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.

So I parked my car and a gentelman in a cart asked me if I wanted a ride to the entrance 100 yards away. That was nice. I got to the pro shop and asked to purchase balls for the range and after swiping my card I signed and he forgot the ranged was closed. He said he returned it to my card and 4 days later theres no refund. Ok so I take my clubs to where the starter is and place my clubs down while theres 3 guys who see ne waiting and they go about their buisiness. After a couple minutes a guy named Tom asked for my name and said I could grab any cart I wanted. I had $3 in my hand to tip the guy but I guess hes rich because I had to carry my own clubs to the cart. He told me there would be a scorecard and towels in every cart but I had to go back and ask him for both. As far as the actual course it was beautiful , very well kept and a challenging layout with perfect green speeds. The only part of the actual playing experience that i didnt enjoy was the amount of workers and one guy in particular had a loud weed whacker and wouldnt shut it off as we took our approach shots. Beside that it was fun and when we finished a young starter offered to clean off the clubs and escort me back to the car. So that was my entire experience which was great for the price I paid but I would have been ticked off if I paid full price.

Got a great hot deal on this course (which usually runs over $100 a round). Was stuck behind two foursomes for the majority of the round, but the course was in excellent shape and had a great layout so we didn’t mind enjoying the scenery and views of the Biltmore while waiting in between shots. I wouldn’t play here for over $100 on my own dime, but if you get a good deal it’s definitely worth checking out. Staff was excellent as well and they have a nice restaurant overlooking the course.

Good layout in pretty good condition. Very playable. Had to get used to the hundreds of iguanas! Disappointing that play was actually very light, but a threesome refused to let us (2-some) play through. we eventually skipped a hole and played on.

Always a pleasure to play Biltmore; especially if you like the old classic courses. There's not a railroad tie in sight, good shots are rewarded, bad ones not, and when the wind picks up, as it does most days, the course shows its teeth.

Crews are still picking up from Irma, so there's a little more work going on and unfinished landscaping then one might prefer, but it doesn't interfere with play.

Thank goodness for GolfNow; even for this beauty I'm not paying rack rate in the high season.....

After staying two nights in the iconic Miami Biltmore Hotel next door, I couldn't wait to tackle this equally historic Donald Ross course. Mother Nature had other plans. I was only able to get through 12 holes before the rains that have plagued South Florida came pouring down again. This was only the northern tip of a tropical storm, not the hurricane winds from Irma that ripped down hundreds of trees and branches on the course earlier this fall. The piles of debris I could see lining several fairways also line many of the streets in the surrounding neighborhoods. The entire region is still making a comeback. All in all, conditions were good. The greens putted tricky tough.

The holes I did play were very much a treat. I hope to come back. By then, a new Jim McLean golf school will be operating out of the expansive practice facilities, adding another exciting chapter to this legendary golf resort. It opens Jan. 1.
