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.

What a WASTE!!!!!

So this course was closed for several months due to course renovations. But to be completely honest, I saw deterioration rather than renovation. The tee boxes are disgusting. The fairways were horrible. The only thing that was OK were the greens. I would not spend another dollar to play at this course with so many better options in town for less. The only thing you pay for here is The Name.

Excellent challenge

The greens are generally in excellent condition and roll very smooth and true. Some of the tee boxes and the fairways are very inconsistent and can be bare and patchy. The course layout is interesting and a good challenge to all levels. Plenty of water to keep the drives and approaches interesting. Not very long at 6700 from the tips, but the large greens are a good challenge with plenty of slopes.
A great location on the Biltmore hotel site with great amenities and post game services.

Course in poor condition but ambiance nice

Pretty disappointed in the course condition here. This place could be one of the best golf destinations in Miami, especially considering the Biltmore’s history with the city. The value is just not there if you do not get a good deal on one of the golf apps.

Pros:
Course layout is nice and not boring
Most of the course has the Hotel in the background, which is nice and adds to the ambiance of the game
Starters and staff are very nice and professional
Sand traps and greens are in excellent condition
Practice greens and chipping greens are excellent
Old Florida feel

Cons
Fairways and tee boxes are in terrible condition, so bad that it makes the whole course feel like a cheap public value course
Food is mediocre at best. This being the biltmore, they should be putting out items to make the golfers stick around
If you are paying anything over $80, spend the extra few bucks and play Trump Doral

Beware price quoted for tee time

I booked a round for 2 city of Coral Gables residents for $77 on GolfNow. When I checked in with the pro shop, I was charged $102. The pro shop staff said it was because my friend and I were going to ride in a cart. Even though I pointed out the price on GolfNow said "cart included," and showed them the reservation on my phone, the staff would not budge on the price.

Like I told the pro shop staff, I don't mind paying $102 to play, except the price I signed up for was different on GolfNow. Even though I spoke with a very nice GN rep on the phone, the price problem was never resolved, though she is sending a dozen golf balls my way.

Bottom line, to avoid surprises, verify the price with the Biltmore before playing.

The course is very good.

Nice round - condition of the fairway’s need more time to grow in.

Round was ok. Will play again once the course has grown in more. Great practice area made the trip from Aventura worth it! Place of play was fine about 4 and 1/2 hours.

Bad decision

The course is not in shape yet, it is not well marked for club pick up and where is the next hole and how to get in the restroom.

Ray

I’ve played this course 50 times over the years l like the changes they made and next year it should be a lot better as greens will not be rock hard and fairways grow in..i played there two times this week and the pro shop has no control of the course. 5 hours on Sunday 1/13:19 and 5 1:/2 hours Tuesday 1/15:19 I will not be going back again this winter.. There’s people who are not playing golf wandering on the course people kayaking in the canals. Slow slow....

Donald Ross greens

Nice large greens, true and quick, a real joy. Great staff. Do you ever put the hole location on 18 on the left?? The fairways are still not grown in yet. Great practice areas. I wish the cart paths had been removed during remodel, it's a great course to walk. I could tee off as a walker before the cart arrived on the next hole.

Really glad I only paid $45 thru Golf Now

We paid $45 with a Golf Now Hot Deal so we were happy. The course has only been open for 6 weeks or so after several months closure for full renovations. So we knew it was not going to be at it’s best, which it wasn’t, many fairways were in rough shape and had a lot of bare and repaired patches, although greens ran smoothly and bunkers were great. But what irked me, is that the current going rate on this course for out of towners is $200, while county pays $112 and Coral Gables residents $86. That is really poor value, especially considering the course was not overly busy. I think the Biltmore needs to research their pricing model a bit more, as any smart golfer has plenty of other courses to choose from that may still charge top dollar but at least will be in top condition. So find a Hot Deal or find another course.
