Arizona Biltmore Golf & Country Club
Course from a different era. You can imagine Gatsby here. Surrounding estates were spectacular.
Guess you need to play it once just to say you did. Easy track. Conditions were good. Greens rolled well. Staff was very helpful. Easy to score well. Not crowded at all.

great vistas and surrounding real estate
great golf but horrible pairing with two men that had limited exposure to game. i.e.- did not tend flag or replace, stand in line of putt, shadow over hole and line while i am putting, talking constantly while you are putting or hitting shot and LASTLY..................assumed shot position over ball for fourteen seconds on each shot. WOWEE, THESE GUYS NEED AN ORIENTATION LESSON TO THE GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!! was with my wife (12 handicap) and i did not want a scene.

Enjoyed my round - Great scenery
It had just rained the night before and only a few hours before my tee time too. The course did not have any standing water from the rain. So, it must have fairly good drainage.
I was greeted when I arrived at the course and asked if I would like to pair up with another single as no one else booked my or the other gentleman's tee time. Our tee times were a half an hour apart. We were told we could play as singles or pair up.
The course was in good condition and very green. We saw maintenance crews working around the course fixing bunkers, etc. (They did not get in the way of play)
The wet grass made things a little more difficult, but that is not the courses fault.
The greens appear to have been rolled as they were fairly smooth. They did have slopes, but not harsh undulations as some other course have.
There were several interesting holes where you needed to decide if it was better to bomb the shot or layup. There were fairway bunkers in strategic locations to make you think about your approach. Several holes had bunkers guarding the greens. Some of the bunkers are fairly deep.
This course required a bit or course management and less grip and rip. There are a few holes where you can let loose if you want to. There are orange posts in the fairway to give you an aiming point or to let you know where the dogleg runs.
I enjoyed the course despite the rain and wet conditions. I will play here again. I'd like to see how it plays in good weather.

for the monwy there should be a starter
we arrived early and were told of the frost delay...when we heard our name called on the loud speaker we rode over to the first hole and waited for another twosome to join us....it seems they teed off and left us there ,the next group was a foursome who told us that they had been moved up and so we played the first nine holes waiting on every hole...until the turn when we jumped infront of them and found the twosome that was to have been paired with us on the 11th tee waiting....we teamed up with them and to our surprise we did not wait on another hole....where was the starter??!!
