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.

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.

Ok Course

Slow play and no Marshall or prompting on the GPS about keeping up.
I would not pay full pice to play on this course is it is not worth it as there are many bare patches but the greens were decent.
