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.

Classic

The layout here is really solid. You must watch for fairway bunkers that, depending on which tees you play, will haunt you! Pace of play was perfect. The greens were slick with the grain and noticeably slower against, as it should be. They could've been a little better well maintained, but it's 105 every day here now, so they get a pass on this part. Bev guys were great. They brought me some food from the inside as I had not eaten and the heat was getting to me by the back 9. Price was a little inflated, but it's The Biltmore...will def come back and play again, yes, even in the hot Florida summer!

This course is in great shape. Greens have recovered nicely from the last aeration. The St. Augustine rough is ridiculously long in several places for its lushness. Lost 2 golf balls that didn't stray far from the fairway resulting in spending too much time looking for them.
Played as a single behind another single. No one behind me for several holes. Played in 2 1/2 hours.

Biltmore golf course

A fun layout with great conditions under Normal conditions - today the greens had been aerated
So they were substandard - but that has to be done

The only problem with this course is slow okay
They allow people to walk the course and this is a big course with long stretches between tees
First it takes a long time to walk and secondly by the 13th hoke walkers get worn out and really really worn out if it is hot

They should not allow walking during busy play

Aerated Greens

I love playing this course. Unfortunately the greens were aerated recently so putting was not enjoyable. Heavy St. Augustine rough claimed 2 balls from wayward shots that were NOT far off line. Considering the clientele, the rough should not be that long.

Way over priced

This course is way over priced. It’s a better deal to play at doral they include range balls. Greens are 100% there.

Great D.R. Course

I play here a couple times a month. the course has made some drastic improvements in the last few months. Course conditions have made leaps and bounds over the last 6 months and seem to just be getting better every time I play . The only negative/problem I continue to have is waiving the beverage cart over (if they actually come by). They literally drive by and don't stop to offer a drink or snack. This has been the only downside now that the course is in such great shape. looking into membership and will likely join now that the course has improved so much recently!

One of the Best Courses in the area

I would give the course a 4.6 star actually. Elevated and contour smooth greens, challenging layouts, very good conditions from tee box to green, beautiful scenery, good pace of play, etc. prompted me to recommend this course to anyone. I didn't give a 5-star because it's pricey and it doesn't include range balls when comparing to the nearby Truxxxx Doral courses, which are my absolute favorites. Other than these 2 drawbacks, you will enjoy the course very much.

Not very handicapped friendly

Beautiful course, well-maintained.
For golfers that have a problem walking, this is not the course for you.
You have to carry your clubs from the parking lot to the club drop, a distance of about 150 yards which is tough for an older golfer with trouble walking. They set my card on the handicap setting, but it still wouldn’t allow me to go into several fairways that were cartpath only
Bottom line, I walked painfully for about 500 to 700 yards today.
I love the golf course, but they don’t really accommodate people with walking handicaps.

Course is in very good shape. Excellent but challenging greens. Pin placements were tough as often 12-18" break must be figured in when the ball slows.
definitely will play again.

Good golf course

We enjoyed our around at the Biltmore golf course. It is a good golf course especially since the renovation last year. A fair test of golf for all level of players. The grass still needs to grow in more fully in a number of spots on the fairway and rough.

staff need training

Pro shop crew was fine, not welcoming but not off-putting. The starter and bag staff were not helpful, courteous, or pleasant. They seemed as if they're doing their penance. Instead of asking if they could place my bag on a cart, they simply pointed to the cart. They did not indicate that there were cart path only holes, (we are in the dry season). On these holes, you had to back out of fairway till on the path.
