trees frame the elevated greens. Offering views of the historic hotel from nearly every hole, there are carts available but the golf course is worth the walk. The layout is popular not only for its historic scenery and verdant setting, but also for its playability. Over the years the Biltmore has been host to a number of professional golfers and celebrities ranging from Babe Ruth to Tiger Woods.

This is a good resort course. I haven't played many in the area, so I am not sure how it compares to others.

It is a very playable layout, nothing too difficult or unfair. The course is in good shape, but they were working on some of the greens so they were less than optimal. The pace of the greens were ok, but a little inconsistent. Looked like they had been aerated not too long before, but there was never any mention of it until we got there.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the course to anyone, and I would come back and play it again if in the area. Staff was very friendly -- and welcoming.

Played as a single which I am more than happy to do and flew round in well under 3 hours

Course is a reasonable layout in less than perfect condition with the stunning backdrop of the Biltmore Hotel

I enjoyed the pleasant change of a quick round but would struggle to justify the $120 green fee which was a “hot deal” from Golf now.

Every year we like to come down to Florida and we always include a stop at the Biltmore. It is not the best manicured course we play in the area, but it is always a fun challenge.

Had to wait beyond my tee time for 3 others running late. I was only able to okay 9 holes due to rain and late start. I was there an hour early to use the range. Nobody else playing and I wasn’t allowed to go out. The front 9 greens were air rated and I had condition. We reed off back nine

What a great place. The hotel is so cool and historic. The course is no different. Donald Ross would be proud. We played from the Blues which was 6400 yards but played like 7,000. A lot of really tough par 4’s on this course. The greens were insanely fast. It’s almost impossible to keep an approach shot on the green. This is definitely a stop you should make if you’re in Miami, you’ll feel like Al Capone or Gatsby at this place. The staff could’ve been a little more helpful and the starter seemed rushed to get everyone out because we let 2 groups play though and still finished in a little under 4 hours. This is a course I would love to play everyday however and hope to play again before I leave.

I was keen to play this course given it is a Donald Ross design from the 20s and set against the backdrop of the iconic Biltmore. The course was in reasonable condition, although the greens, which are not the easiest anyway in true Ross style, were a bit patchy and very hard in place (such that you did not always get full value for good shots). Practice facilities are decent and pace of play was fine (just under 4 hours for a two ball and we did not have to wait until the 16th hole). If you can get a good Golfnow price (a day or two before and you can maybe get a hot deal for not much more than $50), it is well worth a visit.

Thought the course was well worth the value of the greens fees. I really appreciated the Marshall getting my wife and I out before a foursome. We finished in just over 3.5 hours.

A nice day of enjoyable golf.

The greens were not worth the money we paid. I played with a group of GM here and all found the greens not to be in the best condition. They were dry and not smooth. The fairways were in ok condition while the tee boxes were pretty rough. The bunker were very playable and never found one to be in terrible shape. Overall I don’t think I would recommend this course in this rate range, which was well over $100 per player. We played since we were able to get a Hot Deal, but it’s still too expensiveness for the course conditions.
